Full Day Cookery Class and Portobello Market Tour

Source fresh ingredients from London's Portobello Market, before learning to cook them with Italian flare!

Cooking Experience Days: Italian cuisine is all about quality ingredients, cooked simply and served with love. During this hands-on course, in Notting Hill, you’ll embrace this philosophy as you learn to make a variety of authentic dishes – from market to table.

Your hosts for the day will be Claire and Charlotte, the daughters of the school’s founder. They’ve grown up around food, and you’ll benefit from their expertise and enthusiasm throughout the course, which begins with a shopping trip to Portobello Market. Here, you’ll seek out the best seasonal ingredients and take inspiration for the cooking ahead. You’ll return to the kitchen laden with fresh produce and herbs, thankful for a glass of prosecco, and ready to begin. Over a relaxed afternoon, Claire and Charlotte will guide you through the preparation of several delicious dishes. The menu varies from day to day, but will usually include five to six antipasti, a pasta or risotto dish, and a tiramisu for dessert. As conversation flows and wonderful smells begin to fill the room, you can look forward to a true Italian feast, with wines to complement.

The Full Day Cookery Class and Portobello Market Tour is a chance to develop your culinary knowledge and skills, in a warm and welcoming environment. An Experience Days gift voucher marks any special occasion with gusto!

Best Cookery Class!

What a great day! The weather was perfect for the day, we met everyone outside the tube station, and head down to Portobello Market to pick up fresh produce ready for cooking! The atmosphere of all the market sellers and locals was amazing to see. All food looked delicious and was exceptionally photogenic! Back at the workshop, we were set for creating a mountain of Italian dishes. A favourite would have to be the Sea Bass...so delicate and tender! My husband also thoroughly enjoyed the day and is ready to try out cooking (I hope!) 10000% recommend.

Wonderful Experience

My friend and I had a great time during this cookery experience! Charlotte and Claire who run the class were super friendly and guided us around Portobello Market to select our ingredients, all fresh and high quality! We then headed back to the cookery school and took part in cooking lots of Italian dishes whilst we enjoyed a glass or two or prosecco. The lamb fritters were absolutely delicious and a recipe I will be trying at home! Another highlight was making pasta from scratch. Overall, this experience was well organised, relaxed, with lots of learning and even more eating! 10/10.
