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 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.

What a fun tour, there were about 12 of us total one family with kids and the rest adults. It was a 10 minute walk to the cooking school. Both of the chefs were friendly and knew what they were doing. The gelato making portion wasn't as hands on, they more showed how it was done with use of volunteers from the class. I would have liked for the to show not only how to make cream gelato, but also the fruit version. The pizza making portion was 100 hands on, pizza made from scratch from the mixing of ingredients until it went in the oven. I would definitely recommend
