If there were a royal family in the Italian fashion world, it would be the Missonis: four generations stylishly decked out in colorful knitwear featuring the instantly recognizable Missoni zigzag. While Missoni clothes have been handed down and treasured by fashionistas since the 1970s and are covetable and prized, Francesco Maccapani Missoni, the son of designer Angela Missoni, feels the same way about the family's distinctive recipes. Their cuisine, it turns out, is as singular as their style. Francesco has a healthy respect for tradition and has collected his parents' and grandparents' favorites. For the rst time, The Missoni Family Cookbook chronicles the Missoni culinary tradition, making these delicious, well-guarded family recipes available to the home cook. Beyond the glitz and glamour of the family known so well through fashion, you can now be at home--and a tavola--with the Missonis.
