In 2016 Sweden issued a group of five stamps depicting food.
Sc. 2772d was a plate of Mediterranean shish kebab, which I assume is showing lamb, and Sc. 2772e featured a hamburger crowded with vegetable fixings. I assume the burger is real beef and not 'better than beef' or other alternative....

Hi Linus, The story of the Säubrenner (Sowburning) Festival of Wittlich goes back to the 14th century when the town was attacked and one evening the guard could not find the bolt for closing the town gate. He used a rübe (a turnip which might have looked like one in the photo) instead of the bolt of oak. A sow came along, ate the rübe and the gate opened to the invaders. After having survived the attack, the townspeople rounded up and roasted the pigs in a great feast which is to this day celebrated in August. Photo of the bronze sow at the door to the town hall.

Thank you very much for telling me the story of the Säubrenner (Sowburning) Festival of Wittlich. I had never heard of it before. I continue to be amazed at all the things you can learn from your stamps, even the common ones, and the people on this forum who freely share their knowledge.

Linus

I really love the "Brains 25c" postcard. And the misspelling of tomato as "tomatoe" only adds to the overall kitchiness.

Bratwurst makes an appearance on this New Zealand issue (S.G. #2323). Stamp is from the April 3, 2000 "Kiwiana II" sheetlet of 10 different designs.

AUSTRIA

Scott 1703

Stamp is one in a series called " Austrians at work"
showing a server and a chef.
Not sure if it's a roasted duck or pheasant on the tray.

GREENLAND - KALAALLIT NUNAAT

Scott 147

The men bringing home the bacon....I mean the walrus.
The women and children are cheering now that the clan has
enough food for at least a month.

While this stamp doesn't depict meat, the building featured is labelled as an abattoir.
From the independence issue of four stamps by Botswana, 30 September 1966. Scott #2.

I stumbled on this round stamp from the "Delicious Japan" series which depicts a bowl of Hakata Ramen, a specialty of the city of Fukuoka, on Japan's western island of Kyushu. This is a pork bone broth with an egg, noodles, some toppings and -- drum roll -- some pork or ham. Looks almost like Canadian bacon to me.
Japan 2020 Yvert 9723.

Here are two entries from 1994 Spain:

Sc. 2770 shows a 1941 Salvador Dali painting entitled "Soft Self-Portrait with Fried Bacon." The bacon is fairly recognizable.



In the same series of Dali paintings was Sc. 2766 showing his 1933 painting "Portrait of Gala with Two Pork Chops on Her Shoulder." Not sure how Gala feels about her pork chops - they do not look nearly as tasty as the bacon in the stamp above.
