World Famous Butcher Dario Cecchini To Cook at Michael Smith

You've heard of a meet-and-greet? Well, get ready for a meat-and-greet ... Dario Cecchini, the world famous "Butcher of Panzano" will be in Kansas City for three days - three dinners and a luncheon - at Michael Smith at 1900 Main street, June 3-5.

The days long event will feature some of Kansas City's own famous chefs, such as Alex Pope of Local Pig, the inimitable Jasper Mirabile of Jasper's and Marco Polo's Italian Market and of course, chef Michael Smith.

"For meat lovers, this is a bucket-list worthy event," says Michael Smith, owner of restaurants Extra Virgin and the eponymous Michael Smith, both at 1900 Main street, in the crossroads art district of Kansas City, MO. "Dario Cecchini is one-of-a-kind," say Smith. "Part butcher, part poet, larger than life he serves up equal portions of tasty meat and quotes from Dante's Inferno."

Cecchini hails from Panzano in Chianti, Italy an eighth generation butcher from father to son in the same shop! His philosophy is to use the whole animal and in fact he says ... "I am a butcher from nose to tail."

The June 3rd dinner is already sold out, but dinners on the 4th and 5th and a luncheon with chef Jasper Mirabile and Dario still have some ticket available. Call 816-842-2202 or email to book a reservation for this very unique event.
