Piccolina x Future Future gelato mochi launch

The World Loves Melbourne was invited to the Piccolina x Future Future gelato mochi launch. This was a top notch Italo-Japanese event and a great example of the innovative collaborations that are taking place in our city right now.

Delicious unique gelato mochi.

For one day only the gelato mochi dessert ball wil be available at Piccolina Collingwood. We sampled the gelato mochi and can't get enough! Think a creamy fior de latte gelato with tangy mandarin, lemon and yuzu sorbet for the mochi filling. Perfect refreshment for the season! The mixture is shaped into a ball and hand wrapped in glutenous flour. There will be only 200 available at Piccolina Collingwood on Friday Nov 16 and they will set you back $7 each.

We're also a sucker for a katsu-sandos and Future Future delivers. In fact we were enjoying these at the recent Oaks Day at Flemington in the Bird Cage.

We're crazy over Yuzu Spritz! Drink of the summer?
On the other hand we weren't familiar with Japanese disco - only disco of the John Travolta kind.

And when it comes to gelato, Piccolina serves up some of the best in town. The flavours and texture is awesome and Piccolina are always evolving with intersting offerings. A japanese influence for the gelato mochi is perfect for the season as a refreshing alternative.

A great night of  katsu-sandos, yuzu spritz, gelato, Japanese disco and of course the delicious Italo-Japanese flavoured gelato mochi! The mochi is as awesome for its texture as its taste. Grab some!
