Joeri’s favorite books
Meet Joeri Worm
When Joeri Worm isn’t running the streets and parks of Amsterdam, he’s running the store like no one else could. As a Willem de Kooning Graphic Design graduate, Joeri started at MENDO as an art-director. In the years that followed, Joeri became MENDO’s third co-owner and also became responsible for most of the operational work there is to be done. Joeri is the best at making sure our books end up at the places they belong.
‘I was triggered and inspired by my colleague Gunifort, who told me the story behind this great artist. The book is very well made – I can get very happy of details, like the textures on the book’s letters. The book itself is, apart from its content, also a piece of art.’
Fäviken is an exclusive insight into one of the world’s most interesting restaurants: Fäviken Magasinet in Sweden. Narrative texts, photographs and recipes explain head chef Magnus Nilsson’s remarkable approach to sourcing and cooking with ingredients that are farmed and hunted in the immediate vicinity of the restaurant, and how he creates a seasonal cycle of menus based on them.
‘As a big tennis fanatic, I’m happy that we sell a tennis book. It’s great to see how a tennis shoe can evolve to a fashion icon. Because the makers collaborated with Pharrell, this is an interesting book that gives a great perspective on the world of today.’
Shortlist Amsterdam Culinaire Cafés
‘After part one, I can now start with a fresh restaurant list. The pictures are beautiful and due to the fact the book also features recipes, your appetite is even more whet.’
