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). Please be at the meeting point 15 minutes before the tour starting time.

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.

Our instructor was great and very accommodating although we arrived 5 mins late with kids. Our 5 yr twins were entertained for the whole 3 hours, this means really something as it’s very hard to keep them entertained. It was a great cultural experience for us. The class is perfect to get to know some cooking secrets:)) Thank you.

So much fun! We were with two 18-year old boys who were tiring of museums and walking tours. Tomas and Niccole gave them a fantastic experience learning how to make pizza and gelato. Much more educational and interesting than just a cooking class, I feel like a learned a good amount of Italian culture. Plus, eating your own pizza at the end is a treat! We strongly advise the tour operator gets an Amazon affiliate link to a gelato maker, as we were all searching for one to buy after the experience! I would definitely do this experience again!

This was a fun activity to do with our two teenagers. It was also a nice break from all the walking in the heat! The two chefs were fun and good at walking us all through the steps. The pizza and gelato turned out great.

We had a really wonderful time during this cooking class. I loved that it was on the shorter side so we could do other stuff during the day. Caterina was our chef and she was delightful! She told us about her background with cooking and connected it with her family. The pizza and gelato were DELICIOUS!

This class was awesome!! My husband and I did it together and this was our first time doing something like this and won’t be our last! We had a great time. The pizza was great and so was the gelato. However, they just show how to make the gelato you do not actually make it just an FYI but you still get to eat it so that was good enough for us!

Went to to this cooking class today and had a great time with delicious selfmade pizza and chocolate icecream. Meeting point easy to find via Google Maps and message upfront via Viator app, it's the address of the cooking school. Great atmosphere, we were the only Dutchies today in a group of other pizza 'students' from the US. Travelling with two little children can be a hassle, but the blond lady chef who entertained our baby daughter (who was getting fussy, 9 months old) was a godsend 🤗 We could focus on making pizza dough with our 3,5 year old son, who was (to our surprise) very interested and impressed by teacher Tomas and the chefs team. Thank you once again!

Chef was very good but we didn't get the recipe so hoping he emails them as he said he would. Can't wait to make it at home
