The Enrica Rocca Cookery School gives you the chance to serve up a little bit of Italy on a plate - in Notting Hill. Having grown up surrounded by food made using only the best and freshest ingredients, it’s little wonder that Enrica’s daughters have stepped forward to continue the Enrica Rocca cookery school tradition in the heart of London.
So, meet your hosts for the day: Claire and Charlotte. Wiser than their years when it comes to all things culinary, you will learn a lot from this enthusiastic duo. There are two classes on offer, the Saturday class where you will do all of the shopping together first at the wonderful Portobello Market and the Thursday evening class where you meet straight at the kitchen to cook up an Italian Feast.
The menu will include some impressive looking (and equally impressive tasting) antipasti starters, a traditional pasta or risotto dish and a fresh meat or fish main course. In total, you might be preparing up to 10 dishes, but don't worry, there is no need to try and remember everything or make notes, as electronic recipe cards are provided after the course.
As the wonderful smells start wafting through the air, this lovely kitchen in Notting Hill has suddenly transformed itself into a hive of activity in a typical Italian home, with lots of chatter over the chopping and the occasional chink of a wine glass being refilled. This is what Enrica Rocca’s cookery school is all about - friendly, lively and really rather brilliantly flamboyant.
