Our history
In far 1880 Angelo Cornali opens in San Colombano al Lambro a pastryshop and after moving to Codogno at the beginning of the century he opens a smart coffee bar-pastryshop at number 71 in Roma Street. Very soon it becomes a meeting place for the respectable people of the place: the doctor, the veterinary, the marshal are habitual customers. But the most faithful is the mayor, a pleasant character as much distinguished as greedy.

Every day he goes to his friend Angelo to taste his delicious fancy cakes. To pay homage right to him, Angelo Cornali creates the “Biscotto Codogno”, a masterpiece of excellence and genuineness. That biscuit, that would deserve best the name of fancy cake, is given national and international prizes.
In the same period the production of “Cotognata” (cotogno apples jam in cubes) starts and it is appreciated by the customers. The dynasty of the Cornali family goes on with the son Mario and the nephew Giuseppe. Nowadays the sons of this last one, Carlo and Luigi, carry on with the activity. In the sixties a new pastryshop in Casalpusterlengo joined the one in Codogno and it also started the production of “Calissoni”. In 1983 the shop was renovated and for that occasion, to celebrate the centenary, the “Biscotto Codogno” filled with chocolate was created.
In 1989 Carlo presents the Saint Biagio Cake, dedicated to the patron saint of Codogno, in a national competition and is awarded some prizes by a qualified jury. So that prize has to be added to the countless ones of his predecessors.
The name “Cornali” is well known also outside the borders Codogno, but nothing has changed: the style of the shop is the old one exactly like the love and the passion of Angelo Cornali in making that good and genuine biscuit.

Well, we can only invite you to taste our products hoping to have satisfied also the most demanding palates.
