At The Chopping Block, we firmly believe that cooking brings people together. Your private cooking event will be a true bonding experience for your business. Our private events are hands-on, inspiring, interactive sessions that will help your corporate team better communicate, delegate tasks, see tangible results from their efforts and simply have fun together. Our professional chefs help your colleagues work together in a cohesive, positive and efficient way to create a delicious meal together. Not only will your team learn cooking skills they can use in their own kitchens at home, they will learn how to effectively communicate and work together. These are important skills that will easily translate from our kitchens to your office.
People from all cultures, ages, interests and cooking abilities gather from all over the country in our kitchens to share the universal experience of cooking, learning and of course, eating! The Chopping Block’s culinary team building program is unique in that our highly skilled and experienced chefs are trained to be engaging and inspiring teachers and leaders in the kitchen. They will help your team break down barriers that may exist in the workplace as they participate in this fun, playful team bonding event. The results could be the recipe for your business’ success.
Pre-determine your groups to make sure certain people work together or let the bonds build organically. Each event’s topics and objectives are customized to meet your goals, schedule and budget. As with any event at The Chopping Block, you choose your level of culinary participation.

"From the beginning, the staff was incredibly easy to work with. Even when dealing with multiple food allergies in the group, I was able to work with them to concoct the perfect menu. The hors d'oeuvres were displayed beautifully and were ready for guests to enjoy as they entered the venue. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and provided the guests with kitchen tips and facts that were very informative. The guests had a great time making their entrées and the flow of the kitchen set up made it seamless for our large group. The guests were able to interact and work together to create a spectacular meal while having a great time. My client was very pleased with how the night went and everyone left very happy (and full)!”- Carla Zenzola, Vi Living
