Saffron – the golden addition to your dishes

Saffron, known as “red gold,” is a precious spice whose story dates back to ancient times of the Persian Empire. Today, it conquers the hearts of gourmets worldwide with its intense aromas that add depth and complexity to every dish. Its luxurious red color and specific aromatic notes make saffron an essential ingredient in traditional Mediterranean and Middle Eastern specialties. Its mildly bitter yet warm and earthy notes, complemented by floral and honey tones, will make your savory and sweet dishes unforgettable.


Nestled in the aromas of luxurious spices and saffron, Sheera is an irresistible Indian delicacy that combines ground almonds with butter, saffron, and milk. By combining these ingredients, you get a velvety dessert and a harmony of flavors that make every bite a unique experience.


To prepare authentic Spanish paella, heat olive oil and sauté finely chopped black and white onions and bell pepper until softened. Then add rice, fish stock, and saffron for a distinctive color and aroma. When the rice is almost cooked, add shellfish such as mussels or clams and cover the pan to allow the shells to open. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges for extra freshness.


This Indian delicacy represents the perfect combination of softness, sweetness, and rich aromas. In a bowl, mix cottage cheese with a little flour and form balls. Then, in a pot, boil milk with saffron, sugar, and cardamom. When the milk boils, add the cheese balls and simmer for another 10 minutes, then let cool and absorb the flavors. Sprinkle with chopped almonds or pistachios before serving, and enjoy this sweet specialty.

Whether in traditional dishes or modern culinary delicacies, saffron will enhance your enjoyment in every bite!
