Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Alain Ducasse, iconic chef and author of Simple Nature, presents a collection of recipes from his worldwide network of French bistros—Allard (in Paris), Aux Lyonnais (Paris), and Benoît (Paris, New York, and Tokyo).
A relaxing, convivial alternative to haute cuisine, bistro cooking most closely approaches the British gastropub or Italian osteria tradition, with less formal dishes served with local wine. Ducasse and his team of chefs have reengineered these casual classics with a contemporary eye, giving them subtle twists and a lighter, healthier profile.
