Description

Book one of our Gelato Appreciation Classes and join us for part gelato making class, part info session, part science lesson, and part gelato degustation with our chefs. By visiting our new Brisbane store, you’ll get to see what goes on behind the scenes, meet our chefs and we’ll let you in on a few of our gelato secrets.

WHAT HAPPENS:

  • You'll head straight to our South Brisbane Store ready for appreciating a lot of gelato
  • We’ll tell you the Messina story, a little history about us, how we got into the gelato business and what makes us a little different to other gelato pushers.
  • Now it gets good – our chefs will show you HOW WE MAKE OUR GELATO while letting you in on some Messina secrets about how we make our gelato taste so good. And of course…you get to try everything they make.
  • During the class you will be served a 4 course GELATO DEGUSTATION – a menu created especially for each class. We like to get creative, so these are pretty special – you won’t get to try them anywhere else!
  • Next, one of our dashing pastry chefs will show you how we make a GELATO CAKE, and yes – you guessed it, you get to eat it!
  • When class is over, the gluttony really begins when you’ll get free reign of our gelato cabinets. You can try as many flavours in the cabinet as you can handle – time permitting, see if you can get through all 40 flavours.
  • At the end, we roll you out with a tub of gelato to take home so you can go home and really do a number on yourself!

PRETTY SURE YOU SHOULDN’T EAT BREKKIE. GO AHEAD IF YOU THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT.

**Allergies - we're afraid we can't cater for specific allergies at our classes - feel free to let us know in your booking, and we'll do our best to accomodate, but it can't be guaranteed**

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.

10 May 2017 • Gelato Appreciation Class (Brisbane)

It was a really interesting and fun way to spend a Saturday morning, and a real privilege to meet both Donato and Alessandro, part of the original Messina "family" and hear the personal story behind the birth of Messina. It was also interesting to hear that Messina will be supplying milk for its gelato from its own Guernsey cow dairy farm. Other things that amazed me were the sheer volumes involved...ie. tonnes of milk, and how the mixture is all made centrally in vast quantities to maintain the quality and consistency and shipped to the various stores in the "baggies" for churning, another surprise was that Messina has a dedicated pastry chef with a team that makes EVERYTHING in their gelato...all the pastries, cakes, brownies and other bits that get smooshed into the gelato... nothing is brought in...and each flavour is started from scratch with no bases. While all the desserts on the menu were great, I particularly liked Donato's smoked gelato (I think it should definitely make an appearance as a special flavour) I also enjoyed being able to try the gelato mix BEFORE it was churned and then again afterwards to see the transformation. Messina Brisbane was definitely worth waiting for.
