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. Food and cooking are his passions, with a strong emphasis on family traditions, sustainable sources, local produce, and fresh seasonal ingredients.

They didn’t just revolutionise knitwear; they forged a lifestyle that, like their fashion, blends elegance with enthusiasm and spontaneity with sophistication. 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.

Missoni food makes my soul smile,’ says musician (and longtime Missoni kitchen table regular) Quincy Jones in the introduction. Now, the knights of knitwear have swapped the atelier for the kitchen for a new family cookbook dedicated to home-styled Italian favourites. He now heads a startup based in Milan and is, as they affectionately say, una buona forchetta (a gourmand). br>
The Missoni Family Cookbook features a forward by close family friend Quincy Jones, whose career has encompassed the roles of composer, record producer, artist, film producer, arranger, conductor, instrumentalist, TV producer, magazine founder, multimedia entrepreneur, author, and humanitarian.

The masters of zig-zag have swapped their signature pattern for eye-catching red-and-white checkerboard on the front cover, though the storied criss-crossing design wiggles its way through the collection of recipes: thrown nonchalantly across tables, encircling the rim of a porcelain plate. Missoni style is recognized and admired all over the world and is collected by fashionistas and museums alike. Francesco Maccapani Missoni (the son of the eponymous fashion house’s creative director Angela Missoni) collects family recipes, and as it turns out, its cuisine is just as singular as its style. These days, in addition to his extensive non-profit work with NGOs such as Unicef, Jones manages and mentors a roster of young musicians. Expect crisp spring salads (the ‘Asparagus a la Milanese’ is of particular note), and no-expense-spared desserts – don’t miss the Missonis’ ‘One and Only’ chocolate pudding.Whether they are serving a meal for 20 or 200, all feature family recipes curated for the season and occasion. 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 colours.
