Just loved this experience. Took a full day class with my wife and 21 year old son. Started at the Rialto Market, then went to the fruit and veggie wholesaler, then a bar for some prosecco and cicchetti and then in a water taxi to...More
We did the six hour class...met at the Rialto Market on a beautiful Tues AM. There were only four ”students” which was conducive to lots of questions, answers and discussions. Enrica seems to be a Venetian at heart although she has spent several decades in...More
We had a wonderful time in the Market selecting different foods for our cooking class. Scorpion Fish, octopus, squash flowers, Tuna, etc. then we went and had some wine and then back to Enrica's home to cook. We started at 10:00 and were done about...More
What a grand time!
A perfect day spent with Enrica Rocca ~
We began our morning visiting the fish Market and choosing our various seafood to prepare.
We then visited the produce market choosing our vegetables and herbs with which to prepare our feast.
Where to start? If you love food, good quality products and enjoy speaking with a passionate and extremely knowledgeable person, please make sure you book a cooking class with Enrica. This will be the highlight of your Venice trip, I promise.

Enrica Rocca took us around Venice to show local way to pick, shop, prep, cook, and eat the Venetian way. Riato market, albeit decreasing and shifting to souvenir shops, offered fresh and finest local ingredients. She showed how to look for the right ingredients and...More

Dear Emma (Catherine),
I would have never refunded you the class without giving you an explanation...That would have been very rude and unacceptable! I sent you a message the minute I looked at my phone and realised you booking had vanished from my Google Calendar...More
My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Enrica during our cooking class in early November. We met near the foot of the Rialto bridge and then shopped for fresh ingredients at the fish market and local vegetable seller. We then enjoyed some wine...More
Enrica Rocca and her daughter/assistant Charlotte are the kind of people I would want to spend time with in Venice, even if I didn't take her all-day cooking class. But I did, and had the time of my life. Enrica introduced us to the fish...More
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
