You can get them both on the top floor of the Rinascenti Department store. Dried porcini you'll get in most supermarkets but not everywhere sells truffles.

La Rinascente food department is extremely overpriced.

Visit a large supermarket (such as an Esselunga) to find an ample selection of dried porcini (which mostly were picked in Eastern Europe though).

Some supermarkets will also take orders for truffles, which would then be a lot cheaper than if you bought them in a deli such as Peck.

Hi vandenhaak

an other idea. There is this special event during this week: www.artigianoinfiera.it/AF2012/index.php

You'll find the food you are looking for.

regards and enjoy Milan!

Peck at central Milan is a very nice store to visit, even if you decide not to buy anything as nothing is cheap there.

There are dozens of Esselunga stores in town, however to reach the one on Via Solari just take #14 tram on Via Torino and you'll be there in to time (make it 20 minutes!).
