Full description

Learn how to make pizza and gelato just like the Italians in a late afternoon class. Your chef will introduce you to the history of the most delicious Italian creations.

You will bake a pizza called pizzaiolo with your professional chef. You can acquire the skill of how to make tender, flexible yeast dough that stretches to almost paper-thinness, as well as the trick for a flavorful yet light tomato sauce.

After pizza, you will try your hands at gelato. Your chef will explain why gelato remains Italy's favorite dessert while giving an insight into the gelato culture that continues to grow.

Know about the raw ingredients used for bases and principles for selecting the best products available. Then, enjoy a presentation and tasting of many of the flavors used in gelato making.

You will also discover the development and application of natural colors, heating and freezing techniques, and their effects on different ingredients. Uncover the secrets of the world's most-loved dessert and Italian culture.

Enjoy an easy and fun experience that will last forever in your memory.

    This was first time cooking class for pizza and Gelato making for my family. the kids thoroughly enjoyed it and Vera our chef was excellent in communication and good sense of humor. but she was knowledgeable about pizza making and Gelatos. Making pizza with her gave a good perspective in making pizza and above all its a great class with fun and eating your own pizza and Gelato.

    This was a nice little experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and there are good toppings to choose from along with wine to drink. Very easy to talk with the other group members too. Lots of fun. I do wish the gelato aspect was a bit more interactive, all we did was watch one member of the group stir it and got maybe 2 spoonfulls to eat for ourselves.
