Italy’s top pizza chefs can recite all the ingredients in a Quattro stagioni while juggling four pizza bases. They do this blind folded and standing on one leg.
Naturally, this takes years of training which starts when the chefs are just three months old.
Mere mortals cannot hope to achieve such culinary flair.
However, take up today’s Big Deal on a pizza-making masterclass at Fanelli’s and you will learn the secrets of creating traditional thin and crisp pizza in just one evening.
Priding itself on serving a classic Italian style menu, Fanelli’s rustic selection is enhanced by the use of locally sourced, seasonal produce.
Highlights include classic Scottish flavours such as haggis, Stornoway black pudding and Arbroath smokies but while Fanelli’s haggis cannelloni will always turn heads, it’s their traditional stone baked pizzas which are the real stars.
With this tasty Big Deal, an experienced chef will guide guests through the intricacies of creating your own pizza.
It’s up to you to try and recreate the magic by following chef’s rolling technique and choosing wisely from the selection of toppings on offer. Once you have done your best, your pizza will be carefully fed in to the oven while you retire to the balcony overlooking the indoor Merchant Square.
Once it’s ready, you will enjoy your masterpizza with garlic bread and a salad while watching the passers-by below.
Classes take place at 6.30pm on Fridays – the perfect start to your weekend. Vouchers for this offer are valid from the first Friday of January to the last Friday in June 2013. They would be ideal as Christmas gift for the budding pizza chef in your life.
