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**

The most awesome experience! From kitchen tours to learning about the gelato process, we ate ourselves silly and enjoyed every moment! Definitely worth it ☺️

Absolutely amazing insight into the world of Messina and their fantastic products! Not only was there amazing food (the taste of freshly churned strawberry sorbet has changed my life) but we were all given a tour of the mechanical heart of the company. I loved seeing how everything worked and getting the explanation for why, what stage and how much each invaluable piece of equipment is used. The class has inspired an even greater love of Gelato Messina after experiencing how down to earth these gelato gods are and the care they give to manufacturing (not just using) high quality Aussie ingredients. Anyone who loves ice cream or Messina should put this class on their to do list.
