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 seventh of these sheets I’d like to introduce is Bretagne.
This is most Cetic region of France and Celtic language is taught at all levels from kindergarten to university. It is a land battered by the seas and the winds and its people are among the hardiest in France.
A land with many legends (Lancelot, witches and so on), it was an independent until in the late Middle Ages.
It is renown for some of the best butter in France, but also for, as seen on this particular sheet:
-Lobsters, especially the “blue tail/Queue bleue” and all kinds of seafood.
-Galettes and Crepes.
-Kouig Anan.

It is a region worth visiting with its many islands still retaining their original wilderness and magnificent natural environments! Ask the British!
