The Missonis are well-known for their colorful, vivid and dynamic vision of life which they all share and express so lovely through fashion. But they do have another passion – the love for cooking! It’s been in the making for seven years and now it has finally seen the light – The Missoni Family Cook Book at Assouline Editions– a gathering of 130 family recipes passed down for four generations.

Francesco Maccapani Missoni, together with his gorgeous grandmother, Rosita Missoni and with the help of his mother, Angela Missoni, came up with the idea, only from a strong desire to preserve family traditions. “The idea was for everyone in the family to have their own recipe book from the last two generations. In 2013, my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was 80 at the time, so it made me start thinking that in the future when she passes away, these traditions could get lost,” Francesco said to WWD.

People buy Missoni to be part of our lives, to feel like they’re part of the tribe. They relate to the brand because they can see we are simple people who enjoy life. We maintain a balance between the real world and fashion,” said Maccapani Missoni.

We are really seasonal. At home, we only use fresh, local, seasonal produce, and most herbs and vegetables come from our garden,” says Franscesco Maccapani Missoni.

Sicily Is My Love – Dolce & Gabbana + Smeg Line -Sicillian Cuisine

Preparing food has never been so exciting and of course, colourful! Milan Design Week hosts some of the newest items born out of the collaboration of two giants: Smeg and Dolce & Gabbana.  Inspired by the history and tradition of Southern Italy and the Isle of Sicily, the renewed collection of “Sicily is My Love” is completely dedicated to the homeland of Domenico and Dolce, charming Sicily – painted ovens, refrigerators and hoods, toasters, coffee makers, mixers – all the bright Sicily can be in your kitchen if you want to. If you don’t have the opportunity to go on the holiday in the south of Italy so often, then Italy comes to you, and it brings the most beautiful sicillian patterns one can imagine – huge lemons, tender blue ornaments, bunches of grapes and, of course, flowers. You can see the new items at the exhibition which will be held in Milan until April 22.

Fashionable Macaroni – Dolce & Gabbana Designer Pasta

Pastificio Di Martino Dolce & Gabbana

It seems that after the Spring/Summer show when the pasta theme was revealed, Dolce & Gabbana continue their tribute to the Italian excellency. A delicious partnership between two “Made In Italy” giants – the iconic fashion house and family run pasta brand, Pastificio Di Martino – spaghetti, penne and cannelloni  a la italiano. Now you can host a super fashionable dinner for your family and friends but consider one pack costs $ 110, in which case I can’t help but acknowledge that the days where “pasta for dinner” called for little more than 500g of pasta which you can pick up for 80 cents and chopped tomatoes, are long gone. Buon appetito!
