CAMILA LOEW is the founder of Sobremesa and Sobremesa Culinary Tours. After receiving her Ph.D. in Humanities and an academic career, her focus shifted to food, specializing in health-supportive cooking, and attended culinary schools in Barcelona and New York City.
Camila and her family lived in Barcelona for 15 years, where she fell in love with the Mediterranean way of cooking and eating. They moved to Berkeley in 2013, where she became known throughout the Bay Area for her authentic paellas, prepared on site at many parties, and for teaching Spanish and Mediterranean cuisines.
She is a certified nutrition consultant and works with clients individually as well as at the Cancer Support Community, where she teaches Eating for Healing. She is also Academic Coordinator at the Torribera Mediterranean Center, a joint venture between the University of Barcelona and the Culinary Institute of America, promoting education on Mediterranean diets.
Camila loves tea, Japan, and picnics. Although she misses Berkeley’s food scene terribly, in 2018 Camila moved her home base back to Barcelona. She continues to develop the culinary travel wing of Sobremesa, offering food-based tours to Japan, Barcelona, Jerusalem, and the Basque Country.More about Camila
