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.
From simple starters – the burrata with blood orange, coriander seeds and lavender oil – to more involved main courses and puddings, there is something here for every meal and every occasion. Whether you’re looking for a quick brunch or an impressive and complete restaurant-style dinner party, this book is another gem to add to your Ottolenghi collection.
A collection of recipes which will inspire and delight
All recipes in Nopi: The Cookbook have been adapted and made possible for the home cook to recreate at home. They range in their degree of complexity so there is something for all cooks.
There are dishes that long-time Ottolenghi fans will be familiar with – a starter of aubergine with black garlic, for example, or the roasted squash with sweet tomatoes – as well as many dishes which will stretch the home cook as they produce some of the restaurant’s signature dishes at home, such as Beef brisket croquettes or Persian love rice. With chapters for starters & sides, fish, meat & vegetable mains, puddings, brunch, condiments and cocktails, a menu can easily be devised for any occasion and purpose.
Whether you’re a regular at the Nopi restaurant and want to know the secret to your favourite dish – the baked blue cheesecake, the beef brisket, the twice-cooked baby chicken – or are an Ottolenghi fan who wants to see how it’s done in the restaurant kitchen, this is a collection of recipes which will inspire and delight.
