If you haven't yet had a chance to check out Gelato Messina's Creative Department and its gelato-led degustations, then this November is the perfect time to do so. At its Windsor store in Melbourne, the gelato fiends are adding caviar to all their dishes for a series of special, seasonal dinners.
Under the guidance of head chef Remi Talbot, Messina's Creative Department is crafting a special eight-course gelato-meets-salt-cured degustation running for just three days between Friday, November 9 and Sunday, November 11.
So what kind of caviar-gelato goodness have the masterminds come up with this time around? Expect Thai basil and lime granita with lime caviar, picked strawberry and red shiso sorbet with strawberry gum cream and caviar, and roasted almond gelato with potato and brown butter foam. Scampi tarts, lemon myrtle sherbet, soy-cured egg yolk and white garlic gelato are among the other ingredients.
Tickets are $150 per person and, based off how quick these things sell out around the country, you'll want to grab your tickets ASAP.
