This is a very easy dish to make but the results are luxurious. Sweet crabmeat, creamy mascarpone and that inimitable taste of saffron. For a creamier sauce you could use more mascarpone.
Ingredients (serves 1)
Pinch of saffron threads
60g crabmeat (white or mix if white and...
Monzese Risotto, Risotto alla Monzese in Italian. As the word says, is typical of the city of Monza, near Milan.
This Risotto is nothing but a close relative of Milanese Risotto that beside saffron has the addition of pork sausage called Luganega.
Serves 4, Preparation time 20 mins + 2 h for...
This is a great way to make a low fat potato bake. Its an easy recipe to assemble but you do need to allow at least an hour for the potatoes to cook through in the oven. This quantity is enough to fill a small baking dish or tin (approx. .5 litres/1 pt capacity). There are approximately 150...

In Persian cooking, barberries which have a sharp taste, similar to cranberries are often paired with saffron, particularly in chicken and rice dishes. So, for a festive alternative I thought using cranberries might work well with turkey and saffron. If you don’t like turkey you could substitute...

Hello all ,
i am new to this thread,
i just have a simple question. do you know guys know what saffron is? do you really use it often? if any of you guys have bought it, would you please share your experience?
This is an easy recipe and totally delicious. My favourite way to cook chicken breasts and keep them moist is ‘en papillote’. You really can’t go wrong here with this straightforward recipe. The honey adds a lovely sweet taste which is not overpowering and compliments the mineral, earthy taste...
This recipe is from Flavours of Spain: A gastronomic journey by Jan Read & Maite Manjón (1978). The book is partly a travelogue and partly a history of gastronomy in Spain (Jan Read was an historian). The book is packed full of detailed facts about the various regions of Spain and their food &...
I've been cooking with saffron on and off for years. I just got some at Whole Foods and noticed that some of the threads become clear, devoid of any color. In addition, it turned the water green. Is this normal?
A great way to use up stale bread - this tray bake is very easy to make. It would work equally well using chicken thighs and/or legs. The bread is a delight because it becomes crispy in some parts juice laden in others and the roasted garlic cloves are lovely to squidge out on the plate. I...
Cooking 'en papillote' is so easy and virtually foolproof. Its the perfect way to cook chicken breast so that it stays moist. Using a culinary blow torch (every kitchen needs one) adds a beautiful charred flavour and improves the appearance of the finished dish.
Ingredients (per person, for...
Home made soft cheese is super easy to make. I think it is sometimes called Farmer's Cheese in the USA. You need just 2 ingredients (milk and vinegar) and the magic happens! Usually any flavourings are added after straining off the whey - but as I wanted the saffron to heat up to colour and...
This dish sounds complicated but is really rather easy to make. Its pretty well equal quantities (in size) of fish and vegetables plus some spices. The marinating of the fish is important to add depth of flavour.* The rest is really simply simmering things in one pan. You can serve this with...
This recipe is really easy to do and looks pretty. Kewra water is made from the extract distilled from the flower of the Pandanus plant and is very aromatic. It can be easily obtained from Indian stores in the UK and some supermarkets. If you can’t find it you could use rose water. For a...
