    Learning to Cook with The Chopping Block

    Friday, Oct 21, 2016 10:00 - 12:30 PM @ Merchandise Mart
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Discover your inner-chef with the expert cooking instructors at The Chopping Block. Learn the fundamentals of knife skills, cooking and baking techniques and get a behind-the-scenes look at how a restaurant cooks a menu from prep to plate. Discover the five basic tastes: sweetness, sourness, saltiness, bitterness and umami, and how balancing all of them can change your cooking. Whether you’re an aspiring chef or are simply looking to make restaurant-quality meals at home, participants will leave this lab with culinary skills that they’ll use the rest of their lives.

    *Must be 16 years or older to attend. Wear close-toed shoes.
