Valeria Piccini is the owner and chef of Da Caino restaurant in Montemerano (GR).
Valeria is one of the most important Italian chefs on the international scene and an important representative of the most pure contemporary Italian cooking. Valeria's is a traditional Italian kitchen grounded in regional cooking but that, through experimentation and research, has become extremely light without losing its original identity, style and elegance.
Valeria never had professional training, but learned everything she knows alongside her mother in their home kitchen and later from her mother-in-law, owners of the family run restaurant in Montemerano (GR). In 1987 she took the reigns of the restaurant and turned a wonderful local restaurant into one of the most important and acclaimed restaurants in Italy, awarded two Michelin stars.
A revolution made possible also thanks to her husband, Maurizio Menichetti, who is in charge of the service, hospitality and wines of the restaurant. Maurizio's wine cellar, deep beneath the town of Montemerano in subterranean tunnels, is one of the most beautiful and well stocked cellars in Italy.
Valeria's cooking is both feminine and delicate, the homemade pasta is without rival, both silky and intense. Her meat dishes are incredible, the result of the study of ingredients and skill learned through experimentation. The bread is natural and delicate. Full of flavor but balanced, rich in every sense, Valeria describes her cooking as "vicina al giusto gusto" roughly translated as near to the right taste or almost perfect!
