Gelato Messina’s Creative Department is taking its seven-course degustation on tour to Brisbane.

The food is a combination of recent Sydney and Melbourne Messina degustation menus, which revolved around the Australian black truffle with a series of sweet, savoury and umami dishes. The Brisbane menu will include one special truffle dish.

The experience is designed to be experimental and at times confronting – “It borders on dessert but the brave might call this a meal,” Messina says in a news release – and comes paired with complementary drinks and liquids.

The menu runs across numerous sessions at Messina’s South Brisbane store from August 31 until September 9. Limited spots are available.
