Meeting point is in front of Biblioteca Nazionale (National Library) in Piazza dei Cavalleggeri. Look for your guide holding a Walkabout sign.

This activity will end right where it started.
Make your own way to the centrally located office to meet your professional chef-guide before your afternoon or evening tour starts. 

Transfer by minibus to a private estate situated in the hills above Florence. Start your culinary experience with a tasting of a traditional focaccia appetizer accompanied by a glass of Chianti wine. Soak in views of the rolling hills as your instructor shares the backstory of Italy's famous foods: pizza and gelato.

Next your chef-instructor shows you how to make pizza dough, and explains regional variations. After preparing the dough, select the topping ingredients that you like from the assortment of fresh vegetables harvested from the estate gardens. Your pizza is then baked traditional-style in the wood oven. When ready, sit down to enjoy your pizza accompanied by wine or beer.

For dessert, learn to make a creamy gelato that can be accompanied by toppings and sauces. Your instructor provides recipes for the pizza and gelato so that you can make them at home.

Your culinary experience ends with a return trip to your starting point in Florence.

The best Florence cooking class!! Chris, Luigi, and Thomas made this a truly unforgettable experience! The pizza and gelato were great, but learning from such knowledgeable and fun individuals and getting to meet other travelers is what really made the experience memorable. And it was a very short and easy trip from Florence to the farmhouse. Definitely make this one of your nighttime activities while in Florence!

Awesome tour, highly recommended for a fun evening. Never thought we could learn pizza and gelato making so easily. Max, Thomas and Luigi were great. Good mix of fun and learning. They take their time to explain the basics and then walk around helping as needed. Never felt rushed to do anything, and they encouraged everyone to take time to get it rights So happy we decided to do this tour !

Monday 09/05/22 - Thank you Max, Thomas, Arla and all the other stuff. Fantastic from start to finish. So much fun and lots of learning. Very inclusive and welcoming. Great value for money (including the food and drink that’s provided - which were delicious!). Transfers to and from also great! Can’t think of anything that could have been better. You must do this if you want to soak up the culture of Tuscany!

All round a very enjoyable experience

After a short bus journey to just past the city limits of Florence, the hosts Luca, Luigi and Max have a drink and little snack (fresh out the wood fired pizza oven) ready for you. At which point you can take in the beautiful scenery around this purpose built set up. The hosts certainly make learning enjoyable for a large age range. A bonus is that for fans of the despicable me films, the Gelato teacher sounds like Gru.
