La Macelleria Gelato Degustation Series
Taste your way through multiple types of gelato and sorbet — and take some home with you.
There's no right or wrong way to eat gelato. That said, if you're feeling a bit like you've licked every scoop ever, there is a more interesting way. Sure, you can mosey on in to a gelateria, pick your flavours and dive in — or you can head to one of La Macelleria's gelato degustation sessions.
For an hour across multiple Saturdays — from 3pm on November 14 and 28, plus December 12 — La Macelleria's Matteo Zini will treat your tastebuds to four different flavours, with the theme changing at each session. You'll nab a welcome coffee on arrival, then get some words and wisdom about frosty desserts from Zini, and then get tasting. You'll also receive a 500-millilitre take-home pack of your chosen variety.
Tickets cost $29 for what promises to be a gelato and sorbet adventure. As for what you'll be eating, November 14 is all about summer sorbets (including feijoa, blood orange and cardamom, dragon fruit and lime, and lychee and elderflower), while November 28 is focused on Italian gelato favourites (such as parmigiano reggiano, pesto, Vin Santo and a Sicilian-inspired flavour with ricotta and orange zest). Then, on December 12, Christmas-themed scoops will be on offer (think: eggnog, panettone, pavlova and Christmas pudding).
Only 12 tickets are available per session, so getting in quickly is recommended — a Halloween date on October 31 has already sold out.
