Celebrity Chefs - USPS Forever Stamps

       This week, I received this strip of five forever stamps, Celebrity Chefs, which I ordered on USPS.com last week. These five stamps are emblazoned with the most famous chefs in the U.S. I only know Julia Child because her life was made into a movie, Julie and Julia.

 By bringing such quintessential dishes as shrimp and grits and roast chicken to the plates of trendy restaurants, Edna Lewis (1916–2006) showed her fellow Americans the vitality of Southern cooking.

  Through cookbooks, a trailblazing television show, and her landmark restaurants in the Boston area, Joyce Chen (1917–1994) became one of America’s greatest popularizers of Chinese food. She is also credited with introducing the flat-bottom wok to American kitchens.

 Teacher and author James Beard (1903–1985) avidly fostered a more vibrant food culture in the United States. He was a passionate advocate of local ingredients and markets, and his popular books covered everything from seafood to bread.

 Julia Child (1912–2004) demystified French cuisine in the United States. Her extremely popular television shows and cookbooks made her synonymous with American cooking for more than 40 years, and she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2003.


      

        In the movie of Julie and Julia, Meryl Streep portrayed Julia Child incredibly very well.
