What you will do
6 hour class
What makes this Notting Hill course so unique is that before the cooking it's the shopping. You will meet at Portobello Road market, which is a vibrant and bustling melange of stalls selling food produce from all over the world. Charlotte and Claire will show you how to select the best quality ingredients in order to create dishes together, taking inspiration from what is fresh and seasonal at the market that day.
Laden down with bags bursting with fresh produce and herbs, it's time to head back to their bright and airy Notting Hill abode. As you gather round in their homely kitchen, the goodies you brought from Portobello market will be unpacked and the cooking begins. 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.
All in all you might be preparing up to 10 dishes, but don't worry, there's no need to try and remember everything or make notes, as electronic recipe cards are provided after the course.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, Enrica Rocca

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.
