Class Information

Regional chefs from Italy will visit arte italia throughout the 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. 

The menus change for each class. The chefs generally include fish, poultry, meats, dairy products, garlic, herbs and olive oil in their recipes. Some recipes may include nuts.

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

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