Enrica Rocca, born and raised in Venice, has Italian food in her blood and a contagious zest for life. After having graduated from the famous Hotel School of Lausanne, she brought up her two daughters and ran two Italian restaurants in Cape Town for 11 years.
In London, she opened an Italian cookery school like no other, with an inspired mixture of shopping, cooking and eating that has captivated Londoners since her arrival in the city. After being voted top 10 cookery schools in the world by Gourmet Magazine, she decided to return to her roots and moved back to Venice, opening a second branch of the cookery school there. The school, housed in the family palazzo gives clients the chance to spend the day as a true Venetian, discovering the freshest local seafood at Rialto Market before returning to Enrica’s kitchen to enjoy a day of warmth, humour, local Veneto wines and delicious food. Dishes always comprise just two or three ingredients, chosen well, cooked simply and brought to the table with Gusto.
Venice has something very special to offer and will make your stay boutique, bespoke and unforgettable.
