Where you'll be

The best place to learn how to make a real homemade gelato is a gelateria with a laboratory, as in this case. Not far from the center of Rome, very close to Termini station, the Verde Pistacchio gelateria s ideal.
Your gelato maker will wait for you inside the Gelateria.

Gioele was a really fantastic host, but we left disappointed as we did not see 3 flavours demonstrated, just the one we made (stracciatella with caramelised almonds and cherry) and we did not get an ice-cream to go home with (my daughters had wanted salted pistachio) , just the melted end of the one we had made. The experience could be improved by adding a history of Italian ice-creams, where they are made, most popular flavours in Italy etc etc. There was not sufficient detail and the course given could take place in 30 mins. It is a great idea but it must deliver what it promises in the description. All the ingredients and machine needed will be explained -- ingredients for the ice-cream base and the ice-cream we were making were explained but more detailed needed on more of the ingredients they used. Demonstration how to make three different flavour - no we did not do this Then you will personally make one ice-cream‘ s flavour with the help of the instructor - yes we made stracciatella with caramelised almonds and cherry.

Our host was awesome. He had good english, and interacted with us a lot. There were some kids in our group and it was fun to see them participate as well as getting to know them.

Experiência muito legal, ela explica tudo direitinho e nos deixou fazer o gelato, que por sinal, é muito bom! Ela nos recebeu muito bem, e conversou tudo em inglês. Uma experiência que com certeza vale!!!
