Do you love pizza and gelato, and would you like to learn how to prepare them at home? Enjoy this cooking lesson in the wonderful Tuscan countryside, where a local chef will teach you all the secrets to make your authentic pizza and gelato!
Which are the most glorious Italian culinary creations? Pizza and gelato, of course! Join this learn-and-taste afternoon tour: it's informative, it's entertaining and it finishes up with a delicious Tuscan dinner!
You'll meet the group in downtown Florence. From there, a comfortable minivan will take you out of Florence on a beautiful 25min drive. You'll arrive at a magnificent Renaissance Villa on the hills of the Chianti wine region immersed in olive groves, vineyards and overlooking the city of Florence, Brunelleschi's Dome standing out among the other buildings in view.
You will admire the fascinating cellars of the Villa where, next to wine barrels, you find that a beautiful marble table waiting for you. Your hands are anticipating to get dirty with flour and to hold a rolling pin to stretch your very own pizza.
Everyone will be able to prepare his/her own home-made Pizza from scratch: first, you'll prepare the dough. Then, you'll make your elbows swing as you stretch your own Pizza with the rolling pin. Put your favorite toppings on top: you’ll learn to master the instant magical movement of the pizza peel and load your pizza straight into the oven in the blink of an eye (you’ll scoop it from table to paddle without even moving the toppings!).
While it rests a little while, you'll learn about Gelato (Italian Ice-Cream) making and its origins, and observe a demonstration of home-made gelato preparation.
We guarantee it will be the best Pizza you have ever tasted, and you'll learn how easy it’s to replicate our secret recipe at home! At the end of the dinner, to conclude the wonderful evening, you'll enjoy a breathtaking view of bright and shining Florence by night, from the height of your gentle Tuscan Hill. Then, full and happy, you’ll return to the city in our minivan, holding your well-earned Graduation Certificate!
