The Philatelic Gourmet

The Journal of the Gastronomy on Stamps Study Unit

​​​​​​​Volume 4, #1 of ​The Philatelic Gourmet has been sent to the printers and will be mailed out shortly. For members that have elected to have electronic delivery, a copy should be in your inbox.

The first issue of the year leads off with an excellent article on licorice by Al Raddi. We continue our examination of the Postal Union of the Mediterranean’s 2020 common theme of Gastronomy of the Mediterranean. David Kent explores new issues including a tasty recipe for Banana Po’e from the French Polynesia Post office. Also inside is our regular installment of study unit news and a checklist/new issue update.
