Norden-stamps 2016 1/2 Nordic food culture

The series consists of beautiful stamps from each of the eight Nordic Posts. Bolatta Silis-Høegh has created the inspiration for POST Greenland’s two stamps in this Nordic stamp issue.

The joint Nordic series, which is published every two years, has this year the common theme of ’Food culture’. POST Greenland’s two 2016 Nordic Stamps each depict popular culinary specialties from Greenland: Ammassat and mattak (raw whale skin).

The small ammassak come to Greenland’s waters in large schools throughout the year and may be eaten cooked or dried. Whale mattak is the greatest delicacy in Greenland. It is packed with, inter alia, Vitamin C and tastes like an avocado but is, inversely, very tough. The stamp features mattak from a narwhal.
