Start this cooking class in Notting Hill by shopping for all the ingredients in the vibrant and bustling Portobello Road Market!
The blue door that belonged to Hugh Grant’s house in Notting Hill can be found at 280 Wilbourne Rd, just off Portobello Road. It made its way into the film because screenwriter Richard Curtis used to live there. The original blue door was sold at auction and later owners painted the new door black as people kept writing on it. The current owners, perhaps loving the fame of their abode, repainted it to blue.
You will meet at Portobello Road market where Claire and Charlotte will show you how to select the best quality ingredients depending on the season and what is most fresh.
After about an hour you will head back to the kitchen with all the produce. Once settled with a glass of Prosecco, you will start to put together a feast of Italian dishes with your fresh ingredients. This is a relaxed atmosphere where the wine and chatter will flow throughout the day.
You will prepare up to 10 dishes including some antipasti starters, a pasta or risotto dish and either a meat or fish dish and finally a Tiramisu for desert. If that all sounds a bit overwhelming, don’t worry, the recipes will be sent to you electronically after the class.

Serve up a bit of Italy on a plate with this family run cookery school in the heart of Notting Hill. Escape for the day through wonderful smells, tastes and a hive of activity in a friendly, lively Italian kitchen.
Whether you do the shopping first at Portobello Market or meet straight at the cookery school, you can be sure that once the cooking gets going and the wonderful smells start wafting through the air, this lovely kitchen in Notting Hill will suddenly transform itself into a hive of activity seen 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.
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 in her footsteps. Claire and Charlotte are an enthusiastic duo, passionate about the food they cook.
