Private Cooking Parties

Celebrating a milestone with family and friends should be special. The Chopping Block’s private cooking parties provide a fun and engaging alternative to renting a reception room at a Chicago restaurant or hotel. Our private events for any social occasion offer your guests an opportunity to have fun with a pinch of education thrown in the mix. They will learn valuable cooking skills while making a delicious meal and creating memories that will linger long after the last bite of dessert is gone. From tapas to healthy cooking to cupcake wars, we can customize a menu to fit your group’s needs and tastes. We can execute any combination of hands-on or demonstration activity, or we can simply support your event by catering your meal or cocktail party in our event space. As with any event at The Chopping Block, you choose your level of culinary participation.Celebrate with your friends and family while our staff attends to your guests’ needs while serving up a healthy serving of fun.

"We had the best time! What a wonderful cooking school. The staff was very personable as they instructed and demonstrated many cooking techniques. I think we all learned something new, and this is a group of good cooks. The food was fresh and delicious and the libations were plentiful. Debbie, the birthday girl loved it!”
