Messina – the big daddy of gelato – has your gift for the old man covered. It will release a limited supply of hand-rolled chocolate cigars.
The Juan Hernandez Big Smoke package, named after the two Messina chefs who created it (Nelson Hernandez and Juan Camelo), includes cigars in two flavours. The Sugar Daddy is salted caramel and orange gelato with maple syrup honeycomb and whisky cream. Fidel's Fatty is chocolate gelato, rum anglaise and coconut biscuit. Both are rolled in very thin chocolate paper.
A box of four is $39. Messina will be taking pick-up orders from August 31 from Darlinghurst, Parramatta, Miranda and Rosebery locations.
