during this Florence cooking class. Italians take their food very
seriously, and before you start cooking, you must understand some pizza
basics. Pizza Margherita got its name from Italy’s Queen Margherita, who
in the late 19th century in Naples was served a pizza resembling the
Italian flag – red tomatoes, white mozzarella and green basil. The
beloved Italian pizza as we know it today was born.
Today, Italians make variety of pizzas from different regions. While toppings and cheeses may vary from region to region, the culinary rule of using fresh, local ingredients remains the same throughout the country. This cooking class will give you the opportunity to create and bake your own Italian pizza.
Then it’s on to dessert, as you learn how to make authentic Italian gelato. While similar to ice cream found elsewhere in the world, gelato does have some differences, including a generally lower butterfat content and a freezing process that creates a denser, more flavorful product. During the cooking class, you will learn the process of making gelato, tasting the creations as you go.
As you are guided through the stages of both pizza- and gelato-making with a professional chef, you’ll learn valuable tips and hints that you can take home for future cooking. Impress your friends after your trip with your newfound Italian cooking skills!
