Your trip to Bologna will not be complete without a day spent at the Ice Cream School. University lessons are the furthest thing from your mind when you are on holiday but this one is one that you want to attend. Have you ever wondered how to make your own ice cream? Or how to make gelato treats at home that will leave friends and family in awe? You can do that if you spend some time at Gelato University.
Students can book day lessons – you can learn the basics of ice cream and gelato making over a course or 2 or 4 hours. If you are more serious you can book 3 day courses where the chef will train a maximum of 6 people, but if you feel you would like o study some more you can pay for an additional 2 days. Be careful though – chefs will only take 3 students for the additional time spent on the course so you should make your bookings early.
There are some who attend Gelato University for a few months and emerge as masters in their crafts. They learn from the best in the profession. Classes involve step by step instruction and there are a lot of practical demonstrations and practice sessions where they get one-on-one instruction. The university provides accommodation but it is limited so it is best to make your bookings early.
For day visitors there is a museum where you can learn what gelato is, the different types, its history and more. And what is a visit to Gelato University of you cannot buy the stuff and tantalize your taste buds?
