We place more emphasis on food in our families these days. We want to know where our food is coming from, we know we should be able to pronounce each ingredient on the nutritional label and frozen dinners just don't cut it anymore. More parents are realizing that teaching their kids to cook helps prepare them for the future. Enrolling your child in a kid or teen cooking class at The Chopping Block bring them one step closer.
Each kids' and teens' class includes a hands-on lesson on ingredients, sanitation, organization and cooking techniques.
In our kids' classes, budding chefs 7 to 11 years old learn fundamental kitchen skills, focusing on measuring, mixing, working cleanly and safely in the kitchen, and exploring new foods, while following recipes geared for their age group.
Young teens ages 12 to 16 get to experiment with simple yet sophisticated menus that they’ll enjoy re-creating at home. They’ll learn the basics of knife skills, cooking and baking techniques, and organizing prep work.
Your kids will become confident in the kitchen, make new friends and of course, learn important cooking skills during our classes and camps.
We even have classes for your very young chefs. In our Tater Tots classes, kids ages 3 to 7 help cook snacks, learn about ingredients, and have fun in the kitchen.
The entire family cooks together in our Family Night classes. These classes with family-friendly menus encourage parents and kids to work together and explore cooking as a family. Start a new Sunday supper tradition!
All kid and teen classes are held at our Lincoln Square location.

We welcome teens (12 and up) to participate in any of our adult cooking classes if accompanied by an adult.
“The Chopping Block has long been regarded as one of the best places for novice chefs to learn how to cook. Their stellar reputation extends to their kids' camp program.”Read more about our camps in Make It Better magazine.
