Private Gelato and Biscotti Cooking Class

Local Product
1:30 Hours
Professional Chef
Italian and English

Book a private afternoon cooking class in one of MaMa Florence's beautiful kitchens - learn to make Italian Gelato and Biscotti with a Professional Chef.

Gelato is the original Italian ice cream, with a long and fascinating history from iced fruit to modern day commercial gelato. However, great Italian gelato is not as complicated as it might seem.

Your chef will show you the importance of fresh, seasonal ingredients as your base and then you will create the gelato together, adding milk, cream, eggs and sugar in varying degrees or perhaps creating a fruit sorbet that is lactose-free.

Your chef will explain the importance of avoiding chemicals during the process and also include unexpected ingredients like balsamic vinegar or farm fresh yogurt.

And no afternoon gelato break would be complete without some biscuits! Together with the chefs, you will also learn to make typical Italian biscuits.

This class is perfect for children, teens and families in general. And the delicious combo of gelato and biscotti is sure to be a huge hit with even the pickiest eater.
