Today, Italians make variety of pizzas from different regions. While toppings and cheeses may vary from region to region, the culinary rule of using fresh, local ingredients remains the same throughout the country. This cooking class will give you the opportunity to create and bake your own Italian pizza.
Then it’s on to dessert, as you learn how to make authentic Italian gelato. While similar to ice cream found elsewhere in the world, gelato does have some differences, including a generally lower butterfat content and a freezing process that creates a denser, more flavorful product. During the cooking class, you will learn the process of making gelato, tasting the creations as you go.
As you are guided through the stages of both pizza- and gelato-making with a professional chef, you’ll learn valuable tips and hints that you can take home for future cooking. Impress your friends after your trip with your newfound Italian cooking skills!

I was travelling in Italy with my 9 year old son and this was one of the highlights of our trip. The instructors were helpful and entertaining and they made a point to include everyone. We were in a class of about 20 people (including about 7-8 children) and each person had his own work station. First the chef demonstrated and explained the techniques very clearly as we watched and then walked around as we followed his steps. There were 2 instructors - one did the pizza instruction and the other did the gelato instruction. They both helped during the "hands-on" part. Each person made a pizza but the gelato was a whole group demonstration since it has to be made in a larger batch. After the "work" was done we ate together and got to know each other a little. It was an informal atmosphere and an enjoyable evening.

This was a really fun evening. I was a solo traveler and my fellow attendees made this a great evening. Learning about the pizza and gelato was great too. The presenters were fun and easy to talk to.
