Overview

Most trips to Italy involve plenty of pizza and cones of gelato but on this tour, you won’t just get to sample both specialties: You’ll learn how to make them (and will walk away with new skills). Class sizes are small, so you’ll receive personal instruction from a trained Italian chef. Make pizza dough from scratch, learn gelato-making tips, and enjoy tastings of both at the end of your class.

What to Expect

Your Italian culinary immersion begins in the afternoon or evening in central Florence, depending on the session you select. The class begins with an introduction to pizza in Italy, from its long history to its different regional varieties.

Once you’ve learned all about Italy’s favorite dish, don your apron and hat and get cooking. Class sizes are kept small, so you’ll receive personal attention from the chef. Learn how to make your own pizza dough from scratch, knead the dough, prepare traditional tomato sauce, and select your own toppings.

As the dough rises, you’ll also learn how to make gelato—Italy’s answer to ice cream, famous for its rich, ultra-creamy consistency.

End your class with a meal: Eat the pizza you made from scratch and enjoy gelato for dessert, plus glasses of wine or soft drinks. A recipe booklet is also included so you can try out your new skills upon returning home.

Very helpful after some confusion

My sister and I were originally booked for the prestige cooking class in the morning. Unfortunately, a third party voucher did not describe the meeting point accurately, and so we missed the tour. We went to the office, and admittedly were quite frazzled and distressed....More

Fun with pizza!

Charming chefs, giving us an overview of pizza techniques and some gelato history. I was surprised how easy the pizza dough was to make and how simple gelato is. This was a great evening, we made friends with everyone at the table.More
