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.
Haute-cuisine pastry entirely devoted to flowers
After the success of his books Fruit: The Art of Pastry and Opera Pâtisserie, French pastry sensation Cédric Grolet has brought out a new book of haute-cuisine pastry entirely devoted to flowers.
Playing with colors, shapes, and ingredients, the chef finds flowers are an infinite source of inspiration. He combines gourmet recipes with the artistry of piping to create original cakes and tarts in the shape of flowers. The recipes are simple and can be made with minimal equipment–a pastry bag and tip is sufficient. All that is required is patience and skill. Guided by illustrated, step-by-step directions, you will be able to express your own creativity brought to life through the ingredients, whether a Chantilly cream or a ganache.
By piping uniform curves, you will be able to shape a flower, one that is different each time. Discover more than 80 recipes for cakes, tarts, and entremets, presented by season, in a wide range of edible flowers. The rest is up to you!
