  • Iron Chef Cooking Parties
Per Person

Price varies based on menu and beverage selections. There is a food & beverage minimum that varies based on guest count as well as day, time and location of your party. These minimums are met through the menu, welcome appetizers and bar options you chose. For most events, there is no additional rental or staffing fee as those prices are included in the per person price. Weekday daytime events are a popular choice if you are working within a budget. Our Event Coordinators are happy to customize parties according to format, budget and the type of experience you envision for your guests.


All Iron Chef competitive events at The Chopping Block include:

  • At least 1.5 hours of professional cooking instruction
  • Multi-course menu

  • Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable staff
  • 10% retail discount on the day of your event for your guests

Iron Chef Competitive Cooking

Perfect for corporate team building or family fun, The Chopping Block’s exclusive Iron Chef competitive cooking events are designed to inspire creativity and a little friendly competition. Our version of the popular TV series is a timed culinary challenge to see who can stand the heat of the kitchen. Your group will be divided into teams, and each team will work under the guidance of a professional chef to create a meal that will be judged.

Each team and their chef will kick off the event with a creative brainstorming session strategizing their menu based on the selected cuisine of the event (think French, Italian, Latin and more). That cuisine will be the culinary theme for all teams and the mystery basket of seasonal ingredients, including different proteins, fruits, vegetables and starches will reflect that theme. Your group will also have access to our well-stocked pantry of herbs, spices, oils and vinegar. Then, you’ll work together with your culinary coach to delegate tasks in order to execute a creative, beautiful and of course, tasty meal. Each team will produce enough portions to sample their own efforts, as well as share with their rival teams, collectively creating a full meal.

An impartial judge will determine a winning team based on taste, plating/presentation and original use of the ingredients. Judging can also include team cohesiveness, communication and cleanliness of work stations throughout the competition.

Iron Chef competitive cooking events are a fun and spirited teamwork activity and work well for corporate events or gatherings of friends and family. This culinary adventure will get your business cooking!

Reward your Top Chefs with a gift from our retail store or a gift card to spend on their own or use toward a cooking class.

"We are an extremely competitive bunch, and my team thoroughly enjoyed the night. My problem now will be how to top it next year. In fact, we were recently at dinner and members of the winning team(myself included) were still razzing the losing team. So, almost three months later, we're still getting value from the night. You have a great thing going at The Chopping Block!"
