Peck, Milan

Peck, Milan

Peck is famous for its homemade ravioli and selection of more than 3,000 different kinds of Parmesan cheese. There is also a well-stocked wine cellar and a mind-boggling array of prosciutto. Even with all this choice, Peck still has something hidden up its sleeve - giant sweets that come in all sorts of different shapes and flavors.

No matter where you live, whenever you think of Italy, food is one of those things you may want to experiment if you come around and share with friends and relatives once home. It may take too long to try all that Italy can offer unless you come to Milan and enter Peck, one of the most ancient food halls in town where local produce are presented and served with the same care you would expect in a boutique.

Specialties at Peck's include Italian ham, pasta, olives, oil, over 100 cheeses and Piedmont white truffles. Choose those you like best or those inspiring you the most and put them in your “gift box”. Should you opt for the Milanese Risotto, be aware that Superfino Carnaroli is one of the most famous and prestigious variety of Italian rice, esteemed for its big and consistent grains, with its relevant nutritional characteristics and exceptional gastronomic qualities. When cooking, the rice grains increase to a size three times bigger, maintaining nevertheless a unique plumpness.

It can be accompanied by Peck's saffron stigmas coming from Sardinia, known for their intense taste and aroma, which is slowly but persistently released during cooking. In Peck's wine cellar you can find unique wines that tell the history of Italian wine-making. Cabanon's Bonarda is a red wine which is only produced in excellent vintage years using grapes picked at maximum ripeness, whose bouquet, together with a round velvety flavor, make it the excellent serving with first courses and hearty red meats.

What to buy here: Delicatessen in the Peck Gift Box.

Operation hours: Thursday-Saturday: 9 am- 8 pm.
