From Milan: Salumeria Peck

I am in Milan ( about 40 degrees today...but happy to be here!) at the temple of gluttony and pleasure. The building Liberty facade is a testimonial of the history of "Salumeria Peck" now known around the world since they export some of their specialties in different countries but when I grew up it was just for Milanese like me. Founded in 1883 and still at the top.
Restructuring the store was a very complex job, says Arch. Roberto Beretta, since the space is made of four different buildings and required important structural changes. Food preservation and lighting were also a priority. Three levels, 3300 mq. all furnished by Poliform custom made inch by inch.

Main floor gastronomy space with butcher, bakery, the best cheeses, prosciutti, cold meats, take away delicatessen, sweets.

First floor with Patisserie and Coffee and tea shop, also a place for a lunch break meal.

Cotto floor and furniture made of Pear wood for the enoteca with about 5000 different wine labels.
Heaven on earth for food and wine connoisseurs.

Looks superb. I can almost smell the wine, cheese, coffee and pastries. Holy cow 40 degrees! I had no idea it got that cold in August there. Note to self: travel to Italy with jacket!

What I wouldn’t give to be at Peck’s coffee bar and enjoying a Barbaiada with lots of espresso, sugar, cocoa, whip cream... Ooh... I miss Milan, but your blog is easing the pain :-) mille grazie - Lausen
