Culinary experiences in the eternal city will take place in a very special place
Six years ago, Valeria Vocaturo, in love with the art and the magic of cooking, turned a beautiful apartment located in one of the most central and fascinating areas of Rome, into an exclusive cooking school.
Even if the name "Cuoche per caso" signifies a rather accidental approach to this new life, Valeria and her school represent the best mixture of creative, professional and selective cooking in Rome.
The school has a huge library of cook books, which serve both as an inspiration and as a reference library to Valeria, who specializes in typical Roman and regional cooking as well as in modern creative cuisine.
As if this wasn't enough of a reason to have established a liaison between the Tasteof.it with “Cuoche per caso,” the passion and respect Valeria has for natural, local and fresh products of all the regions of Italy, is unsurpassed.
Valeria and her school are, of course, associated with Slow Food.
