Pizza and Gelato Making (evening)

Tuscany/Florence

Learn to make Pizza and Gelato just like the Italians do! Join our late afternoon class. Our chefs will be happy to introduce you to the history of these Italian glorious creations!
Make pizza in the oven with our professional pizza chef, which in Italian is called a ‘pizzaiolo’. You will learn how to make tender, flexible dough that stretches to almost paper-thin, and the trick to making a flavorful yet light tomato sauce. These techniques are universal and using them really makes a difference even if you bake pizza in your oven at home.
With the pizzaiolo, you’ll make your very own pizza, stretch the dough, add the sauce, bake it, and slice it. It will be the best pizza you ever tasted because you made it yourself!
The chef will proceed to explain you why gelato remains Italy’s favorite dessert while giving you an insight to the ‘gelato culture’ that continues to grow. You will get to know the basic raw ingredients, how to select the best products available according to specific principles and be given a presentation on tasting 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. It is always a great day when you discover the recipe of the world’s most loved dessert!
This activity is strongly recommended for families that wish to have children learn about Italian culture, an easy and fun experience that will last forever in their memory.
