Florence Cooking Classes by Florencetown , Via Panicale, 43/r, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy

Florencetown cooking school is located in Via Panicale 43red (close to Central Market)

This activity will end right where it started.
Learn how to make two of Italy's most popular and delicious foods during this Florence cooking class.

As you get started with your chef, learn about the history of pizza-making in Italy, and the distinct characteristics between pies from each Italian region. Sample an array of pizza flavors as you go and then throw your own creation in the oven to bake.

Continue with a lesson in dessert, as you receive instruction on crafting traditional Italian gelato. While this sweet treat does share similarities to ice cream found in other countries, it typically has a lower amount of butterfat and a unique freezing process that accounts for its dense, flavorful consistency. As your instructor shows you the secrets of the trade, enjoy plenty of samples to satisfy your sweet tooth.

After your class concludes, take home your insider’s tips from your chef to impress your friends in the kitchen.

What an amazing evening!! We were lucky enough to travel during the slow part of the year and have a very intimate class. David was our host and he did an amazing job. The pizza, gelato and overall experience were off the charts. Would highly recommend.

Relaxing, fun, informative class. We got to do some Pizza from scratch, get loads of information on gelato. Our host Caterina was just perfect, she is a very good communicator and fun to hang out with. At the end of the class we had some dinner with some nice red wine and got to talk a little bit with other guests sharing stories and having fun. For us it was a really good way to finish our day. Thank you

This is a great experience for anyone travelling in Italy who is probably eating a lot of both pizza and gelato and is interested in learning more about both. The host explained the history of both foods, and also the difference between actual gelato and ice cream, which is also sold in Italy under the same name. At the end I was able to eat my pizza which was actually very good, thanks to the host helping me out a few times. I appreciate that he made sure I didn't end up with an inedible mess when everyone else was eating their pizzas. This class is located in a small culinary school which was slightly hard to find, at least compared to most touristy things in Florence, so I would recommend giving yourself some time to find it.

This class was so much fun! The facility was perfect for a cooking class, and our instructor was gave us clear and concise instructions. She also shared the importance of the food culture in Italy, which is exactly what I was looking for. I especially loved her stories of her mother's gelatteria in Sicily. This tour was a highlight of our time in Florence!

Delicious pizza!

Super fun making pizza. Chefs were excellent. Class is more entertainment than a ‘cooking’ class. And there can be a lot of children. I learned a lot — just found it less fun because of the focus on children versus learning to cook.
