Venice cooking school 

Enrica Rocca opens her home, her heart and her passion to her clients when they attend her classes and wine pairings in the beautiful gothic city of Venice.  The Venetian Contessa shares with you her talent for cooking simple yet delicious food, her knowledge of Venice and its produce, and her own excellent Prosecco. She welcomes you in her flamboyant and stylish loft apartment, by a canal in the heart of the Dorsoduro district.


The dishes you will learn to cook together in Enrica’s kitchen, follow Italian and Venetian traditions but add a touch of creativity, by reintroducing the spices that Venice was so famous for during the times of the Republic. Classes are friendly and fun, where clients are treated as individuals, enjoying time with Enrica and new acquaintances, cooking and eating side by side.

-COOKING CLASS WITH Rialto MARKET TOUR

Upon Request
Between 5 and 10 people
Price per person: EUR 280.00
This is a 6 hour class with a flexible starting time and includes a tour of Rialto Market

This cooking class is great for corporate groups of up to 10 people where you will discover Rialto Market, one of the world’s most popular food markets and spend a day surrounded by all things Venetian. Characterizing these classes is the openness of Enrica inviting guests into her home, creating the informality and joie de vivre of spending time with friends.

You will meet at the market where together you will learn how to select the best quality ingredients at the finest fishmongers, butchers & vegetable stalls Venice has to offer. Menus are not created before hand, instead you will create dishes together, taking inspiration from what is fresh and seasonal at the market that day.  You will then head over to Enrica's kitchen a short walk away from the market with your bags bursting with delicious ingredients.

Once settled in with a glass of Prosecco, you will create a feast of Italian dishes that use a few well chosen ingredients, cooked with simplicity and brought to the table with gusto, all whilst enjoying a flow of wine and chit-chat around the kitchen island.
