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!

19 September 2020 • Gelato Appreciation Class (Sydney)

From start to finish, this class was amazing. Learning the ins and outs of the Messina process made us really understand the amount of hard work, creativity, and science that goes into creating some of the best gelato around. You also get to try some amazing gelato creations, as well as enjoy flavours made right in front of you. Alessandro and Adrian were fantastic hosts, their enthusiasm and knowledge was incredible. The only piece of advice I'll offer is to not eat before, as you will likely need to be rolled out after the class!

Fantastic way to spend a morning! Very informative and such great desserts to try! We got this experience as a wedding present and we highly recommend!

Messina planned the session out very well - the content was informative and was presented in an entertaining and interactive way, I got to try some really delicious products and I feel motivated and excited in making my own gelato at home!
