Full description
Learn how to make pizza and gelato just like the Italians! In this late afternoon class, your chef will introduce you to the history of these most delicious of Italian creations.

With a professional pizza chef, you will bake a pizza called pizzaiolo. Learn how to make tender, flexible yeast dough that stretches to almost paper-thinness, as well as 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. Make your very own pizza - stretch it, sauce it, bake it, slice it. This will be the best pizza you ever tasted, and you made it yourself!

After pizza, it’s time for gelato. Your chef will explain why gelato remains Italy's favorite dessert while giving an insight into the gelato culture that continues to grow. Learn about the raw ingredients used for bases and about principles for selecting the best products available. Then, enjoy a presentation and tasting of many of the flavors used in gelato making. You will learn about the development and application of natural colors, heating and freezing techniques and their effects on different ingredients. Discover the secrets of the world's most-loved dessert!

This activity is strongly recommended for families that wish to teach their children about Italian culture. This easy and fun experience will last forever in your child's memory.
