Indian themes on foreign stamps

Indian Cuisine - Goan food on Portuguese stamps

Portugal Post issued a set of six stamps featuring Bebinca - Sabores da Lusophony (Flavours of Portuguese) on 5 June 2009. On one stamp Bebinca, also known as bibik or bebinka, is a type of pudding and a traditional Goan dessert is depicted.

Food 1

Date of Issue : 5 June 2009

Bebinca, also known as bibik or bebinka, is a type of pudding and a traditional Goan dessert. The ingredients include plain flour, sugar, ghee (clarified butter) and coconut milk.

 

Food 2

The dessert has to be baked in layers and traditionally has 16 layers. The dessert is very common in Goan cuisine. In Portugal, it is also a common dessert in Goan restaurants.

In Goa, Portuguese is spoken by an increasingly small minority, it is seen as the 'language of grandparents' because it is no longer taught in schools, nor is it an official language.

Food 4

Goa's national language Konkani, however, has picked up some Portuguese vocabulary, especially Konkani spoken by Catholics.

In addition, Indian Catholics,  often bear Portuguese surnames, despite having no Portuguese background themselves; a relic of the influence that Portugal had in India.

Food 3

Over the centuries, traditions linked to taste have also contributed to this cultural matrix.  Portugal brought new flavours to Europe, viz. spices, but also exported ancestral flavours to Brazil, Africa and Orient, such as deep-fried flavours, stews and desserts. These stamps bring forth interesting examples of the mutual influence of the Portuguese gastronomy on the gastronomy of people from other continents of Asia & Africa

It is common place today to state that gastronomy is an expression of the culture and heritage of the people. This  set of stamps dedicated to the gastronomy of various Portuguese speaking countries, a forgotten but relevant feature of the deep relations that have marked the meeting between Portugal and the peoples from other latitudes.
