The frozen foodies at Mia Chef Gelateria sling subzero sweets crafted from more than a thousand recipes, each true to the centuries-old methods of gelato alchemy. During the two-hour workshops, epicurious pupils huddle in the kempt kitchen space to learn the techniques of crafting gelato that first were perfected by Italian forebears, such as how to smoothly meld fresh flavors, use a proper amount of milk, and turn inanimate planks of wood into human children. Amid flurries of instruction, complimentary mugs of decadent italian hot ciocolata concocted by the resident chef warm wintry fingers and steam up eyeglasses for tic-tac-toe breaks. Each student wields newly gained knowledge to fashion three batches of gelato from holiday-inspired flavors such as pumpkin, apple cider, gingerbread, or peppermint, each of which they take home in pint form to share with friends or withhold from neighborhood schoolchildren. Gourmet-gelato kits lade bamboo baskets with all of the special ingredients used in class, so participants can make the glacial dessert at home.

Mia Chef Gelateria

Trays of creamy gelato beckon from beneath glass at Mia Chef Gelateria, a dessert destination that takes pride in its inventive flavors and presentation. Centuries-old traditions and unique ingredients weave together to form a gourmet spread, from sicilian pistachio to spirit-infused fig and tequila to chocolate whiskey truffle. The café bakes its own pastries and brews espresso and coffee from Chicago’s Intelligentsia roasters to accompany the indulgent treats. The gelato masters also share their art in two-hour classes, highlighted in the New York Post as well as the café's family newsletter.

Customer Reviews

We went as a family of 5 and had so much fun making gelato together. It came out really good, we still have pints of it in our freezer as we each got 4 pints to take home!

My friend Monica and I had such a fun afternoon. The gelato was delicious. We got to take home 4 pints each! You should go there - it was really a wonderful experience.

I had a really nice time. Jason, the instructor, was very patient and gave great instruction. The best part was getting to take the gelato home. Definitely a cute thing to do with a partner
