About Chef Enrico Sgarbossa

Originally from Bassano Del Grappa, Enrico began his career as an apprentice pizza maker under the famous Italian pizza chef Valerio Valle at Compagnia della Pizza, who taught him the art of pizza and trained him to be a pizzaiolo. 

In 2014, he was employed by an Italian flour mill as a technician where he extended his knowledge of different types of flour. Enrico was able to work and learn from some of the best pizza chefs, pastry chefs and bakers among the hospitality businesses in Italy.

Then in 2016 he opened “Al Taglio, The Art of Pizza”, a unique and gourmet pizzeria in Australia, a combination between the art of food and baking to provide a light, innovative, healthy and new pizza.

He loved the way Agugiaro & Figna started with a new “Integrated Grinding” (a grain grinding model), which combines two types of grinding and is the best way to maintain the quality of the single grain.

Chef Accolades:

2014: 1st place in Giro Pizza d’europa (European championship)
2014: Head flour technician and global consultant for leading Italian flour mill Molino Dalla Giovanna.
2015: 11th place at the Pizza World Championship in Parma (Italy)

We did the French cooking class and really enjoyed it. The class was fun, engaging and very organised. All of the ingredients were fresh and the food were delicious. Chef Julien was very helpful throughout the class and he would make sure that everyone knows what they were doing. Also, he was entertaining thus making the whole class very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Vive Cooking School!

What a fantastic experience! We did the Asian Steet food class and had a brilliant time. Jean-Luc was a wonderful teacher, and the class was super fun and easy to follow. Shout out to Marguerita for being the real MVP of the night, facilitating the class and helping us navigate the equipment. We can't wait to come back and do another class soon!

I came from Singapore for a holiday and i found out about their molecular cuisine class. It was very informative and fun! The result was yummy, especially the chocolate ice cream!

There's a good reason why this cooking school has such good reviews. We went in with high expectations and they were exceeded. The Ramen Masterclass was hands-on, fun and relaxing – Chef Steffen taught valuable kitchen skills and kept the class going at a good pace. Recipes were emailed at the end of the class and there were plenty of leftovers to take home. Due to the intimate class size, I recommend this cooking school over many other highly commercialised classes in Sydney. Looking forward to the next class!

I attended the Lousiana cooking class yesterday - where I learnt to cook seafood gumbo, dirty rice and okra chips. This is hands down the best cooking class I have ever attended (I've been to 4 in sydney). Chef Julien was very entertaining and informative - not only I got to learn to cook, but I also learnt how to fillet a snapper (first time in my life), how to cut veggies properly, and various other useful tips!!! The cooking school itself is modern, clean, and decorative. Overall it was a fun class to do and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended..
