What you'll do

The experience has been studied with the aim of involving people as much as we can in the Gelato Making Process.
After an introduction about our background and few secrets about our recipes, we will provide you with aprons, gloves and recipes book.
Instructed by me, you will learn everything about the original ‘gelato bolognese’.
The gelato experience is available for all ages you just need to be a gelato lover.
The experience includes 3 stages:
- Blends preparation: you'll taste our signature gelato flavours then you'll choose which ones you'd like to produce. I'll just follow you in the process, explaining to you how to balance different ingredients, but you'll have the gelato Recipe Book and will be blending yourself​.
- Gelato "Mantecazione": you'll assist on the Gelato making process and I​'ll teach you how to understand when the Gelato is ready to be extracted from the machine, then you'll extract it yourself!
All the guests will taste the Gelato flavour just produced.
- Gelato cake preparation and decoration: Gelato degustation for the guests to choose 2 flavours - our Chefs will teach you how to produce a Gelato cake and you'll produce your own one! After the cake production, we'll provide you toppings and tools to decorate the cake your way. The cake will be a gift for you to take home.

THE EXPERIENCE IS AVAILABLE FOR GROUPS OF AT LEAST 2 PEOPLE.

I'm a Master Gelato Maker from Bologna.
I'm 23 years old and am very passionate about my job - I left my hometown 3 years ago with my best friend​ to join this project and make the business successful​. In Italy it is part of our culture to use Gelato as a dessert for both celebrations and normal dinners. When someone has a dinner at home, the guests also bring two essential things: good wine and authentic Gelato. We created our Gelato recipes ourselves and are very proud of​ it. I am running this workshop as I love getting in touch with passionate people, sharing secrets about our culture and secret recipes, welcoming​ people in the venue I designed myself.

Super fun experience! Jay & Eleonora were wonderful hosts and shared with us their knowledge and passion for gelato. They were extremely patient, polite and really took their time to engage with all participants.

The experience was great! Got to taste alot of gelato; the gelato masters were fun and engaging when telling us how to make the gelatos and gelato cake; and the best part - because we were a group of 3 instead of 2, we got to make a slightly bigger cake 😍.

I booked this experience as a Valentine's present for my boyfriend and it did not disappoint! The cafe was cute and cosy, and the staff greeted us warmly and made us our free hot drink while we waited for the class to start. They were really generous with allowing us to taste the different flavours available to choose the ones for our cake, and ensured that we all had a chance to participate in making the batch of gelato. The ice cream itself was absolutely heavenly (we choose the dark chocolate and pistachio) and came back with a beautiful ice cream cake. Never having been to a class like this before, we thought it was an ideal first experience, and we had a great time!

Great experience for couples or friends or even as an individual. The guys were friendly and really knew their stuff. We learnt a lot, had a great time and took home our own gelato cake. Also great for allergies - the guys take great care around all requirements.

My boyfriend and I visited Unico for an authentic Italian gelato experience. We were offered free hot drinks upon arrival, followed by instructions on what the 2 hour session would entail. The process was technical and thorough, we were allowed to be involved throughout. The best part was definitely the gelato tasting, it was extremely creamy and rich. Also learning about the history of the company/gelato was insightful. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
