Born in Buenos Aires and raised in the U.S, I lived in Barcelona for 15 years, until recently moving to Berkeley, California. I am married to a Spaniard and have two children born in Barcelona. In the past 10 years I became increasingly interested in cooking and eating delicious food while nourishing and caring for our bodies. After receiving my Ph.D. in Humanities, I studied health-supportive cooking in Barcelona, New York, and Berkeley. My cooking is for both pleasure and also health-oriented. We love to travel; for a few years now we have been active home-exchangers. We love to meet people from other cultures and celebrate the idea of EatWith to offer visitors a (culinary) glimpse into the cultures we know best. To me food means culture, community, sharing, pleasure, health and family. I currently teach Spanish and Mediterranean cuisines at schools all around the Bay, including 18 Reasons, The Cooking School at Cavallo Point, and Ramekins. I am also Academic Dean at Bauman College for Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts. But I love cooking for people at home!

What hosts are saying about Camila
Camila is a truly wonderful person and host. Her passion for and knowledge of food is unparalleled . I really appreciate how mindful she is about everything that she does. Also, her home in Berkeley is really beautiful. I had the pleasure of attending a sushi-making class as well as tea and healthy desserts at Camila's place. Her (really adorable) kids were present, which may not be for everyone, but which I really enjoyed a lot. Camila's husband was also there, and he is great. I learned a lot, at really yummy and healthy food (felt great long after I left) and had a great time. Camila is a talented chef and teacher and a wonderful person to meet and EatWith! :D
Camila and Israel provided us with a perfect evening of delicious food (amazing fish and salad!) and a very warm Barcelona welcome. It also turned out that we have a great deal in common (starting with a Berkeley, California connection) and I am sure we will stay connected for years to come. What a pleasant and unexpected surprise!
