The Chopping Block Cooking School

by The Chopping Block
(Chicago, IL)

The Chopping Block is Chicago's largest recreational cooking school and gourmet retail store. We regularly host kids and teen classes, from week-long camps in the summer to after-school sessions during the school year.

These classes provide an opportunity for budding chefs to get comfortable and have fun in the kitchen, working with recipes geared for their age group.

In the Kids’ Program, kids 7 to 11 years old learn fundamental kitchen skills, focusing on measuring, mixing, following recipes, working cleanly and safely in the kitchen, and exploring new foods.

The Teens’ Program is for young teens ages 12 to 16. Each week they focus on specific skills while experimenting with simple yet sophisticated menus that they’ll enjoy recreating at home. They’ll learn the basics of knife skills, cooking and baking techniques, menu planning, and organizing prep work.

We even offer classes for the wee ones! In our 1-hour "Tater Tot" classes, kids ages 3 to 7 get to help cook snacks, learn about ingredients, and have fun in the kitchen.
