Try listing among the best traits of Italy. Well, these certainly include pizza, gelato and the gorgeous landscapes of the Tuscan countryside! Combine your love of fragrant pizza and creamy gelato with a unique pizza cooking class in Tuscany, held in an authentic farmhouse.
A pleasant 25 min. drive aboard our comfortable minivan will take you to the peace and quiet of the rolling countryside, and the charming farmhouse where you will have your cooking class. Meet your friendly dedicated chef, follow him to see our organic vegetable garden, and learn about the best of the fresh veggies and fragrant Tuscan herbs. And onto the charming country kitchen, where shiny marble tabletops are ready with equipment and ingredients.
Follow your chef's skilled know-how, learn the secrets which lie behind picture-perfect scrumptious Pizza. He'll show you how to make pliable paper-thin yeast dough, and give you tips on how to prepare a zesty yet light tomato sauce to top it with.
Aprons on, it's your turn to get your hands floury measuring and mixing the ingredients, and to knead your dough to perfection! While it rests enjoy the chance to learn about Italian gelato, its history and heritage, and get an insider's view on how home-made gelato is made.
And then time for delightful fun: roll out your pizza, season and flavor it to taste! Once ready raise it with the flat pizza-shovel and slide it into the oven, let it bake savoring the fragrant scents and finally relish the unique taste of the the best Pizza you've ever had: the one you made yourself!
Dinner will include excellent Chianti wine and delicious gelato too! Traveling back after dinner enjoy a spectacular view of Florence: by night it lights up with myriads of shining lights which enhance the towers and landmarks. At the end of the experience receive an Attendance Certificate and a Recipe Booklet, to share the recipes you learned with your friends and family once back home.
Entertaining, instructive and easygoing. Our Gelato and Pizza Cooking Class in Tuscany is perfect for families seeking an activity where their children can learn about local culture in a fun and relaxed way.
