Get ready, food lovers of Chicago! This will be a fall to remember.

On October 7 and 8, seven famed chefs from across the globe will flock to Eataly Chicago for the eighth U.S. edition of Identità Golose, the acclaimed international chefs' forum. From Sarah Grueneberg to Davide Oldani, these all-stars will compare the latest trends in a three-day convention that — get ready — is open to the public.

That's right: you can learn (and taste) from the world's best in four unique master classes featuring two of Italy's most treasured dishes: pizza and pasta.

Explore the calendar below, then book your tickets — these events sell out quickly!


What better pairing for Chicago than pizza and pasta? Join us for a night of exclusive access to pizza and pasta dishes made by award-winning Italian chefs. With your ticket, you'll have the opportunity to try all four dishes by these award-winning chefs, along with food and beverage provided by Berlucchi Franciacorta, Grana Padano cheese, Acqua Panna still water, San Pellegrino sparkling water and Lavazza espresso!


In each intimate master class, two chefs will be paired in our cooking school to share their favorite new culinary techniques as they each create a classic Italian favorite: pizza or pasta. As they work their magic, you will enjoy each dish — prepared and plated before your eyes! — served with complementary wine pairings.

Only 30 seats are available for each master class, so sign up now!

Identità Golose, founded in 2004 by Italian food journalist Paolo Marchi, is a culinary organization whose mission is to highlight the best of contemporary Italian cuisine, showcase the culinary excellence of each Italian region, and honor the top Italian chefs who proudly blend traditional techniques with modern methods. The first Identità Golose event was held in Milano in 2005, and many more have been held since, each showcasing the greatest Italian and international chefs, pastry chefs, and artisanal producers. The success of Identità Golose in Italy eventually led to the launch of Identità London in 2009 and finally with an American audience in 2010.

This year, the international theme is "Don’t waste the planet; the truth is in the dish," representing how the restaurant industry and everyday lives are interconnected. The events this October will highlight how chefs around the entire world are no longer just ambassadors of taste and quality but also ambassadors of sustainability, good practices, and new techniques.
