We make gelato, it's pretty good.

At Gelato Messina our job is to make people happy. Yes we make amazing gelato with the very best, real ingredients. And yes our gelato cakes are weird and wonderful, but it’s all in the name of putting a smile on someone’s face.

We’re passionate (verging on obsessive) about the creative process. Whether it’s coming up with new flavours or a music playlist for the stores, we throw ourselves into it because that’s what we love.

How would they have made it 100 years ago?

When we make gelato at Messina, we ask ourselves one simple question: “How would they have made it 100 years ago?” The answer is simple – use ingredients in their raw and most natural form and make everything from scratch. ‘Ready made’ ingredients including colourings, flavourings, preservatives and pastes have no place at Messina.

From the meticulous roasting and endless grind of pistachios, to the baking of our own apple pies and brownies, or to the sweet smell of stewed spiced rhubarb, absolutely everything is made lovingly in-house by our little team of mad professors. By using real ingredients, we achieve full bodied texture and flavour in our gelato. Our dairy flavours have low fat content because we use less cream, and our sorbets are completely fat free, dairy free and full of fruit.

19 September 2020 • Gelato Appreciation Class (Sydney)

From start to finish, this class was amazing. Learning the ins and outs of the Messina process made us really understand the amount of hard work, creativity, and science that goes into creating some of the best gelato around. You also get to try some amazing gelato creations, as well as enjoy flavours made right in front of you. Alessandro and Adrian were fantastic hosts, their enthusiasm and knowledge was incredible. The only piece of advice I'll offer is to not eat before, as you will likely need to be rolled out after the class!
