Truffle Gelato Degustation (Gourmet Edition)

6 Loftus St
Sydney NSW 2000

Sunday 7 August from 6pm to 7:30pm


Adult: $52.78

Truffle season urged us to bring the first Zini Gourmet Gelato Degustation to life!

With four innovative gelato recipes that will embody the whole truffle story and take that pungent earthy smell to a sexy place, chef Matteo Zini came up with a sweet truffle spectacle like no other.

This gelato experience is an affordable way to sample such a decadent flavour, and it’s so rich that every scoop is plenty.

Truffles are not a regular item on our daily plate; these beauties have a price tag to match their scarcity! So, chef Matteo Zini thought: "how can we give people a taste of these truffles without forcing them to remortgage a property?".

The answer lay in our area of expertise: ♥ GELATO ♥.

Combining the two, we created this gourmet experience to let people sample these sensitive little things in four exclusive gelato recipes for an affordable price. Are you coming?

LIMITED TO 12 ATTENDEES ONLY. Get your ticket before they all go!

What you’ll get:

  • A Zini specialty coffee on arrival.

  • Learn about the story of gelato with our founder and gelato chef Matteo Zini.

  • Familiarise yourself with our four unique flavours featured in this degustation.

  • Then, take home a 500ml gelato tub with the four flavours featured in this degustation.


Custard Yolky Gelato with Truffle Shavings

This recipe was inspired by how people eat truffles in Piedmont, the Italian land of truffles: simply shaving fresh truffles on top of egg yolk. So, this is an egg yolk-based gelato with an abundant amount of fresh truffles, salt and pepper.

Mushrooms Gelato with Truffle Oil

One of the most incredible pairings with truffles is mushrooms. This gelato is made using Portobello mushroom paste, truffle and a hint of salt to add savoury depth. The taste is curious – a mix of sweet and savoury that seems to play tricks on your brain.

Pecorino Gelato and Truffles

Piggy-backing from the same techniques used by chef Matteo Zini for his famous Parmigiano Reggiano Gelato, this recipe swaps Parmigiano with Pecorino cheese and just the perfect dose of fresh truffles to create an explosion of surprising flavours you'll never forget!

White Chocolate Gelato with Truffles and Iranian Pistachios

This recipe balances the sweet taste of white chocolate gelato, the musky and intense aromas of fresh truffles and the crunchiness of roasted Iranian pistachios.
