Missoni Family Recipes for the New Hotel Missoni Edinburgh and Kuwait City
September 9, 2009By: Mary Winston Nicklin
Hotel MissoniWe've been starstruck by the new Hotel Missonis (in Edinburgh, and opening soon: Kuwait City). And now we've discovered Jen Murphy's fabulous article in Food & Wine that dishes on "Mama Missoni's Italian Table." Not only has the fashion house decorated the hotels in pure Missoni glam (designer furniture and colorful prints galore), but Missoni has also shared Italian family recipes with the restaurant chefs:

For Cucina Missoni, the hotel restaurant, Rosita sifted through her recipe box and selected her 20 family favorites. Then Giorgio Locatelli, the Michelin-starred chef behind London's Locanda Locatelli restaurant and the hotels' consulting chef, worked with her to update them. Both Rosita and Locatelli are from Northern Italy's Lombardy region and grew up eating versions of the classic dishes now on Cucina Missoni's menu: pan-fried scamorza (a provolone-like cheese) served with two pestos, for instance, and grilled eggplant involtini (rolls) topped with goat cheese vinaigrette.
