Tour description provided by Viator

Learn how to make tiramisu, a classic Italian dessert, during a 2-hour demonstration in Florence. With a local host who’s passionate about all things sweet, you'll discover tips and techniques on how to make your own version of this wickedly indulgent treat. Sample key ingredients; help out with the preparation and cooking; and, best of all, sit down and enjoy your delectable creation!

Limited to 12 people to enjoy personal attention on this small-group.

Your 2-hour cooking demonstration takes place in a private room at a Florentine home, and includes all utensils and equipment. Under the careful eye of your expert host, discover the culinary secrets behind making authentic tiramisu dessert, a traditional Italian dessert.

Meaning 'pick-me-up' in Italian, tiramisu is a boozy, indulgent and much-loved dolce (sweet) dish made by layering liqueur- and coffee-laced sponge cake with cocoa and sweet mascarpone cheese. This distinctive dessert is recognized all around the world, yet even in its birthplace, Italy, no tiramisu recipe is ever exactly the same.

As you watch your host make a version of tiramisu, you'll learn how to create a light sponge and discover how to use flavor combinations -- like chocolate and even coconut -- to achieve deliciously different results. Coffee is always a key ingredient, so you'll try three different types that are commonly used: mocha, espresso and americano.

During the demonstration, you'll have chance to hone your tiramisu-making skills by helping the host, should you wish. Whether you actively participate or choose to simply sit back and watch, you’ll get to sit down with your group at the end and enjoy this classic dessert with your choice of tea, coffee or cappuccino. With this class under your belt, you’ll be able to easily make your own tiramisu again at home to impress your family and friends.
