A little pot of gold from the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. The crocus sativus flower has to be carefully harvested by hand, and the stigma removed the same day.  Since ancient times saffron has been known for its distinctive colour, pungent taste and medicinal properties. This deep red Lebanese saffron has a beautiful rich colour, a pinch is enough to transform your dishes.  In a crème anglaise, using saffron gives a hint of the exotic, as it does in a rice pudding. Using a small amount of saffron with lentils in a dish created by Sam Clark of Moro, elevates a popular Lebanese way of serving lentils without adding to the cost of the dish. See our recipe section for more.

You can smell the saffron almost before you remove the stopper. We’ve had many compliments from those who have used it in their cooking. It makes a striking present, as it comes with a small cotton drawstring bag made for us by the Tahaddi sewing workshop in Beirut.  We recommend infusing it in hot liquid or water for at least 15 minutes before using. 

Here are some recipes using this delicate spice:-

saffron buns

pangiallo

saffron tagliatelle

saffron rice pudding 

crème anglaise with saffron

saffron infusing
