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!


**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**

My daughter and I had a great time. We were glued to the whole course from start to end. Overdosed on ice cream. lol Highly recommend the class.

The gelato appreciation class is just as you’d expect from Messina as a brand. The course host Adrian embodied the professionalism, attention to detail and family-like atmosphere of the team. The variety of the class - factory tour, Q&A, stats, actually making some flavours in front of us, making a cake, and a tasting menu of the recipes, was excellent. It’s appreciation of the entire culture of the company and gelato, rather than a 3 hour free ice-cream fest, but that’s a good thing. And you do get a good variety of things to taste, plus a free small tub to take home.

Thank you Messina for opening your doors to us, what a fascinating class! We had a wonderful time filling up on (a whole lot of) delicious treats. The Messina team gets treated like family and even their cows are happy and looked after which was nice to hear. They are very honest and open to sharing their passion for understanding the chemistry of flavour and bringing that to the product. I feel very happy about supporting a great company with my addiction to gelato!
