20 May La Dolce Cucina
The beloved fashion house of Missoni, currently led by creative director Angela Missoni, is just as famous for their family kitchen as they are for their vibrant knitwear.
As a way of preserving the wondrous dishes (Spinach and Ricotta Gnocchi anyone?) that have become legendary in their entertaining, Angela’s son, Francesco Maccapani Missoni, has spent the last six years compiling treasured recipes to share with a wider audience. Now they have been brought together in a beautiful new cookbook, The Missoni Family Cookbook.
With a foreword by Quincy Jones and featuring luscious photography, the cookbook is not only an ode to an Italian family and their entertaining style, but also an encouragement to readers to cook at home and invite others to savor what they have prepared. With candid family snapshots and anecdotal missives, readers are invited to experience what the fashion set has long known—the Missoni’s know how to make family and guests feel welcome and well fed!
What could be more Italian than that?
The Missoni Family Cookbook is available through Assouline and other booksellers.
