If you haven't yet had a chance to check out Gelato Messina's Creative Department, then this July is the perfect time to do so. The gelato fiends are adding truffles to all their dishes for a series of special, seasonal dinners.

In conjunction with Parkesbourne Produce, Messina is crafting a special eight-course gelato-meets-gourmet mushrooms degustation running for just ten days, held in a private room behind the Messina Windsor store.

So what kind of truffle-gelato goodness have the masterminds come up with this time around? Expect brioche and foie gras gelato with black truffle sauce; pistachio and black truffle gelato with matcha and white chocolate fudge; and grilled kumquat sorbet with koji cream, wattleseed and black truffle.

You'll also be trying an equally creative range of non-alcoholic drinks, including the likes of a lemon myrtle and macadamia bubble tea and the pineapple, white soy and shiitake sparkling.

Tickets are $160 per person and, based off how quick these things sell out around the country, you'll want to grab your tickets ASAP.
