Thank you so much! I have been reading your forum a lot, but it's the first time i actually asked for help - and you, guys, know what you are talking about! I feel now so much better and relaxed about this trip!
Thanks again. I will share with you my experiences once i am back

Grocery shopping in milan

Following my previous post
I kept investigating, got in touch with Ruffoni and they suggested visiting Borla Elite sore in via Cerva, kind of local E.Dehillerin - for European manufacturers of cookware

Thanks for relating
I will be staying at NHow hotel in via Tortona.
I agree that my shopping list is probably quite "average" for an Italian grocery store. But when travelling abroad you always have this feeling that there is something "special" around the corner and you may miss it :)
I guess i am looking for some "right" place to get the "right" stuff. I found a recommendation for Eataly grocery on that site, which may be useful

I also look for a place to buy Riffoni cookware without going all the way to Omegna. Any suggestions? Is there anything similar to E.Dehillering in Paris?
Thanks

Grocery shopping in milan

I am going to Milan in a few days and i will be staying there for only 48 hours. i plan to bring back some good olive oil, vinegars, parmigiano, dried porcini and pasta. But the time will be short, so i need to go to one place to get all the stuff. Can anybosy, please, advise if there is a grocery store that is renowned and well stocked for me to get all that stuff?
Thanks
