As the warmth of summer arrives, it's time to cool off with some home made ice cream - so let’s make some Italian gelato! In this class, you’ll learn all about gelato and the core principles it takes to make a great gelato.

Charlie Douglass, former master chocolatier at Harry & David, will dive into how to create a chocolate dipped gelato pop, and demonstrate how to make Baci di Dama, a delightful hazelnut shortbread sandwich cookie with a Nutella-like filling. Recipes will be provided for Gelato and Baci di Dama, and you’ll learn about dipping and layering chocolate as well. Bring your sweet tooth and a healthy dose of curiosity!
