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!

Strongly recommend this class - I love gelato - but came away with an new appreciation for the creation of this amazing desert/treat. Do you know what gives you brain freeze?? I do now. I also understand the role of Jersey cows, fresh strawberries and so much more. Lessons while you eat and sample - make sure you come with an empty stomach! Take away gift as well - best Saturday I have had for a long time.

Really enjoyed this class, the presenters were engaging and humorous, I learnt a lot and tried many new flavours and toppings I wouldn’t have tasted otherwise. Great value with so much to eat and the recipe book to take home.

Great morning, something different that was worth it. Everything done and explained well. Great three course menu that delivered more than expected. Staff members knowledge was amazing. Great present to get someone that likes Messina. 5/5 Some suggestions, more pictures when taking about the history of Messena, show us the old logo and a photo of the first stores and all the people that were there at the start. Also while making the gelato and the cake, a birds eyes camera that was on the TV would have allowed me to see better at the back.
