Our mission at The Chopping Block is to get you to cook. To do that, we must understand why people don’t cook. Obstacles to cooking typically range from time, budget, energy level or even a hatred of doing dishes. We know life can get in the way, but cooking at home is more healthful and less expensive than eating out, and it brings people together. It’s our goal to help you overcome obstacles to enjoy cooking at home. We do that through our cooking classes, private events and retail products.
Whether you are a seasoned cook or just starting to learn the basics, our comprehensive curriculum offers a wide range of classes to challenge all skill levels.
With over 25 years experience teaching home cooks, The Chopping Block is Chicago’s premiere recreational school. Take a tour of our unique, state-of-the-art, yet comfortable kitchens at Lincoln Square.
