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.
The dinner eaten every day by elBulli’s workers
What does Ferran Adrià eat for dinner — and how did he feed the hard-working staff at his fabled elBulli, the first ‘destination restaurant’, nestled on the Mediterranean coast north of Barcelona? The Family Meal features a month’s worth of three-course menus created for and by Ferran and his team — meals that nourished and energized them for each evening’s service.
When Adrià first offered these secrets up to home chefs, they were incredibly well received. The book remains one of Phaidon’s all-time bestselling food titles, with more than 150,000 copies sold in the decade following its publication. It’s the first — and only — book of everyday recipes by the world’s most influential chef, now with a brand-new foreword by Ferran himself.
Serial dinner-party hosts will find a new way to show off tried-and-test dishes when social distancing ends, while those a little less used to having people over, or who've gotten out of the habit, will love the way Adrià and his team guides readers though the entire preparation of the meal, minute-by-minute, enabling you to nip in and out of the kitchen with enviably agility. Available now at MENDO.
