Virtual Classes

The Chopping Block is now offering virtual classes! Virtual cooking has been part of our strategic planning for years, and we are excited to bring this curriculum to fruition. Get cooking in the comfort of your own kitchen with our virtual Cooking Demonstrations and Cook Along 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.

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.

Hear what people are saying about our virtual classes

"The virtual cook along class on Profiteroles and Cream Puffs was great. Chef Lisa was amazing! Class was well organized and hosted in a fun, friendly manner. Easy to follow instructions and great interactions and feedback from the chef. I have previously taken an in-person class and this is the next best thing! ~Suzanne

"I really enjoyed watching Chef Sara because I am the type of learner that needs to visually see to create something. Just reading a recipe does not work for me. Options were given if some of the ingredients were not good for any one of the students. My husband and I really wanted part of the finished chicken!" ~Andi

"I love the virtual classes! Both I have taken were informative, fun, and I learned something new during each class. The price of each of the classes was a great value. Thank you for a great diversion during the virus lock down!" ~AJ
