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: learn how to make them (and will walk away with new skills). Class sizes are small, so you 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.
  • Receive personal instruction from a professional Italian chef
  • Enjoy pizza and gelato at the end of class, with wine or soft drinks
  • Take home a recipe booklet to try out your newfound skills
  • Learn about the history of pizza-making across Italy
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 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 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.

So much fun learning how to make pizza and gelato. You get to put your own flavor on the pizza too. Great if you are by yourself, or with a small group.

By strange start, I'll say that the meeting point for this tour was, by the account of our first guide (chef who met us) 10 minutes away. However, after an 18 minute walk (one of my daughters timed it) through the dark and crowded city with 25 people following her, we finally
