DELIVEROO EDITIONS…open for business

Deliveroo Editions is open for business…and it’s giving you even more reason to be a lazy b*stard and not leave the couch.

There are no tables or waiters in this restaurant – this is a delivery concept where you literally do sit back, and let us do all the work.

Inside the mystical Deliveroo Editions kitchen (the first site is in Windsor, Melbourne) are some some mouth watering morsels from 8Bit, Baby & Kong ready for order. We’ve made five handmade custom products ready for order too – add them to your savoury food order or just order Messina for dinner. No judgement.

ORDER HERE *you must be in the delivery area

** PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: FROM WEDNESDAY 29TH NOV, the good people of Deliveroo are giving away Messina items with the first 1000 savoury orders. First come, happiest diners**

An a-moozing pop-up with Deliveroo: MESSINA MILK

“If you need lots of milk, buy lots of cows” said the someone in the Messina office in 2016.

A Messina we make all our dairy-based gelato flavours with fresh milk – every.single.messina.flavour gets made from scratch with no pastes or gels in sight. And to do that we get through A LOT of milk – the numbers rack up to approximately 10,000 litres of milk each week which makes around 60,000 scoops for you to eat in store. (All of our sorbets are vegan and dairy free just incase you were wondering).

If you’ve every wondered about the difference between gelato & ice cream – aren’t the just the same thing with different names?? Find out here

Messina Milk

Based on our obsession of making the best product we possibly can, came the next step in the Messina journey…buying our own dairy farm so we can supply our own milk. Based in Numurkah in Country Victoria is Erindale Farm, now home to 270 jersey cows which will soon be ready to supply milk for our gelato. We’re not QUITE ready for that yet – the cows are still in rehearsals and learning their lines, but we have got a very small batch for you to try. And what better to do with milk, than to make choccy milk!

Look no further than Infinity Field, brought to you by those very teal roos at Deliveroo. Ever wanted to try a Messina iced coffee, how about salted caramel milk? In collaboration with Deliveroo we bring you a cool place to take photos which makes you look like you’re in a field somewhere in the depths of Numerkah (note, we know the skies not teal out there, the colours just take amazing selfies) and The Messina Milk Bar.

GOTHIC, GIALLO, GORE: ITALIAN HORROR @GOMA

GOMA ITALIAN HORROR FILM FESTIVAL

We’re thrilled to be a part of a cinema series that’s equally as horrifying as it is Italian. If you’re into gore, horror and viewing rare 35mm prints and digital restorations from some of the most prolific Giallo film producers in history – this is one not to miss out on.

Emerging in the 1960’s & 70’s, this rare Brisbane screening of the Giallo film genre; one of the most alluring forms of European horror, will be shown exclusively at GOMA from 8th September – 1st October.

Which brings me to the box office snacks. It wouldn’t be a GOMA cinema experience without a custom themed gelato offering.  Get ready to chomp on our SMOOTH CRIMINAL: milk chocolate gelato, malted nougat semi freddo & chocolate mud cake covered in Messina dark chocolate.
