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.
Amsterdam’s culinary scene is thriving, yet it’s almost impossible to keep up with so many new restaurants opening their doors. After years of tasting dishes and reviewing pretty much every restaurant in Amsterdam, food journalists Famke & Floor van Praag have compiled their definitive list of all-time favourites.
The 22 restaurants and culinary cafés have been selected because the food is so utterly delicious, but also because the wine list is perfect, the staff leave nothing to chance, and the vibe is outstanding.
Amsterdam’s most special restaurants together in an iconic cookbook
The cookbook is a genuine homage to these uncompromising places, with stunning photography by Petrovsky & Ramone.
It includes 44 favourite recipes, from Rijsel’s rotisserie chicken and Toscanini’s mouth-watering mackerel pasta to fabulous vegetable creations by BAK, Choux, Entrepot and Bar Centraal. The English-language Shortlist Amsterdam is a completely updated version of two highly acclaimed
Dutch Shortlists: the first covering the city’s best restaurants and the second its top culinary cafés.
