About Kasey Mills

Kasey Mills is Executive Chef and Co-Owner of Mediterranean Exploration Company (M.E.C.) and Shalom Y'all. Mills opened M.E.C in July 2014 with mentor and Portland restaurateur John Gorham, owner of Toro Bravo, Tasty n Sons and Tasty n Alder. Mills and Gorham have worked closely together at Toro Bravo for the past seven years. Inspired by the way a region’s cuisine tells a story of its peoples’ interactions and exchanges over time, Mills aims to bring the rich cultural history of the eastern Mediterranean to the Pacific Northwest.
