I met Enrica Rocca in the nineties when she owned a restaurant in Wynberg Village and we used to go there all the time. She also gave Italian cooking classes there, and I remember taking these and feeling so inspired.
Enrica now lives and operates a cooking school from her villa near Venice, and I was very excited to hear that she had opened a branch of it in Cape Town recently. She has entrusted this to her friend and past student Emma Freddi who runs it out of her lovely Constantia home. Emma and her ex husband used to own Pasta Freddi, so you couldn’t find a better fit.
