We're taking over THE URBAN DAIRY as part of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. And seeing as it's the urban dairy, we thought we would get all experimental with milk. Thanks to our buddies at Meredith Dairy and their be-ewe-tiful sheep, we've made a sheep’s milk ricotta gelato. We've also gone all buff and made buffalo milk yoghurt soft serve drizzled with condensed milk caramel.
The 2016 Festival Hub is a homage to all things dairy. Open for 10 days in Queensbridge Square with a daily rotation of events and menus, we'll be there 9&10 March, plus Big Gay Ice Cream and Pierre's and Hartsyard will all be whipping up things in the dairy.
4 - 6 March Big Gay Ice Cream (USA)
7 - 8 March Pierre's
9 - 10 March Gelato Messina - THAT'S US!
11 - 13 March Hartsyard
