Before gelato, cones were only filled with cheerleading chants and an overwhelming sense of responsibility for organizing traffic. Enjoy a conical dessert with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $55 for a gelato-making package for one (up to a $120 value)
- $93 for a gelato-making package for two (up to a $240 value)
The gelato-making package includes the following for each person:
- A two-hour gelato-making class
- 4 pints of gelato each
During two-hour classes, budding participants of all ages learn gelato-making basics and create four culinary combinations of their own. After tutorials, students fill immersion blenders with cream and other ingredients such as nuts, chocolate, and whiskey. Each gelato flavor molds delicately into pints to take home and share with friends or withhold from neighborhood schoolchildren. During the months of January and February the gelateria features the seasonal holiday flavors of pumpkin spice and apple cider.
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.
