BGE Love 


Everyone Loves an EGG

It's not often we see an EGGhead this young. But Olivia, the daughter of customer Mike Smith of Mission Press loves everything that comes off the EGG. Her favorite is Smoked Brisket with Smoky Eggplant Garlic Bread.


Here's Mike's recipe for the bread: Slice eggplant, sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper and add garlic cloves. Wrap it all in foil, leaving a 1" hole. Smoke for about 2 hours at 225 degrees. Spread onto fresh bread with goat cheese. Absolute perfection!

Try our Chef Tools Yourself       

Cooking at home can be much easier with a well-stocked kitchen. But that doesn't mean you need to buy every gadget out there. We don't like drawers full of single-purpose utensils any more than you do. At The Chopping Block, our chefs test every tool extensively before we decide to carry it in our retail stores. Our goal is to provide a well-edited supply of tools that help you get cooking!   


Tools We're making it easy for your to fill in the gaps in your tool kit by offering 20% off all Chef Tools in March.  


If you aren't sure what the best fit is for you, try out our tools yourself.

Julienne Peeler
Stop by our locations in Lincoln Square and the Merchandise Mart next month to try out our Peeling Station, featuring the Rosle crosswise peeler, palm peeler, and julienne peeler. Who knew there were so many ways to peel?

We will also feature a Grating Station with three different types of graters. Find the sharpest fit for your needs!

Herb Scissors
Our Herb Station will include an herb spinner to clean and dry your herbs, an herb mill to mince your herbs and herb scissors.


Don't miss this opportunity to put our tools to the test.
