“We’re celebrating all the chefs of Central Illinois,” Pasfield House Proprietor Tony Leone proclaims. In the past few years the Pasfield House has teamed up with LLCC Hospitality Program along with having the best local chefs prepare food for elegant affairs. The Pasfield kitchen has gotten a national reputation after being featured on the Food Network Chanel for a Celebrity Chef Bobby Flay Throwdown durign the 2007 holiday season.

Both real and aspiring Celebrity Chefs will want to display their cooking art to friends and fans. A profit sharing arrangement will be developed for these specialty dinners the chefs prepare and serve at the Pasfield Kitchen Chef’s Table. Most common will be for the social interaction and the pure fun of eating fine cuisine, while socializing with old friends or making new ones.

The chef’s table class room has been constructed with a staging area for preparing and cooking right in front of an audience. Seating is arranged at variable height tables so the students have an unobstructed view. After the food is prepared, attendees feast on that day’s fine cuisine. This program will appeal to tourists and local foodies alike.

The class room kitchen has six tables with seating for 20 friends. Cooking classes generally range from 10 to 16 (maximum 20) depending on the amount of hands on participation expected. The Pasfield House Chefs Table is appealing with high-end commercial features mixed with an ambiance that has everyone observing an eclectic array of culinary bric-a-brac. The multi height tables assure everyone’s view is not obstructive. Adjacent to the Chef's Table is a wine cellar bistro lounge where guest can relax before the dinner and even be entertained by a live performer. Truly a unique experience in Springfield. The bistro atmosphere is inviting and relaxing, making the gathering a fun time together. Whether a private gathering of associates or just friends, Leone hopes the Pasfield House Kitchen Chef’s Table will be the place to celebrate good food, good friends and good times.
