CHOPPED MYSTERY BASKET – Any Partner of Choice

July 30 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$35.00 – $90.00

Sold out!  No worries, we will add another to the Fall lineup soon!

Who will be our next Chopped Champion??  Appropriate for teens and adults who can cook without instruction – I mean, it’s gonna take  some talent to beat out our first Chopped Champions –

Jen Funk & Jill Grube – who will be back to defend their title!!  IF you win – you get invited back to defend your title in our next Chopped battle event at no charge!

Always thought you had what it takes to compete in Chopped! We’ll help you put that to the test! We are at it again with our Chopped Team Challenge! You and a partner of any choice, age 12 and up, will compete against other pairs in the ultimate cooking experience. 2 rounds of intense competition includes two chances to compete in first – an appetizer and secondly, an entree round.  Each team will have the same mystery basket as their competitors, which will contain 4-5 (or really just however many we want to include  🙂 secret ingredients you must use in your dish, either a little or a lot. We will have a pantry full of all the ingredients you need – fresh and dry.  We cannot accommodate dietary restrictions in this class (we have no clue what the teams will be cooking! )

A special prize will be awarded to the winning team, plus we will add your name to our house trophy as one of our Chopped Champs!!!!

Think you have what it takes? Come down to The Cookery and see!

Can’t stand to miss out, but not ready to compete??  Join us in the audience in a front row seat, where you could even be selected as a guest judge!  Snacks will be provided with this ticket, byob.  Chopped food entries are not promised to audience members.

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are no longer asking all students to wear a mask to class. If you have been vaccinated, you may choose to wear one, or not.  You of course, may wear a mask if you choose. We will be providing hand sanitizer at the door upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home. You may call to cancel your ticket with a two day or more notice, and we will issue a credit to be used on a future class.  No refunds. Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever.  Now that our county has moved to Tier 1, we can all enjoy our meal under The Cookery roof again! However, if you feel more comfortable taking all of our delicious foods home in a box, you can do that as well!  You will get a portion of each dish!

Please indicate the age of your child (children) in the comment sections. Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring your favorite knife and a beverage to drink if you wish. We will provide knives if you do not have them.  We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink.

Our classes are popular and often sell out!  You must cancel your registration at least 7 days in advance to receive a full refund for this class.  There will be a processing fee to cancel your ticket per person no matter when you cancel. You can cancel by calling the school at 309-263-6020 or by emailing us your request to cancel at thecookeryinc@gmail.com.  Tickets canceled the day before or on the day of class will not receive a refund for any reason (even Covid/weather related).  You may gift or sell your tickets to someone else if you are not able to come but we cannot forward them to another class.

If you have a cardboard gift card with a 3-digit number and want to redeem it for this class, you must call or email to reserve your class spot prior to the class selling out.  If you reserve your spot with a gift card and do not show, you will forfeit the amount owed for the class from your gift card.
