Opportunity to handpick your ingredients from the garden
Pizza and gelato cooking class with a professional chef
An enjoyable meal together surrounded by the stunning private estate
Guests will leave the Walkabout centrally located office in via Vinegia 23R together at their allocated time and head straight to the private estate where you’ll find the high-tech kitchen you’ll be using for the day – you’ll feel like a real professional chef!
Once our friendly chefs and guides have all been introduced, you will head out into the estate garden to handpick some of your ingredients to be used during the cooking class. Florence is known for its rich and fertile surroundings, so you’ll quite literally be picking the cream of the crop. One of our guides will passionately talk you through all the produce grown in the garden, so you can learn a thing or two as you prepare to get cooking.
The fun really begins when the group enter the kitchen and start preparing the food. Led by our entertaining and knowledgeable chefs, we can promise this experience is not something you’ll forget in a hurry.
The first step is to prepare the gelato. Choose from a variety of different flavours and create your personal mixture before freezing it to get back to later. The group will then receive an informative introduction to the art of pizza making, the Italian way. Once you’ve learnt the basics, you’ll put your newfound knowledge into practice and start bringing together your very own dough!
Roll up your sleeves, knead, roll and decorate your creation with the toppings picked earlier from the garden. You’ll cook your pizzas in the wood fire oven and enjoy them fresh with a glass of wine.
Good to Know: In this cooking class, Florence’s most popular beverage will be on offer – Chianti Classico Wine.
The gelato making continues with further entertaining instruction from the chefs and a live demonstration with liquid nitrogen. Once the delicious treat is ready you’ll be able to sit back with your fellow guests and enjoy.
Being able to take home your Italian culinary knowledge is one of the many things that guests love about this cooking class. Florence tours rarely offer such intimate, informational experiences, so make sure you’re booked onto this class for your next trip.
