a gift of saffron
my friend and fellow food blogger amy gifted me a precious box of the best saffron in the world which she had brought to london from her recent trip to barcelona. the place where she bought the saffron is a century old food shop called e&a gispert which i'm told is a must see for any foodie visiting this spanish city that i'm just do dying to go to. between the architecture, the food and the thriving shopping, barcelona sounds like a very exciting city to check out. and amy think i would like it more than any other european city and that i must go there as soon as possible!
amy asked me what i would use the saffron in. she uses it for risottos and fish dishes. i tend to use saffron in paella, shrikhand (an indian yogurt dessert laced with saffron), badam kheer and hyderabadi vegetable biryani to name a few.
i'd love to hear what your favourite uses of saffron are. do tell as i have the best quality saffron at my disposal and am looking for new recipe ideas.
