The South Africa Post Office will issue a free recipe booklet containing recipes that feature each of the vegetables as the main ingredient to customers who buy six or more stamps on 12 August 2011. The philatelic division of the Post Office is confident that the recipes are fool proof. \”We had great fun testing the recipes,\” said Johan van Wyk of the SA Post Office. \”We included favorite family recipes from our staff members and we love the thought of sharing them with all of South Africa.\”
The stamps, for A4 post, cost R5.00 each or R30.00 for a set of six, which will include the recipe booklet. Will Lourens, a student from the Open Window School of Visual Communication, has illustrated this new set of stamps for the South African Post Office, featuring spinach, beetroot, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage and butternuts, six kinds of nutritious, easy-to-grow vegetables.
