Learn Messina's gelato secret and enjoy 5 courses of gelato
Love Gelato Messina's gelato? Want to find out how it is made, have a sneaky peek behind the scenes and try all 40 Gelato Messina flavours? Then Messina Gelato classes are just what you're looking for.
Gelato Messina is a Melbourne go to for great gelato. Learn more about how Messina's gelato is made and find out what happens behind the scenes at the gelato makers' headquarters at one of its Gelato Classes.
The classes are run every Saturday morning at Messina HQ in Melbourne. Classes are held in both Sydney and Melbourne, with Sydney having both Gelato Appreciation Classes and a new class, Hands On Classes, while Melbourne only has Gelato Appreciation Classes at the moment.
Hopefully the Hands On Classes, which teach you the finer details of how to make gelato the Messina way, and at which participants create and pasteurise their own gelato or sorbet flavour using a Thermomix, will start in Melbourne too soon.
At the Gelato Appreciation Classes you'll learn about the science behind making gelato, as well as learning a few secrets about how Gelato Messina cakes are made from Messina chefs. You'll also get the opportunity to try as many of the 40 flavours in the gelato cabinet as you can.
No gelato appreciation class would be complete without a gelato degustation and Messina is not going to let you leave without devouring some delicious gelato. The class includes a five-course gelato degustation, with each menu being created especially for each class. You also get a tub of gelato to take home.
You can view full details of all that is included in each class and book a class here.
Classes sell out very quickly and the best way to book a date with this delicious gelato and its creators is to sign up to Messina's mailing list. They'll email you when new dates for their classes open up and you'll be able to book as soon as new classes become available.
Take one of Messina's Gelato Appreciation Classes and take your Gelato Messina obsession to even greater heights.
