The Hellenic Post (ELTA) last month revealed four EuroMed stamps that pay tribute to Greek culinary heritage.
Every year, Mediterranean countries in the EuroMed Postal Community (EuroMed/PUMed) organise a stamp issue based on a common theme. This year’s joint stamp issue is themed “Traditional Gastronomy in the Mediterranean”.
Representing Greece in this year’s competition: oven-baked lamb and potatoes, moussaka, octopus and spanakopita (wild greens pie).
“Cooked food hails from ancient Greece, with recipes that are both simple and complex… World-renowned moussaka, an emblematic dish of this country, is not found anywhere else in the world as we make it. It is a dish that unites the West with the East,” ELTA said in a press release.
All the countries’ stamps are taking part in an online contest. Click on the link here and vote for the Greek entry! The contest ends on October 13.
