about us
The Chopping Block is a leader in the culinary industry for its mission to get people to cook. The premier recreational cooking school, private event venue and gourmet retail and wine/spirit store has been in business since 1997 in Chicago due to its ability to adapt to its customers’ needs. The Chopping Block is now a leader in the virtual space as well, bringing cooking instruction from professional chefs into the comfort of your own kitchen with highly interactive, educational and fun virtual classes and private events.

Whether in-person or virtually, an attentive staff interacts with customers like they would with their own families: they swap stories, share recipes and learn together. The Chopping Block modifies what they teach, how they teach and what products they offer to fit the ever-changing needs of their students. From virtual vacations that transport you to a foreign land with authentic cuisine to Building Blocks classes designed to build a foundation to professional culinary school-style instruction in Culinary Boot Camps, The Chopping Block addresses deficiencies in cooking skills for all levels.
