What to expect

Join this late afternoon or evening cooking class where professional chefs will introduce you to the history of two glorious Italian creations. Learn to prepare pizza and gelato just like Italians do!

Make pizza together with an experienced pizza chef, a pizzaiolo. You will learn how to make tender, flexible yeast dough that stretches to almost paper-thinness, and even the trick for a flavorful yet light tomato sauce. Even if you bake pizza in your own oven, these techniques are universal and using them really makes a difference. With the pizzaiolo, you’ll make your very own pizza, you’ll stretch it, sauce it, bake it, slice it. It will be the best pizza you ever tasted, and you make it yourself!

The chef will tell you why gelato is Italy's favorite dessert while giving an insight into the 'gelato culture' that continues to evolve. You will get to know the basic raw ingredients, how to select the best products available according to specific principles and you will have a presentation and tasting of 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 good day to discover the recipe for the world's most loved dessert! A booklet with recipes will guide you to cook for your friends once you get back home. And finally, get your certificate of participation! This activity is strongly recommended to families that wish their children to learn about the Italian food culture, an easy and fun experience that will last forever in their memory.
