Fashion Forward Food: The Missoni Family Cookbook


Bring a touch of ITalian elegance to your table this summer with the Missoni Family Cookbook. 

Since the 1970s, Missoni has revolutionised knitwear and in doing so created an image of easy glamour and elegance. The iconic fashion house’s zig-zag motif is globally recognised and adored, as is the sophisticated but relaxed lifestyle the brand is modelled around.

The Missoni family is renowned for their love of entertaining and the infamous dinner parties they host during Milan fashion week. It is this family passion that inspired Francesco Maccapani Missoni – Son of Creative Director Angela Missoni and Grandson of founders Tai and Rosita Missoni – to create the Missoni Family Cookbook.

The beautifully designed cover will be a bright, fashionable addition to your kitchen shelves, while the recipes inside will be a treat for your family and friends - the book claims to have recipes for every occasion and for any number of guests.



A Focus on Family and Tradition

Francesco has collected these family secrets over the years before compiling them into this book of recipes that are as unique as the Missoni style itself.  Some of them even have personal names attached because they are “emotionally connected to certain individuals and events”. This is a book about preserving family traditions and nourishing the ones you love as much as it is a cookbook.


La Bella Vita!

The vast array of recipes – the likes of Gnocchi Verdi, Zucchine alla Parmigiana – and mouth watering flavours will make this your go-to summer cookbook. We know we can’t wait to get our hands on it and start throwing some Missoni-style dinner parties of our own. If you’re really feeling la Bella Vita, purchase some Missoni Home plates to serve your culinary masterpieces on!
