Campari spritz, home-made gnocci and colourful tableware – how to throw a Missoni dinner party

Francesco Maccapani Missoni’s new book unwraps the Italian fashion dynasty’s rich history of food and entertaining

Francesco Maccapani Missoni is the son of Missoni’s creative director, Angela Missoni and a collector of the family recipes. Here, he shares how to throw a dinner party in true Missoni style.

Spend more on less

‘Italian food is simple, because the ingredients are so good. For tomato sauce you just need olive oil, fresh tomatoes, garlic and a little salt, but you have to spend money on good quality ingredients. Living in the US, I found food in the supermarket looked nice on the shelf, but everything tasted like cucumber, and good olive oil was like liquid gold.’

Make it colourful

‘My mother and grandmother treat the table like a composition, with lots of patterned cloths, candles, flowers and glassware – it doesn’t matter if things don’t match. My mother is a compulsive collector of dishes that she finds at antique markets in Paris, Rome and Mexico. When we go away to a new place, she’s like a kid in a candy store.’

Keep welcome drinks simple

‘When guests arrive, I’ll serve them a glass of Spumante [Italian sparkling wine] or a Campari spritz – it’s not as sweet as an Aperol spritz, so it’s more refreshing before dinner.’

Always make extra

‘If I’m cooking for ten people, I’ll buy enough food for 15 – you never want to run out. We’ve always been a family who invites people home, instead of going out to a restaurant. Now, I cook for a group of friends every Friday or Saturday night at my house in Milan. It’s never formal – we put a big bowl of pasta on the table and everyone helps themselves. The first dish I learned to make was gnocchi with creamy gorgonzola.
