The Chopping Block

Upon arrival to Chicago for Confrad’s AGM 2016, visitors will be greeted with a wealth of culinary options. We have taken the time to plan out many of the meals in order to showcase some of the city’s best establishments. One of these restaurants that we will be patronizing is the Chopping Block, located in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.

The Chopping Block

There’s no better way to experience Chicago than through food, and some of the best food is created at the Chopping Block. This unique event allows you to act as chef for the evening, cooking your own gourmet meal with the assistance of the Chopping Block staff. The dishes you will create come from different areas of Chicago, including West Town, Greektown, Chinatown, Pilsen, and Little Italy, providing you with a wide range of exposure to Chicago cuisine.

The Chopping Block is also a great way to network with your peers in a more inviting setting, whether it’s while your broccoli is steaming or your pierogis are in the oven. Despite the more relaxed atmosphere, the ingredients you will work with are certainly not compromised. In fact, the quality ensures that the meal you create will be one of the best dinners you can find in Chicago. Don’t worry about reservations; we’ve taken care of scheduling. Sit back and enjoy your meal … after you’ve created it!

From the Chopping Block’s website:

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.

Our warm and inviting kitchens are the perfect place to take your guests on a culinary adventure.
