For the first time, the U.S Postal Service will offer celebrity chef “Forever” stamps featuring five culinary legends, including the ‘Grand Dame of Southern Cooking,’ Edna Lewis.

Going on sale on Friday, September 26 and currently available for pre-order, stamps including the warm smile of Edna Lewis and her culinary counterparts, James Beard, Julia Childs, Joyce Chen and Felipe Rojas-Lomabardi, will soon be used for the postage needs of esteemed culinarians and food enthusiasts alike.

To properly unveil the celebrity chef stamp series, the U.S Postal Service will host an event in Chicago at Park Grill restaurant. This event is both free and open to the public.

In the coming weeks, we of the Edna Lewis Foundation look forward to sharing news of our own celebratory events to properly acknowledge this great honor.
