This 8,000-square-foot location is one of two outposts of The Chopping Block (the other is in Lincoln Square). The school caters to home cooks with a variety of hands-on and demonstration courses, as well as wine classes and a week-long Culinary Boot Camp, which mirrors the same techniques taught in professional culinary school. The space is also available for private cooking events, from social parties to corporate functions. In addition to four classroom kitchens, it features a retail area stocked with professional-quality cookware, gourmet and ethnic food products, and knives.
