This cooking course was pretty good! The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and offered a lot of great information, including the scientific part of making a good pizza dough. The class size was a bit big and it wasn’t as hands on as we were expecting. It was also a mix of adults (us) and kids (other peoples’ kids), which was also not the most exciting. Again the instructor did a good job of balancing both parties and overall we enjoyed ourselves and the pizza we got to eat at the end. If you are looking for something fun to do with your kids, this would be an awesome experience! If you want an adults only evening, I’d recommend going elsewhere!

I’ll start with the positive. Our chef was knowledgeable and my pizza was delicious and one of my favorite meals in Florence but the rest of this class was slightly lacking. Tour and Travel Services SA was the tour operator (we booked via TripAdvisor )and there are many companies offering this so I can only speak to this one. The description was a bit misleading as we did make our dough but that was really the extent of our cooking experience. The sauce and other ingredients were all pre-made/cut. We watched our chef make the gelato as he explained ingredients but there was no hands on experience for us and vote decided on flavor (not the variety advertised). There was an awkward time while cooking pizzas in which we were just given the WiFi password and left at our tables that faced the wall to entertain ourselves. Description said we were to leave with recipes for home but this was never even mentioned or provided. I think there are easy ways to improve this experience to increase the value for money and time. I would do this again but perhaps with a different tour operator.

We came to Florence wanting to come away with a different kind of memory and decided to do a Pizza and Gelato Class. Our Chef was Tiziana and she was fantastic! We now get to leave Florence knowing how to make authentic Italian pizza and gelato at home. She was knowledgeable, fun and friendly and made a great teacher. If you're looking to make a different kind of memory like we were, definitely try a cooking class with Tiziana, it's something we won't ever forget. You'll leave learning two new skills and with a full tummy of pizza and gelato.

We made sausage, salami and mozzarella pizzas and chocolate chip gelato! Both were gorgeous!

Grazie Tiziana!

Informative and entertaining, great for the kids to interact with an authentic Italian chef. Tiziana was fun, and patient with the children. We all enjoyed making our own dinner and desert, not one ‘I’m bored’ for the entire duration of the class! Worth every penny.

Tiziana was an incredible chef and ‘tour guide’ and was very informative, fun and hilarious! She is very passionate about what she does and it was lovely to hear her family stories and experiences surrounding food.
We would highly recommend this tour to others. A very authentic way to spend the afternoon and evening in Florence!

Thank you so much Valentina and Tatiana. We had an afternoon filled with laughter and pizza making. The ladies were so much fun and helped us to create the most delicious food. After the relaxed lesson, with wine, we enjoyed eating our creations. I would recommend this event to anyone visiting Florence. (We were collected from an easy to find central location and driven to the venue which is modern and new).
