I work in in the field of creative direction for fashion brands and top-level accommodation venues. I am a creative person who loves art, music and design. I'm an enthusiastic lindy hop and boogie-woogie dancer and I'm a collector of 40's and 50's vintage garments and fornitures. I learned to cook for joke and it become a serious daily pleasure. I think the good cuisine, first of all, needs to be a cuddle. Behind the favorite dish, of each one of us, there is a childhood memory, a special occasion, a story to tell. I love put that kind of feelings into a dish and cook together them with top quality ingredients. Andrea, my partner, is a pro musician. He inherited passion for food from his grandpa, a professional chef who teached him the art of italian culinary tradition. He's third level graduated sommelier from Italian Sommelier Association. We decided to open the door of our home to new friends, food lovers and like-minded travelers to share our passions and our vision of good living.
When good cooking, the one made with love and high quality ingredients, research and attention, can be shared with people who are spiritually similar, whether old or new friends, even food becomes experience, exchange, knowledge. In our idea the research for taste coincides with the desire to satisfy the senses, to enjoy life, to create a comfort zone, an ode to good living.
Como será la experiencia en casa de Valeria
An unique and authentic experience. You are embraced in a pleasant atmosphere from the begining. An unusual house where each object tells a story. The dinner is the real star of the evening. I enjoyed very delicious dishes each paired with its own special wine, selected by Andrea the in-house sommelier. At Valeria's house I discovered authentic flavors that tell about the whole Italian culinary tradition. The perfect experience for those who want to discover the true Italian cuisine.
Una serata bellissima fuori dai soliti giri, di grande socialità e originalità. Si può dire che Casa di Valeria e Andrea è una perla nascosta dove gustare dell'ottimo cibo, ottimo vino e incontrare persone interessanti. Si può prenotare anche su richiesta e tornerò portando altri amici buongustai.
Warm and welcoming atmosphere! The house is furnished with style and creativity. The hosts, Valeria and Andrea, made me very welcome so it really felt like I was having an evening with good friends. At the table I met very kind and interesting diners. The food was divine and the selection of wines to match for each course was really good. Valeria and Andrea told us stories and little secrets about the recipes. I would highly recommend this. Also great for solo travelers. A delicious experience, in every way!
Valeria's house is definitely the best place where to eat fish in Florence. I've been to many places, I tried several quality restaurants and I've never tasted anything like this. Highest quality and freshest ingredients cooked with great skills and care. An explosion of flavors at every mouthful. Perfect combination of regional wines. I will come back soon and I will share this experience with more friends.
