When it was finally my turn, I was a little nervous at the thought of throwing my pizza in the air, but finally decided to try it, why not. It's not like I'll get that chance again soon right? It turns out, I may have the Italian chef gene as I did pretty good for a first timer. I managed to throw it up in the air and not drop it, then added sauce, cheese, olives (yum!) and basil and some kind of leaf that I was told was really good and it was. Then into the wood burning oven it went for about three minutes and an eternity later it was ready to eat. Just in time as I had not had lunch that day and was starving.
The whole group sat together to eat the best pizza we had ever had. I admit that I might be biased because I made it myself with a lot of love, but it is truly the best pizza I have ever tasted.
And then, right when I thought it could not get better, they announced that they would put all the gelato out on a table and we would get to try all of them with every king of toping you can imagine including balsamic vinegar, lavender flowers, basil, nuts, grated chocolate, etc. I tried the strawberry, pistachios, vanilla, raspberry, lemon, had double helpings of our chocolate gelato and went for seconds. Needless to say, I wasn't hungry anymore way before I stopped eating. And surprisingly, other than our chocolate gelato, my favorite was strawberry with some balsamic vinegar. It seems disgusting, but trust me it is the most delicious mix ever.
If you have the time while in Florence, I definitely suggest trying a cooking class. I had so much fun and would do it again in a heartbeat.
