Description

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.

18 September 2018 • Gelato Appreciation Class (Melbourne)

I cannot recommend this class more - it's brilliant! You learn everything from the sourcing of ingredients and the creation process, all the way to how it's served inside each Messina store. The staff are lovely and are willing to answer any questions you have. The various tastings were absolutely delicious and carefully curated. There was an interesting mix between sweet and savoury gelato which was welcomed by everyone in the class. It's a truly fantastic experience!

It’s a great class where you learn the basics for making gelato plus taste delicious gelato. We were lucky to have one of the family members run the class as they spoke with passion about the business, high product quality and the sustainability direction they were heading in as a company.
