About The Chopping Block

We have been teaching people in Chicago how to cook for 18 years. The Chopping Block is a recreational cooking school that combines education and entertainment, as our staff provides each guest “The Chopping Block Experience.” From the greeting you receive when you walk in our stores, to the music you hear, to the tools and equipment you use, to the menu you create, to the plate you eat on, to the products you shop for, we strive to provide the ultimate experience for our customers.


The Chopping Block website presented a unique design challenge in that the client needed to be able to update the site with fresh content regularly without "breaking" the design and without the help of a designer. To accomplish this, we setup the entire site on a grid with modular templates that the client can self select and then simply add an image, title, content, and CTA button. We provided the client with some simple guidelines for selecting images and content, but in the end it is a site that anyone can update.
