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 MESSINA HQ, 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.


  • You'll head straight to MESSINA HQ 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 3 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 our Golden 8 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!

I have never eaten that much gelato in one sitting in my life and it was all eaten before midday! I loved learning about how to make gelato but it was a bonus to hear all the amazing stories that make up such a fantastic brand. It really helped that we got lots of tasty treats and bonus take home ice cream. I’d recommend this to anyone who likes the brand and wants to know more about gelato.

I booked this class for my husband's birthday and he loved it. It was great value as he said apart from learning everything there is no know about making ice cream he said he hasn't eaten that many plates of desert and ice cream in one day ever! Has spent almost every day since attempting to make his own ice cream. Every attempt is getting better so it has been a great thing for the kids and I too. Thank you.

What a great way to spend a Saturday morning! As the class name suggests I left with an even greater appreciation for all things Messina. The class teachers were engaging and fun with their many jokes, stories and facts of how the Messina brand has gotten to where it is today. The take home Messina book and .5L gelato tub were a nice addition.
