Learn how to make gelato

There’s ice cream, then there’s gelato, the best ice cream in the world. When you taste it you’ll understand why: the difference couldn’t be more huge.

We’re proud to team up with Rome Cooking Workshops to present a class that teaches you to make one of the most loved desserts in Italy – and the world – using artisan techniques and fresh ingredients. And then eat it!

Making gelato introduces you to the history of Rome

Frozen treats have been around since the days of the emperors. Our friendly and professional gelato artisan uses traditional techniques, and is from one of the best gelaterias in the heart of Rome. This is the perfect  activity is perfect for your family and gelato lovers alike. 

What’s in the class?

You’ll meet our gelato ‘maestro’ who will teach you the ins and outs of how to make Italy’s favorite dessert. The class begins with an introduction to the concept of ice cream itself – sherbet, sorbet, and gelato itself, and how ice creams differ around the world.

You will then learn how to make gelato from scratch using the freshest ingredients, led by our Gelato master. At the end of the class  you’ll be able to taste samples of your own creations, as well as other gelato flavors at a gelateria.
