Florence Cooking Class: Learn How to Make Gelato and Pizza

Florence Cooking Class

Watch how to make the two most important food groups – pizza and ice cream – with this Florence cooking class.

As you get started with your expert chef, learn about the history of pizza-making in Italy, and the distinct characteristics between pies from each Italian region. Sample an array of pizza flavors as you go and then throw your own creation in the oven to bake.

Continue with a lesson in dessert, as you receive instruction on crafting traditional Italian gelato. While this sweet treat does share similarities to ice cream found in other countries, it typically has a lower amount of butterfat and a unique freezing process that accounts for its dense, flavorful consistency. As your instructor shows you the secrets of the trade, enjoy plenty of samples to satisfy your sweet tooth.

After your class concludes, take home your insider’s tips from your chef to impress your friends in the kitchen.

This was a terrific experience. Our chefs were knowledgable, entertaining and eager to help us. We had a great group of all different ages which made it fun and the pizza and gelato was so good. I have since made pizza and gelato at home and it turned out marvelous thanks to our great instruction. We would do this again!

This was not only a tasty class but a fun class to participate in. Our two chief were informative and very friendly and took good care of the whole group. Would take any cooking class again if it was as fun as this one was.

Amazing - for the adults as well as the kids. I'm actually gluten intolerant and they made me pasta, so I could eat something too how very personable and kind.

We saved this for our last night in Florence and had a great time. Our group had a fantastic time with Daniel and David, and what better way to spend an evening than learning the fine points about pizza and gelato! Daniel and David were very engaging, knowledgeable and informative in a way that made the evening great fun for everyone. Highly recommend -- don't miss this one!

Very enjoyable evening. I was surprised how easy the pizzas were to make and it tasted good! Nice touch with the certificate and recipe book, and the wine while you wait for the pizza to cook!!
