Nothing beats a great tasting Italian gelato when traveling with your family to Rome, especially on a warm sunny summer day.

Meet your private, experienced chef and let him/her give you all the secrets to make the best tasting gelato you will ever eat! In the comfort of a private, cozy kitchen in Rome, follow the instruction of the chef and get ready for some great fun.

The steps are simple: just select the flavor you want to create and then follow the chef’s instructions. From breaking the eggs to adding the perfect amount of sugar and cream, you’ll be eating your own homemade ice cream in no time! Make sure you do it right though, because the art of whipping the cream is a tough one to master!

This 2-hour real Italian gelato making class is something you will easily be able to reproduce at home. We’ll give you the recipe.

Is this a private activity?
It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones participating in this gelato making class, along with your private chef (and assistant).
Do the parents participate?
Of course! Everyone will have to batter the cream to enjoy the gelato at the end. No pain, no gain!
How much gelato will we make?
Gelato needs time to freeze, and the length of the course is not long enough to see everything freeze. So, although you will be making a significant amount of ice cream, you will only taste a small portion.
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
Yes, smaller children are welcome to participate. But it takes some elbow grease to beat the cream, so some steps will not be suitable for smaller children: they will have to pair up with a parent.
Can you make gluten free gelato?
As long as you give us the information beforehand, we will adapt the ingredients to match your food restrictions.
Do we need to bring special material or ingredients?
No. All you need to bring is a big smile and the will to prepare mouthwatering ice cream. We will take care of the rest.
Do we get the recipes of what we prepared?
Of course, we will send you the recipes by email once the gelato class is over.
Will my teenage kids like the activity?
Sure they will! Who does not like ice cream?
