The event opens at 5:30 pm, with fresh-prepared appetizers served near the outdoor kitchen area, for an opportunity to meet and mingle with the Chef. A five-course dinner will then be served at 7:00 pm, and Chef Patel will speak to each dish as it’s being served.

The Culinary Club dinner is our way of offering you a unique foodie experience. And your enjoyment is two-fold because the program further supports our mission and funds our Mobile Art Program. We look forward to a fabulous evening together!


Old Town Artisan Culinary Club was launched in September of 2019. The Culinary Arts has been an art campus component since the charity’s inception. Club members recognize the program is part of the larger charitable work done by Old Town Artisan Studios. The basics of a cooking venue already existed, and it is a natural progression for us to add a culinary aspect to our family.

Old Town Artisan Studios will work to partner with renown Chefs to bring you gourmet dinners. Each dinner is limited to 40 guests to allow for a more intimate setting, and the opportunity to enjoy gourmet food, while mingling with the Chef. Each dining experience will be designed by the Chef – the evening may present as a 5-course sit down dinner, or a gather around the grill and see how we create a culinary masterpiece! The one aspect we guarantee is that you will have a wonderful and special time!

The Culinary Club events are private events for our members. Along with gourmet dinners, the events will include Wine-Down Wednesdays and Holiday-Themed Luncheons. Annual Culinary Club Membership dues are $20 per person, per year. Membership dues are waved for our Monet Circle Members.

The price for the Culinary Club events will be determined and billed separately. The cost per person will be listed prior to each individual event. For the Gourmet Dinners, the cost of the meal will be provided to each paying guest to determine the allowable tax deduction to our non-profit.

Seated lunch and dinner events are limited to 40 guests. Based on demand and the Chef’s availability, an additional dinner event may be added the following day. Membership does not include guaranteed seating per event – seating is on a first come bases. Club members (individual or couple) may reserve two seats, plus four guests not to exceed six total persons on a first come, first reserved basis. The price per person is the same for members and non-members.
