Learn to make Pizza & Gelato

Learn to make pizza and gelato just like the Italians do! This chef-led class will introduce you to the history of these glorious Italian creations before you enjoy a dinner of the delicacies that you've just prepared.

With a professional pizza chef (known as a pizzaiolo) showing you the way, you will learn how to bake incredibly tasty pizzas before moving on to the mouth-watering world of ice cream.

Let's start with the main: discover how to make tender, flexible yeast dough that stretches to almost paper-thinness, as well as the trick for a flavourful-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 the savoury course, it’s time to discover the secrets of the world's most-loved dessert! Your chef will explain why gelato remains Italy's favorite dessert while giving an insight into the gelato culture that continues to grow.

Finally, enjoy a presentation and tasting of many of the flavours used in gelato making. You will learn about the development and application of natural colours, heating and freezing techniques and their effects on different ingredients.
