Future Classes

There are no scheduled chefs at this time.  Check back soon for dates in 2020!

Regional chefs from Italy visit arte italia only 4 times a year, focusing on traditional recipes with innovative techniques. The class schedule for each day will include a mix of traditional and contemporary cuisine from the chef's region. For each culinary class, the visiting chef will prepare an authentic Italian dinner including antipasto, primo piatto, secondo piatto and dolce. 

  • Menus change for each class. Recipes may include seafood, meat, dairy, eggs, wheat or nuts.  Gluten-free and special plating are not available.
  • Classes begin at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday and 5:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday. Classes are approximately three hours.
  • Tuition for Selected Registrants is $60 per class ($55 for seniors 65+ and students).
  • Classes are held at 442 Flint Street, Reno.

Regional interest in arte italia’s culinary program continues to be overwhelming! Our guests are thrilled to dine in the cucina with visiting chefs but our capacity is very limited. To ensure the fairest possible seating for new and former participants, we utilize a randomized system to select guests for each culinary class.

Notification and Payment Policy: You may enter your name and the name of one guest (party of two). We will notify selected registrants by email. Please do not send payment unless you have been specifically notified regarding selection. Payment instructions will be provided in the notification message. Upon notification, please submit tuition payment. Receipt of payment confirms registration. Non-payment after 48 hours will release your seats to the waiting list. 

Parking is located at the rear of the building at 442 Flint Street in Reno. Additional street parking is available on both California Avenue and Flint Street, and metered parking on surrounding streets is free after 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and all day on Sundays and holidays.

Culinary classes may be recorded for archival use and online culinary instruction. Please speak quietly for the benefit of other students and video viewers, and please drink responsibly.

All culinary class tuition is donated to Roman Catholic charitable organizations.
