Longrain & Piccolina dish up a Thai banquet

Friday, 21st August and Saturday, 22nd August

Melbourne favourites Longrain and Piccolina Gelateria have joined forces in a collaboration sure to brighten up your weekend during lockdown.


For one weekend only, Longrain and Piccolina come together to bring a limited-edition modern Thai banquet for you to heat and eat at home, complete with three bespoke Thai-inspired gelato flavours designed by chef Scott Pickett.


Longrain’s owner Scott Pickett says, “We all need something to look forward to at the moment and this collaboration is the perfect weekend treat! Coming up with these unique flavours with Longrain’s menu has been very exciting and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do”.

The banquet will centre on Longrain’s signature dishes, including the filled eggnet with prawn, pomelo & bean shoots; the caramelised pork hock, five spice & chilli vinegar; and mussaman curry of beef, lime leaf & candlenut.


The gelato is inspired by traditional Thai flavours and pairs perfectly with the banquet. The result is three decadent flavours, including Caramelised Banana Gelato layered with Roasted Peanuts; Lemon Sorbet infused with Lemongrass, Ginger & Thai Basil; and Caramelised Palm Sugar Gelato, Palm Sugar, Caramel & Honeycomb.


Piccolina Gelateria owner, Sandra Foti says, “We were really excited to have teamed up with Scott & Longrain to create something so fun and delicious”.


The banquet menu will be available for pre-order only via the Longrain website and can be collected from Piccolina Hawthorn, Piccolina Collingwood and Estelle Northcote or delivered to your door for a small fee. The banquet menu will need some finishing touches from you at home.
