About: Keryn Ursi

"Micia" means "kitten" my husband has affectionally called me this since we met. La Micia Cooking is run by Keryn Ursi. Keryn is married to Roberto – an Italian from Le Marche region of Italy for the past 8 years. Keryn has been influenced and immersed in Italian culture and its cuisine. Her Italian in-laws (Franco and Gabriella) have owned bars across Italy – Milan, Trani (Puglia) and Piandimeleto (Le Marche) for the past 30 years. And of course there’s Nonna Marianna (now 95) who started making pasta by hand herself at the age of 8. Over a three year period whilst living in Piandimeleto – Keryn worked for an Italian Cooking and Language School (Rocca dei Malatesta) and learnt hands on authentic Italian cooking from an Italian chef in a renown local Restaurant called Osteria La Gatta, Keryn’s job at the language school was to organise activities around truffle hunting and cheese making and teaching regional wine tasting and appreciation. Participating in local Festivals in Le Marche was also a featured activity and some of these festivals celebrated white and black truffles, mushrooms and bruschetta – a positively decadent food experience. During this time Keryn also assisted her in-law’s in making the local cakes for their bar.
