Saffron is the most precious spice in the world.


True saffron is produced only by the saffron crocus and consists of the delicate, thread-like stigma of the flower.  Each blossom produces only three stigmas, which must be gathered by hand. After harvesting & drying, the stigmas achieve their vivid bright orange-red color. This uniform color is typical of only the highest quality saffron, such as “The Gathering of Saffron”. Select Grade Spanish saffron is the highest grade saffron, far superior to saffron produced in other regions.


"The Gathering of Saffron" Select Grade Spanish Saffron is considered by many to be the finest Saffron in the world. "The Gathering," as it is known, is labelled with an embossed Black Seal, signifying its purity and quality. Saffron is highly prized across the world and is an important ingredient in Mediterranean, Indian and Asian cuisines. The delicate, but inimitable taste and aroma of genuine saffron imparts its distinctive flavor and vivid yellow color to many dishes from Indian pilafs to Spanish paella, French Bouillabaisse and the celebrated Italian dish, Risotto alla Milanese.

Cauliflower Risotto with Saffron
Risotto, the comfort food that can be elevated to gourmet standard with the addition of special ingredients! The naturally creamy texture of a risotto is the result of slow, patient cooking - adding the liquid incrementally and allowing the rice to absorb it slowly. The result is a wonderful texture and the kind of flavor that develops only with time. This risotto is flavored and colored with saffron, the mysterious, pungent and beautiful spice that is so highly prized by chefs.
