About

 

Camila Loew, Founder and CEO, is the daughter and grand-daughter of intercontinental migrants, and has spent a third of her life among three different countries (Argentina, the US, and Spain). Her cooking style can be described as Mediterranean and vegetable-forward.

In addition to running Sobremesa, Camila teaches at culinary schools around the San Francisco Bay Area: The Cooking School at Cavallo Point (Sausalito), 18 Reasons (SF) and Ramekins (Sonoma).

Camila holds a Ph.D. in Humanities and is a certified Nutrition Consultant. She cooks daily for her family of four. When she's not in the kitchen, you can probably find her riding her bike around Berkeley or visiting the farmers markets.

Sobremesa's tours are led by Camila herself, who takes pride and pleasure in performing extensive research to plan the most amazing experiences for you.

The expert team of Sobremesa leads small, exclusive groups of foodie travelers on carefully curated trips, packed with food-related fun. We believe that food is an exceptional gateway into a new culture, and we love sharing that experience with our guests.

Activities include: cooking classes led by our team and local chefs we collaborate with; market visits; excursions to fascinating and beautiful places, both cultural and edible; and meals at some of our favorite local restaurants and cafés.

Shilpa Baliga, Barcelona Staff, grew up in the UK and holds a language degree from the University of Cambridge. She has lived and worked all over Europe, but for the last two decades has made Barcelona her home and knows all its hidden corners.

She has worked in and owned restaurants there and is delighted that there is now a new, passionate focus on all things local and natural. She has a decade’s experience in culinary tours in Italy.

Shilpa loves cooking daily for her family of four, hiking in the woods around her home in the hills above Barcelona and volunteering at her children’s school and in the city.

Rosel-web.jpg

Rosel Peña, Basque and Barcelona staff, was born in the south of Spain but has lived in Madrid most of her life. Her warm, friendly nature and generous hospitality denote her provenance from the south, though; she is always there for you, eager to help.

Rosel recently retired from a long career in the corporate field and decided to spend her time doing what she craved for so long: traveling!

Rosel's interests include long walks (I mean really long ones), singing in a gospel choir, and visiting museums. You will remember her smile much after saying goodbye.
