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 June 2019 • Gelato Appreciation Class (Melbourne)

I find Gelato Messina to consistently be the best Gelato and I wanted to know more about how Gelato Messina make their Gelato. The Gelato Appreciation Class far exceeded my expectations. The class was interesting, full of information and had a great mix of videos and demonstrations. I had no idea how many ingredients need to be in balance for make a great gelato and how much research goes into getting the recipe right. Getting to see gelato being made and taste the product at various stages was great. I learned a lot about the company, their ethos and how they make such consistently good Gelato. I was extremely impressed with the presentation and the quality of Gelato Messina products. I will definitely go to other Gelato Messina events.

This was an incredible experience! Obviously the gelato and desserts were phenomenal, but it was so great to learn so much about the company and development of Messina to be what it is today. It was so clear that passion is what has made it so amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone! (Ps you get to try every single flavour in the cabinet!)
