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.

I went with my 2 teenage kids. It was a lot of fun, the teachers, Paola and Daniel, were very friendly and entertaining. The class was full-24 people-but everyone had a clear view of what was going on in the front and got individual attention when needed. I highly recommend it-tons of fun!

This was a fantastic experience! I loved being able to have the experience of making pizza from scratch, and watching as guest chefs prepared gelato chocolate to be shared among the group. Both tasted delicious! The instructors spoke slowly and clearly, modeled exactly what we needed to do, and circulated to help participants as needed. My one suggestion would be to break the instruction down to a step-by-step process the instructors tended to model all the steps at once, and then sent participants off to work independently. Providing a step-by-step process would help non-chefs such as myself to be more successful in preparing our pizzas. But this is a minor quibble the time flew by, I really enjoyed meeting my groupmates from all over the world, and the food was fantastic! Highly recommended.

Best of the 6 tours taken this trip!!! We got upgraded to the 3 hour tour that took us out to a winery out of the city in Chianti. Spend a few extra dollars and take the 69 euro tour rather than the 49 euro tour...well worth it I'm not a shill for any company,,,just a tourist like all of you reading thisFun, memorable and I so enjoyed myself. Alessio was a fantastic chef/guide/teacher. He was witty, charming, a great teacher and his English was great. I will tell everyone I know who plans to go to Florence to take this tour!!!!!
