Italy Cooking Tour

Is there any country more renown for its cuisine than Italy? Probably not. The country that brought you pizza and pasta is a top destination for foodies, and although you may have some idea about what real Italian cuisine is, we can assure you there’s much, much more to discover. As a tourist, you run the risk of spending a lot of time eating in touristy places that don’t exactly feature real Italian food. But with an Italy cooking tour, you’ll learn all about not only REAL Italian food, but how to make it.

First, let’s journey to Tuscany. If you’ve heard of it, maybe you can thank Frances Mayes for writing Under the Tuscan Sun. With a local guide, meet a chef who will teach you the techniques of making pizza and gelato. In Florence, you’ll receive a quick history lesson about both foods before moving on to the actual fun stuff. Learn how to make the original Italian pizza step by step: make some flexible yeast dough, and light but tasty tomato sauce. You’ll learn how to properly stretch the dough, sauce it, and then bake it.

When it comes to making gelato, you must first know the basic raw ingredients, and how to select the best products! Italians take their gelato very seriously, after all. You will learn about how to apply colours, and how to freeze the gelato. These are definitely the kind of skills you want to bring home to your friends.
