Gastronomy Gibraltar – 2005

A Set of Four Stamps were released on 31 Mar 2005 on theme Gastronomy. All stamps are of 47 Pence each. Gastronomy reflects the diverse origins of a country through recipes passed down through
generations, as is especially the case in Gibraltar. While there is both Spanish and British influence, the ethnic origins of most Gibraltarian recipes are mainly Genoese (Italy), Maltese and Portuguese.

The ‘Torta de acelga’ – spinach pie from Genoa, Italy.

The ‘Robalo a la parilla’ recipe – grilled Sea Bass comes from Portugal.

The ‘Rolitos de ternera’ – veal ‘birds’ from Malta

Popular sweet ‘Sherry Trifle’ from Britain.

A First Day cover is listed.
