The history of this world famous brand began back in 1883, when Francesco Peck opened a shop which quickly reached the heights of Milanese gastronomy and soon became a meeting place of the intelligentsia: around its tables sat artists, journalists, writers and actors. The Stoppani brothers bought the store in 1970 and continue the high standards of quality carefully selection products from around the world. Includes a collection of recipes.
