French Gastronomy on Stamps (17): Paris


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 seventeenthth of these sheets I’d like to introduce is Paris.

I have doubts as whether Paris can be called a “region”. It has at least the merit ot offer gastronomy from the whole of France for visitors who don’t the time to venture out of its borders.

It counts some of the best tables (for a price) in France.
Paris was the first city in France to serve the ubiquitous Baguette, often called “Parisienne”, after marie-Antoinette introduced it from her native Austria together with the Croissant and cafes.

Did you there is is vineyard inside Paris?

I agree that Paris has a ot to show, although it hasn’t regained the safety of old times. The bistros at least would warrant a long stay!

    1. Dear Jenn!
      You are absolutely right, but the French Post Office follow government’s “suggestions”!
      Obviously, someone wanted Paris separate! LOL
