MESSINA: THE RECIPIES

MESSINA: THE RECEPIES

Here at Gelato Messina, we really love gelato. We love it so much, we have a small shrine in our homes to which we must bow. What we love even more however is sharing this love of gelato with others. This is what inspired us to write our first book. In our book we have included over 40 of our flavours including some of our favourite signature flavours such as salted caramel and white chocolate.

With a few simple and inexpensive kitchen appliances, the book will show you how you can make gelato in your own home just like the professionals !

TRUE BLOOD – THE HEART..

TRUE BLOOD – THE HEART IS HERE!

To celebrate the launch of –
True Blood: The Complete Fifth Season
we were asked to come up with a suitably blood-drenched, vampire delicacy..

We knew there had to be blood and lashings of it.. so we created a burnt caramel & pear gelato heart with a centre oozing with blood plum syrup. When you buy this little sucker of a kit, you get to inject the liquid blood into a 70% fleur de cao (barry callebaut) chocolate shell at the centre of the heart, which sits upon a white chocolate and malt feuilletine base. Once filled, rip it open and let the feeding frenzy begin.

its $28 and is available in store only from our Creative Department in Darlinghurst (no pre-orders).. It’s super limited so be quick.. seriously, its killer..

THE MESSINA-MILLAR PROJECT 2013

Late last year we received an email from a 2012 MasterChef finalist by the name of Kylie Millar, asking if she could come and do some ‘work experience’ with us..

To which we replied – ‘Aren’t you the chic that split the parfait mixture whilst making Guillaume’s Nougat Glace dessert which ultimately lead to your tragic departure from the show?’ Apparently, this was the very same Kylie. How embarrassing..

A conundrum unfolded.. How could we possibly take on someone that had ‘gone out’ on a dessert? Was she out of her mind? What would the public think?
