Learn the secrets of the pizza making process
During your stay in Sicily you will surely have had the opportunity to taste the dish that has made Italian cuisine famous throughout the world, pizza. Although the ingredients that Italians use to make pizza are the same throughout Italy, each region has its own specific recipe. To give an example, the pizza of Naples in Campania has a high, fluffy crust, while that of Rome is thin and crispier. But you are in Palermo, and here the signature pizza is called "sfincione," which is more like a focaccia, in fact its name means "sponge" due to the texture. The dough is not as fine as that of a traditional round pizza, but it is thicker and contains more crumbs. In this private cooking lesson you will follow step by step the different preparations of this particular pizza, starting from the dough, to the sauce, to baking it in the oven. Get ready to make the best pizza you are going to taste!
Discover how the authentic artisanal gelato is made
As with pizza, when you're in Italy, you can't help but delight your palate with what can be either the refreshing snack that quenches hunger between meals, or the perfect dessert which ends a delicious lunch or dinner. In summer, for Italians, there is no better way to dilute the heat than with creamy homemade gelato. During this private cooking class in Palermo you will not only have the chance to taste it, but you will also see all the steps of its preparation thanks to a live demonstration by our qualified chef.
