The events are set to take place on April 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lincoln Square location and on April 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Chopping Block’s Merchandise Mart location.
Both days are free, open to the public with no registration required and will feature demonstrations and hands-on cooking classes from guest and current chef instructors.
The anniversary also marks the end of a years-long rebranding project which introduced a new look for The Chopping Block including a new logo, mobile-optimized website and remodeled facilities.
Owner/Chef Shelley Young opened The Chopping Block in a small cottage in Lincoln Park on April 4, 1997 as a small cooking school and antique cookware shop. The brand now has two locations in Chicago.
