Assouline Missoni Family Cookbook
The Missoni family lives life in color. They didn’t just revolutionize knitwear; they forged a lifestyle that, like their fashion, blends elegance with enthusiasm and spontaneity with sophistication. Missoni style is recognized and admired all over the world and is collected by fashionistas and museums alike. This same streak of easy glamour also inspires Missoni family’s entertaining, and their dinner parties have become one of the most coveted invitations of fashion week. Lush and informal at the same time, a Missoni feast is not just a kaleidoscope of style with four generations of family wearing Missoni — it’s a kaleidoscope of tastes, scents, and colors.
And whether the meal is for twenty or two hundred, it always features family recipes curated for the season and for the occasion, recipes which have now become legendary. And just as Missoni fans around the world collect the brand’s iconic zigzags, Francesco Maccapani Missoni, the son of Missoni’s creative director, Angela Missoni, collects family recipes — and as it turns out, their cuisine is just as singular as their style. Francesco has a healthy respect for tradition, and with The Missoni Family Cookbook, he chronicles the Missoni culinary tradition, making these delicious, well-guarded family recipes available to the home cook for the first time. This book invites you right into the home of the family known so well through fashion so that you can join the Missonis a tavola.
