Ice Cream
Learn how to make two of Italy's most popular and delicious foods during this Florence cooking class.

As you get started with your chef, learn about the history of pizza-making in Italy, and the distinct characteristics between pies from each Italian region. Sample an array of pizza flavors as you go and then throw your own creation in the oven to bake.

Continue with a lesson in dessert, as you receive instruction on crafting traditional Italian gelato. While this sweet treat does share similarities to ice cream found in other countries, it typically has a lower amount of butterfat and a unique freezing process that accounts for its dense, flavorful consistency. As your instructor shows you the secrets of the trade, enjoy plenty of samples to satisfy your sweet tooth.

After your class concludes, take home your insider’s tips from your chef to impress your friends in the kitchen.

This class was a lot of fun and extremely informational. From talking to the group I was in, to learning about the different ways gelato are made throughout time, to actually being able to make my won pizza, this was great.

A great way to enjoy an evening making pizza and eating gelato. Katarina is an absolutely gem! Recommend to anyone looking for a fun evening in Florence.
Don’t get gelato until you take this class!

This was great and enjoyed by our entire family! Both chefs very friendly, interactive and skilled. It was fun to learn the “secrets” of real gelato and how to find the real deal when in Florence. It is a bit pricey and worth it!
Interesting cookery class

Very friendly, easy going cookery class. First time I’d made pizza and it was edible! Will try again when I get home.
Pizza anyone!

The class was a lot of fun. Learned some great tips on authentic pizza and how to look for good authentic gelato versus not so good gelato. We each made the dough and created individual pizzas with a choice of toppings. As a group, we made gelato. Wine was served with our pizza and gelato. We all received certificates and cookbooks at the end of the class. It was well worth it.
Best night!

Went with my wife and daughter who is studying abroad and had a great time learning how to make pizza & gelato and then enjoy eating it. Alain was a very good host and instructor who shared a lot of tips about cooking and Italians culture. Definitely recommend.
