While Sobremesa literally means "over the table," the more meaningful translation is a bit longer-winded. It's that time spent after a meal, hanging out with family or friends, chatting, and enjoying each other's company. It can be applied to either lunch or dinner, and often includes family members, but also friends — and it can even include a business lunch.
A bit of history
Since the arrival of European, African, and Asian immigrants centuries ago, their food culture and ingredients have merged with those of the local indigenous to create the evolving cuisine of Latin America. Sobremesa will take you on a journey through the vibrant and colorful dishes of South America, a cuisine that can be described as a melting pot of South American cultural diversity.
