New Call-to-action


It's Time to Start Cooking

To our loyal cooking community, both locations of The Chopping Block are currently closed to comply with the state of Illinois’ stay-at-home mandate.

However, we continue our mission to get you cooking at home by offering virtual classes. We currently have two types of virtual classes:

  • Our Virtual Demonstration classes, via Zoom, are a fun opportunity to watch your chef in action. During class, your chef will teach you how to  prepare the dishes while you observe and take notes. Our Zoom moderator  will make sure your questions submitted through the chat option are answered during or after class. The recipe packet will be provided upon registration. Please note that some recipe steps may be prepared ahead due to the length of the class. This price of this class is $10 + fees per screen.


  • Our Virtual Cook Along classes, via Zoom, will have you and your chef cooking together in real time. We’ll provide you with the recipe packet and equipment list upon registration, so you’re prepared to get cooking, and when it’s over you’ll have dinner on the table! Our Zoom moderator will make sure your questions are answered live by the chef either during or after class. The price of this class is $50 + fees per screen.

See all of our current offerings, and check back often as we continue to add more curriculum each week.

We plan to begin to offer curbside pickup for retail items, including wine and spirits, in the next few weeks, so stay tuned here for information about that.

Another way you can help support our business while we are shut down is to purchase a gift card. Our gift cards are good toward classes, events and retail, and they never expire. Gift card purchases will be critical in helping small businesses stay afloat during this shutdown. 

Gift Card Classes

It's always been our mission to "get you cooking." While we cannot remain open to help you during this critical time, know that we are always here for you. Reach out to us via email, our website or social media channels with your cooking questions. Let's return to the kitchen during this uncertain time, and cook!  

Stay healthy and safe as we all navigate through this unprecedented time together. As things are changing constantly, we'll use this page to provide updates to you.
