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 our new Brisbane store, 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 our South Brisbane Store 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 4 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!

24 April 2021 • Gelato Appreciation Class (Brisbane)

Absolutely loved this class - from the crafted menu, to the teachers and the opportunity to use the gelato machine! It was so much fun! My husband enjoyed learning about Gelato Messina and the cookbook we got to take away will help us use our newly learnt skills at home. Nice small group of 11 made it easy to engage with speakers and not feel too crowded. Great time of the day - felt like we had a private showing of the gelato shop without the interference of the general community. I will definitely be back, and will purchase these classes for friends and family for gifts!

Class was excellent! Very informative & interesting! Great to see Messina is more than just an ice cream factory & doing awesome at producing tbeir own ingredients. Great amount of sampling & tasting provided & all of it was top quality & delicious! Would highly recommend this course to friends & family!!
