collectible of the day: recipe booklet


Today we feature another unusual MINI promotional item from Germany.  Shown is the “ABGEFAHRENE GERICHTE.” (translates to “COOL DISHES”) recipe booklet.  The small booklet measures about 4.75″ wide by 1.5″ high and is bound by a metal stud at the corner, on which the 24 double-sided pages pivot.

The translated introduction page says:

Four types. Four characters. Four menus. Each its own. Your way. But always to the last step. Delicious!

The four MINI models promoted are:

  • The New MINI One. (silver section)
  • The New MINI Cooper. (red section)
  • The New MINI Cooper D. (white section)
  • The New MINI Cooper S. (blue section)

For each MINI model section, pages include a menu and recipes for an apéritif, appetizer, main dish, dessert, and digestif.
