Casa Somerset's Chef Michael Hursey
For Michael Hursey, cooking is not a job it is his passion. His early exposure to Midwest hospitality made his dream a reality. Setting his sights to a culinary career, Chef Michael attended the Johnson County Culinary program. He has worked under the direction of Laura Caponetti of the Cooking School of Tuscania, Italy. Chef Michael attended the Cambridge Culinary School, and has participated in many classes with Chef Jasper Mirabile, a James Beard award winner and 4 star chef.
Growing up in the Midwest and working side by side with farmers and various chefs has helped Mike incorporate his culinary skills to create a dining experience and evening to remember. His love of Italy comes through the distinctive dishes he prepares. You will imagine you are in Italy when Chef Michael is cooking, from the kitchen comes laughter, skill, professionalism and great flavor!
His devotion to supporting local food artisans and farmers brings a unique cuisine to the area.
Chef Michael will cater your party or business meeting, or he will come into your home as a private chef. This occasion can be for a large dinner party, a romantic dinner for two, or a benefit for your group. This unique dining experience can be guest interactive if desired. It also makes a wonderful gift for that hard-to-buy friend or relative.
