Gelato Messina Is Opening a One-Day Pop-Up Pie Shop

Get Messina's next savoury project in your pie-hole.

While Messina's main jam is crafting supremely scoffable varieties of gelato, the brand's love of food extends far beyond the freezer, as proven through a series of pop-ups it's dubbed Messina Eats.

Every couple of months, the cult gelateria teams up with a savoury-focused culinary hero and throws a big ol' food party in the carpark at its Rosebery headquarters. On March 18, however, Messina's flying solo for its Pie Country pop-up, plating up both sweet and savoury iterations of that flaky favourite: the pie.

On the menu, executive head chef Tom flaunts his passion for pies with a range that includes a nacho-style combo of chilli con carne, guacamole, corn chips, sour cream, and jalapenos. There's also one filled with slow-cooked Nepalese chicken curry and topped with mushy peas and mashed potato.

Of course, the dessert game will be as strong as ever, with deep-fried apple pie, vanilla soft serve, and a salted caramel and coffee version of Messina Milk, all on offer.

Messina Eats: Pie Country kicks off at 12pm this Saturday, March 18, at Gelato Messina HQ, 58 Mentmore Avenue, Rosebery. It runs until all those pies have sold out.
