About Events with The Chopping Block - Lincoln Square
The party always starts and ends in the kitchen at Chicago's premier recreational cooking school, The Chopping Block. Our custom private cooking events bring people together over food and wine. Whether your goal is to entertain VIP clients, celebrate a family birthday or create a more cohesive corporate team, we offer a fun, educational and diverse event solution. From interactive cooking parties for all ages and skills to wine tastings and new atmospheres for business meetings, our kitchens provide the perfect venues to create a memorable experience. We host events for 6 to 90 employees, colleagues or friends at our Lincoln Square location, and you always choose your level of culinary participation. We even have an outdoor grilling patio so you can grill under the sun or stars at our Lincoln Square location. Let us get you cooking!
