Returns to original departure point
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.

We had a great time. Very kid friendly! Marco and team were very patient and kind with our 7 year old. She was so excited about experience in the class that I know we’ll do more of these in the future! We walked away (gladly) with the extras they had for purchase.

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!
