Learn how to make pizza and gelato just like the Italians do! Join our late afternoon cooking class where our chef will be happy to introduce you to the history of these iconic Italian creations! Make pizza in the oven with our professional pizza chef (pizzaiolo).
You will learn how to create tender, flexible yeast dough that stretches to almost paper-thinness, and then the “tricks” to make a tasty but light tomato sauce. Even when you bake pizza in your own oven back home, you and your guests will taste the difference.
With the pizzaiolo, you’ll make your very own pizza, you’ll stretch it, sauce it, bake it, slice it. It will be the best pizza you ever tasted, and you made it yourself! So, come to make pizza in Florence! After the Pizza it’s time for a Gelato!
The chef will briefly fill you in on why gelato remains Italy’s favorite dessert and why the ‘gelato culture’ continues to grow. You will get to know the basic raw ingredients, learn how to select the best products available following specific principles and you will have a presentation and tasting of some of the flavors used in gelato making. You will learn about the development and application of natural colors, the heating and freezing techniques and how they have different effects on ingredients. In fact, you learn how to make real Italian ice-cream.
We strongly recommended this pizza/gelato day for families that want to have their children learn about Italian culture and food. It’s an easy and fun experience that will last forever in their memories.
