For those (probably older) folks who still use snail mail…

The backside of Celebrity Chefs

The backside of Celebrity Chefs

Nice photos/portraits of the five chefs (James Beard, Joyce Chen, Julia Child, Edna Lewis and Felipe Rojas-Lombardi) adorn the stamps with the back of the sheet sporting bios of each of them. It’s a nice variety of cuisines represented, and with the tradition that to be depicted on a US stamp a “real” person has to be deceased (even though this is no longer a hard-and-fast rule), this is certainly a good list of some of the first celeb chefs, but I think that Justin Wilson also belongs here…

Despite that little nit-pick on my part, I did scurry down to the local Post Office to get my hands on a sheet of these on the first day they were on sale!

So, keep an eye on your mail, you never know when Julia or Edna may show up in your box!
