French Gastronomy on Stamps (1): Alsace


France has issued many stamps on food (not foodstamps!) on her own gastronomy for quite some time.
A new series will be issued on April 25th and wil be printed in the form of mini-sheets dedicated to a particular region with stamps, pics and explanations.
With the first of these sheets I’d like to introduce Alsace.
One can see the following specialties:
-Baeckeoffe/the name means the “baker’s oven” in Alsatian as people brought to the baker to be cooked for three hours.
-Ginger Bread/Pain d’Epices
-Munster Cheese

Now do you know other specialties from Alsace?

Please check the new postings at:
sake, shochu and sushi
