Pizza Making @ Grosvenor Hotel
Foodie Partners: John
Back in February, I received an email from the lovely Julia from Tink PR to attend a Bloggers Pizza Making Competition. Sadly I declined the offer due to the busy schedule I was running on at that time. After my fellow bloggers published their posts on the event, I was beating myself up for not attending it! 8 months later, I received an email from Julia’s assistant asking whether I would like to attend a Pizza Making class with a friend at The Grosvenor Hotel on Saturday morning. I jumped onto the opportunity immediately and invited my colleague John to come along.
The day before the pizza making class, I said to John “Don’t be late! OR ELSE”, and he arrived promptly. Ironically, I ended up running half an hour late no thanks to Hoddle St!
When I arrived, Paul gave John and I a tour around Grosvenor Hotel. He showed us the fresh and quality produce that they have sourced, including produce that have been imported from Italy.
“Paul, can I take a photo of you with the dry aged beef?! I’ll make you look good with the meat!”
At the conclusion of the tour, we went to the kitchen for the pizza making class. We were shown the way of making pizza by Andrea, who has extensive pizza making experience stemming back from Italy.
Rather than taking photos, I decided to film some footage to share with everyone. Check out the youtube video below! If you like my videos, make sure you like and subscribe for more videos in the future :)
It was definitely a valuable experience – seeing how proper pizza is made using the freshest and highest quality ingredients.
The first pizza made during the pizza making class was a simple yet delicious prosciutto & buffalo cheese pizza. The other pizza made by Andrea was the gluten free base pizza that had pumpkin, artichoke, mushrooms and capsicums. A great pizza for those who are health conscious.
After we were taught how to make the pizzas, both John and I had a try on making our own pizza and designing our own pizza toppings. John chose olives, salami, mushrooms and cheese pizza, whilst I made a cheese pizza which consists of blue cheese, fior di latte, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. The sharp taste of the blue cheese was the perfect accompaniment to the tomato sauce base!
At the conclusion of our pizza making class, John and I sat outside with a glass of white wine and our pizzas!
Do you want to learn how to make pizza?! Well… The Grosvenor Hotel are now conducting pizza making classes to the public on the third Saturday of each month at 10.30AM. Trust me it’s worth getting up early on a Saturday!
