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.
Cutting out meat doesn’t mean you have to miss out on some of the best dishes within this hugely popular national cuisine
Recipes range from classic dishes that are traditionally vegetarian to contemporary dishes that introduce ingredients borrowed from outside Italy’s culinary culture. The book is easy to navigate, thanks to its recipe icons, while gorgeous specially commissioned photographs bring its delicious dishes to life.
The brilliant new images come courtesy of the chef turned photographer Simon Bajada; the layout is by the acclaimed international design agency, Pentagram; this new edition is edited by our Italian-born publisher, Emilia Terragni; and the book is even printed in Italy. You have to admit, that’s a tempting combination, whether you’re a committed vegetarian, a meat reducer, or just someone who appreciates the deeply rooted place of vegetables within Italian cuisine.
