Milan for foodies - the food emporium Peck and Eataly
If you are a foodie visiting Milan there are a couple of places not to be missed.
In the center of town, within a couple of minutes walk from the Duomo on Via Spadari 9 (Google Map directions were confusing, just take Via Torino from the Duomo and turn right on Spadari) you will find Peck, a high end gourmet food store and restaurant that is rightly described as a gastronomical temple celebrating the best foods from not only Italy but from around the world.
With a history spanning two centuries Peck evolved from a sausage making artisanal shop to the food equivalent of a Louis Vuitton. Food is made in-house in the vast kitchen at the back. You can peek around the corner behind the cheese counter and watch the chefs labouring over beautiful food soon to be available on the counters in the store. More kitchens are hidden downstairs.
