Budding gelato artists get hands-on experience making creamy confections in the gelateria’s kitchen, mixing candy, fruits, and nuts to create three different flavors such as pumpkin, apple cider, gingerbread, or peppermint. (A different slate of seasonal flavors will be available after the holidays.) Meanwhile, students sip ultrarich hot chocolate made from Mia’s in-house chef.
Each student gets to leave with the gelato they’ve made to share or to place in a bank to accrue interest. Workshops are designed for adults, but children may attend with a parent at the parent’s discretion. Classes are held on weekdays at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and on weekends at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
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.
