MESSINA CLASSES 2014
For anyone interested in finding out what goes on behind the scenes at Messina, we will be holding our ‘Gelato Appreciation Classes’ approx. every 2 weeks from MID JAN 2014. Part gelato making class, part info session, part science lesson, and part gelato degustation, it’s a slightly different concept to previous years and will include a visit to our Rozelle factory as well as our flagship Darlinghurst stores. By visiting our production epicentre, you’ll get to see what goes on behind the scenes and we’ll let you in on a few of our gelato secrets..
In a nut shell, we meet at our Darlinghurst store at 9am for coffee, before being driven by bus to our Rozelle site. On the bus, you’ll get a quick intro into our business, get a little history of how it came to be, our philosophy, and what it is about Messina that makes us a little different to other gelato pushers.
Once we hit the factory we’ll prepare and churn 2 flavours (maybe more) and explain the process and recipes whilst we churn.. After that, we eat it. We indulge in a mini gelato degustation session throughout which includes some pretty way out creations that will make you scratch your head at times! We’ll make one of our specialty gelato cakes, explain the technique behind it, and give you some insight into how we construct such delights at sub zero temps.. (which again, you get to eat)..
When class is over, the gluttony really begins with our bus taking you back to Darlinghurst for a tasting session where get to try as many flavours in the cabinet as you can handle.. Time permitting, you’ll get through up to 40 flavours.. At the end, we roll you out with a tub of gelato and a copy of our new book ‘Gelato Messina – The Recipes’ so you can go home and really do a number on yourself!
Classes start at 9.00AM, and go till 12 midday (approx) on a Saturday morning.
Online bookings can be made BELOW
