This Lincoln Square outpost is the more intimate of the Chopping Block's two Chicago cooking schools (the other is located in the Merchandise Mart), with a retail store and demonstration kitchen on the first floor and fully equipped kitchen space for hands-on classes upstairs. There's also a back patio where summer grilling clases are held. The school caters to home cooks with instruction in culinary skills and techniques and classes focusing on seasonal, ethnic and other types of cooking, as well as wine courses and the occasional beer class. The retail shop sells professional-quality cookware and kitchen tools, cookbooks, and an array of gourmet and ethnic ingredients, including all hard-to-find items used in the school's classes.
