The Sacramento Post Office recently cooked up a feast with the dedication of the 2015 Forever Hearts stamps at a food tasting event in partnership with Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts.

The newest Love stamps provided a sugar-free, fat-free, zero-calorie substitute for food lovers.  The two Forever Hearts stamps each feature lacy letters that form the shape of a heart and spell out the word “Forever.” One design has red lettering on a white background; the other is reversed.

To add to the flavor of the event, the previously issued Celebrity Chefs Forever Stamps, honoring James Beard, Julia Child, Joyce Chen, Edna Lewis and Edward (Felipe) Rojas-Lombardi, were also on display. By integrating international ingredients and recipes with American cooking techniques and influence, these chefs introduced new foods and flavors to the American culture. The students from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts prepared samples of the cuisines the celebrity chefs where known for and made a special Forever Hearts Stamp cake and cupcakes. Acting Sacramento Customer Relations Coordinator Candi Cheathon spearheaded the event that generated a sweet turnout. “It was an honor to partner with Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts,” Cheathon said. “The event was a huge success generating great interest in our stamp subjects. We look forward to working with them in the future.”
