Learn how to make authentic, Italian Pizza and Gelato in a Tuscan Villa!
After a 30-minute ride in a comfortable minivan, you will reach the beautiful setting of your cooking class. First, visit the olive oil mill on the premises and learn about the olive oil production process followed by a tasting of the most famous Italian condiment.
Then, under the guidance of a professional pizza chef, called a Pizzaiolo, you will make your own pizza - stretch it, sauce it, bake it, slice it. The chef will teach you the key techniques in making a soft and flexible dough and the trick for a flavorful yet light tomato sauce so you can make this pizza at home!
After pizza it’s time for Gelato. The chef will explain why the gelato is the Italy's favorite dessert and will give insight to the 'gelato culture' that continues to grow. Learn the basic raw ingredients, how to select the best products available according to specific principles, development and application of natural colors, the heating and freezing techniques and how they have different effects on the ingredients.
At the end of the dinner, you'll enjoy a breathtaking view of Florence by night from the top of the Tuscan hills.
Meeting point will be at a central location. Details will be provided in final documents.
