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.
It’s always Sunday in Wil Demandt’s kitchen. Partly due to his Limburg roots, what Wil cooked in his restaurant was quite normal: an animal was slaughtered and then all parts were processed in his exceptionally Burgundian dishes. From head to tail, as it is called today.
'Wil is a cook from a picture book, the embodiment of bonhomie and generosity'
You can safely say that Wil is an old-fashioned cook. One who likes to personally guarantee that his guests have a sparkling evening. Good food, a good glass, preferably with an animated conversation – all aspects of le plaisir de la table. His restaurant Bordewijk grew into an institution for bons gourmands who did not want antics on their plate, but tasty food of refined simplicity – Wil has an earthy hand in cooking.
To this day Wil is busy cooking, eating and reading and writing about food. In Altijd Zondag, edited by Jonah Freud, he has written down his inimitable legacy once and for all.
