The Chopping Block

Thanks to everyone that was able to join us at the virtual Passport to Chicago event! Since we couldn’t all be together in one kitchen this spring, the CBF brought Passport to Chicago to your kitchen with a virtual cooking demonstration event in partnership with The Chopping Block. Chef Sara passed along loads of culinary tips and tricks while showing how to make Roasted Vegetable and Black Bean Enchiladas with Ranchero Sauce and Refried Beans.

A portion of the registration proceeds will benefit The Chopping Block, a local business, while the rest will go toward the CBF’s mission of improving access to justice for people in need. On behalf of the CBF board and staff, we are grateful for the support of all our event participants, sponsors and co-chairs and hope you enjoyed expanding your cooking repertoire with us.

Congratulations to our six raffle winners who all went home—or stayed at home—with some great restaurant gift card bundles: Allan Alongi, Paul Bateman Jr., Richard Danaher, Sara Fowler, Will Hornsby, and Hon. Nicole Patton.
