On arrival you will be able to appreciate the stunning views over gorgeous countryside as you taste the traditional 'fettunta' and enjoy a glass of Chianti wine whilst listening to the culture behind Italy's most famous food, pizza and gelato.

By this time you will be eager to get hands on. The professional chef will teach you the art of dough making and kneading and will give you all the inside tips in order to easily produce the same result back home where you'll be able to impress your friends and family. You'll learn about the different ways to make pizza depending on the region.

The pizza will be cooked in our wood oven to give it the traditional flavor that will make you feel proud as you sit down and enjoy your pizza with more wine or beer.

The fun continues as you then learn the special techniques to make your very own gelato. You will make creamy gelato with unique toppings/sauces and though you may always want to reproduce these same toppings the chef will make sure you have an adequate understanding in order to be able to experiment at home!

You will leave feeling satisfied, excited and with wonderful memories that you will be able to take home with you!

A Must Do!!


Full disclosure- we packed way too much into a short spring break trip, from Rome to Pompeii to Florence we saw and did and walked and saw some more...

We were greeted with wine, we made pizza, we learned about gelato- we couldn't have had a more fun evening. They have such a nice set-up- a huge kitchen classroom, an outdoor demonstration area and a dining room with views over the whole valley. A ...

Chefs Max and Luca made the experience so fun and amazing. They were knowledgable, helpful and hilarious! I am looking forward to seeing Luca's "tv show" - but in the meantime, I'll follow along with his adventures on Instagram. This is a must do for a couple or family if you are ...
