Gift Card


Give the Gift of Cooking   

A successful party ends with gifts for guests! And every guest will love a Chopping Block gift card. Good for the latest kitchen tool they used during the event, the sparkling wine they fell in love with or that cooking class they want to take next week, a gift card is a token your team or clients will appreciate.  


Gift cards can even be used to pay for future events. So, consider our "Give More Get More" card for clients who may be considering hosting their own cooking event. You pay just $400 but get $450 in value!




Step Up  

The Chopping Block Steps Up   


The Chopping Block is an active partner in our community. Each year, we donate thousands of dollars in cooking products and services to local charities.  


Marjorie and Jennifer from our team recently attended The Step Up Women's Network

"Shine and Dine" Event in Chicago. This amazing organization empowers teen girls from under-resourced communities to be confident, college-bound, and career-ready. Go girls! 



We always say the best parties start in the kitchen. Now, we have the pictures to prove it! Our new Pinterest board has images from recent events, including some amazing shots from Susan Ryan Photography. Drool over our delicious food and see how much fun people are having at our events!

If competition is more your team's game, our Iron Chef private events will get your business cooking. Your group will be divided into teams to face off in our own kitchen stadiums. Each team will be led by a professional chef to create a meal from a mystery basket of seasonal ingredients, plus access to our well-stocked pantry.
