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.

This was so much fun! The chef was a great personality, everyone in the class seemed to be having a blast! He pulled the kids to the front to make the gelato after we had all made our own pizza, our son was smiling ear to ear. We really enjoy cooking at home and this was a great tutorial on making perfect pizza crust. Different from the typical tourist stuff and really worth your time if you like to cook!

We are a Canadian family with three children ages 7, 9, 12 and I can say, without hesitation, that this was a highlight of our time in Florence. The kids LOVED it and we did too. Florenzo and Alex Alessandro did a wonderful job of keeping everyone engaged, amused and interested. They catered the information to both the children and the adults with good humour and lots of simple instruction. Our kids loved making their own pizzas and gelato and we left with very full tummies. In fact, it was the best pizza that we've eaten in Italy so far if I do say so myself. This is great value - a 3 hours class, great instructors, a full meal with wine tasting and dessert and a recipe book and 'diploma' to take away with you. You won't regret it...this is good times.

We had Alex as our training chef. He was GREAT -- smart, funny, and delightful. My daughter 13 years old and I took the class together and had such a great time and a GREAT meal as a result. Highly recommend.

Loved, loved, loved this! Our instructor was very clear on instructions and we had a blast making our own pizzas! The gelato was a group effort, but was sooo delicious! My husband and I had a great time bonding over this experience since we don and #39;t cook at home! I definitely recommend this!

Highly recommend this. We had a small group of 6 which was perfect. Daniel was our chef and he was so personable and helpful. This was a great class, good for teenaged kids and small groups. Both the pizza and gelato was amazing because it was made with love by us.

This was so much fun! I can't wait to show off my new pizza making skills and gelato to my family! The chefs were all really helpful and were very informative. I learned a lot of neat tricks from Giuseppe. He was funny and very engaging. I would definitely recommend this!

This was SO fun! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and Davide was such a great instructor. Definitely would recommend doing some sort of cooking class while in Florence, but we did especially enjoy this one!

Fantastic experience!!! Lorenzo, our tour guide was prompt, and friendly. He took us on a quick walking tour through the city, and brought us to Davide's kitchen. Davide was an excellent host. He taught us the secrets to making a delicious pizza, and then put our knowledge to the test. We started by creating the dough, and while we let it rise, we made a chocolate base for our gelato. Once the gelato base was ready and poured into the gelato maker, we returned to our rising dough, and stretched it to the perfect size and dressed it with herbs, sauce, and various meats and cheese to our taste. The best part of the class was when our pizzas came out of the oven, and we got to eat them! For dessert, we ate the gelato we had created earlier. Delicious!
Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience, and is one I would highly recommend, and would even do it again.
