About the Gastronomy on Stamps Study Unit

The Gastronomy on Stamps Study Unit was founded in 2018 and is now in its fourth year of serving topical collectors interested in stamps related to food, gastronomy, food crops, cooking, etc. The Philatelic Gourmet​ October 2020 issue contained an interesting article about Oktoberfest by Lee Strayer; information about the new Euromed Postal “Traditional Gastronomy of the Mediterranean,” by David Kent and David Wolfersberger; and a discussion of new issues by David Kent. The next issue will be published in April 2021.
