Our group of four ladies joined the other pizza/gelato class members for a walk through Florence led by Chef Giovanni until we reached the kitchen classroom. A huge kitchen greeted us and Giovanni quickly got our attention as he aptly demonstrated how to make a pizza from scratch. Then it was our turn. It was fun, messy, and yes the Chef did have to reshape a few of the dough balls but in the end we were all very proud of our creations and loved our delicious individual pizzas. Chef Giovanni was friendly and thourough and we plan on putting our new skill to use in an upcoming pizza making party for family in the states. We really enjoyed our time in the kitchen. We also learned a lot about how to make gelato and received very useful info on how to tell the fresh gelato over the mass produced as well as a fantasic lead for a shop for the 'best gelato of our lives'! We are very happy we choose this class.
Not only was this an educational experience, it was super yummy and a lot of fun!
Chef was INCREDIBLE and we all learned how to make the tastiest pizza's and gelato. It was a great experience and my daughter and I loved it. The entire evening from our walk through Florence to getting settled in the kitchen to tasting our hand made pizzas...it was a treat I will remember for a very, very long time. We all even received a certificate of excellence too! I would recommend this to everyone!
Do this one. The chefs are great fun and you'll learn how easy it is to make the gelato when you return home.
We were traveling Italy with two of our teenage grand daughters and thought we'd give this activity a try. It was a five star hit. We would definitely recommend this fun class to any one. We loved learning how to make pizza and gelato. A great evening that includes eating your own creation. Our two chefs were friendly and very helpful.
My wife and I had a really fun evening learning how to make pizza and gelato. The two chefs were a lot of fun to learn from. My wife is Italian and already knows how to cook pizza but she picked up some great, new pointers which she has already employed at home and I have had the pleasure of sampling her new skills.
Lots of fun with this hands on experience. A must do in Italy!!!!
Another highlight of our trip to Italy was taking this pizza and gelato class. Chef David and assistant Julio made the class fun and they kept us laughimg! Chef David taught us the technique of making a good pizza dough. As the dough was rising we learned how to make gelato, while sipping chianti. We learned how to roll out the dough and the technique of picking up the pizza with a long pizza paddle. Everyone's pizza was a success. The class was set up in the evening at 6:00 so it was perfect as dinner. They served more chianti with our finished pizzas and we never felt rushed. The gelato was our dessert. Plan this fun evening as part of your tour in Florence:)
I had a fabulous experience with this cooking class, so much fun and informative too. We were only 5 in the class which meant lot's of one-on-one teaching. The pizza turned out amazing and the chocolate gelato was SO delicious...we had plenty of red wine and we even sampled some tiramisu from another class! Great way to spend an evening in Firenze!
First class class !!
You will enjoy your creations and learn some great cooking tips
The cooking class was fantastic!!! Our family had so much fun and the pizza and gelato were outstanding. We acatually learned how to make the Pizza and Gelato. The chefs were such good teachers. We as a family are still talking about the experience.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience, we were lucky enough to just have 6 of us on the course so got lots of help. The chef is great, friendly, experienced and the kitchen you get to cook in is great. Sadly my first attempt at making it on my own after the class didn't fair so well but that was mainly due to lack of proper tools so make sure you get a good pizza tray. Enjoy!
What a fantasic way to spend 3 hours in the evening. After taking a 10 minute walk to a nearby facility, chef Andrea took took over the reins and showed about 14 of us how to make delicious pizza and gelato. All of the ingredients were provided to make our dough from scratch and garnish our creations any way we wanted. Chianti wine was served and everyone had a great time creating either pizza or calzones. The cheese and sauce was amazing and all of the toppings were delicious. We made chocalate gelato from scratch and it was amazingly smooth.. I highly recommend this tour.
This was so much fun. Our teaching staff were very experienced, entertaining and informative. Definitely a tour not to miss. We had two teenagers with us and they really enjoyed it as well.
We had such a fun time making pizza and gelato. Our chef Davida was such a good teacher. We shared travel stories with the others in the class, drinking wine and creating our pizza's. A real fun way to experience Florence!
Me and my girlfriend have done the gelato and pizza cooking class and we had an excellent night with our chef Davide. Modesty aside, one of the best pizzas we've ever had, really good.Plus Davide is an excellent chef and a great person, giving us tips about restaurantes, recipes, etc
Great fun. Hands-on dough making, and you add your own toppings. The range of toppings was delicious but could have been bigger. Free red wine and gelato made the evening laid back. The chefs were hospitable. If you struggle walking long distances, arrange to meet at the kitchen rather than office.
Really enjoyed making our own pizzas and calzones. The chefs were very informative and it was a great evening.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. We were paired with a lovely couple and our chef, Francesco, was the best! We laughed a lot but made an amazing meal! We really enjoyed sharing the meal with everyone when it was done.
We had alot of fun. We met people from all over and had some great food. Our teacher was wonderful and the kitchen was clean and well lit.
This class was the highlight of our trip in Florence. Giovanni is a great teacher and it was wonderful to have such a fun and interactive class. We're going to make the pizza this weekend!
We had so much fun doing this cooking class. It was a great "break" from all the delicious dining we had been doing in the restaurants. Our chefs were fun, helpful and entertaining. We were three couples and initially the guys didn't seem too thrilled about cooking their dinner but in the end, they agreed, it was a lot fun. We learned about the art of pizza making and gelato and had a FABULOUS time doing it!
