NOTE: Our British grown saffron is much stronger than most on sale so advised to use less than normally recommended in recipes.

1. Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall Saffron recipes (The Guardian)

Haven’t cooked these yet but the recipes sound delicious.

2. Thomasina Miers Catalan Fish Stew

In this recipe the saffron is optional but why not add a little opulance to this dish. The saffron flavours are perfect with fish and has been a complimentary partner through time. If you love fish then this dish is a must.

3. James Martin Lamb Shank Tagine with Tabouleh

A lovely meat dish with a nice kick of spice. If cooking with saffron you definately need to try a lamb tagine which I reckon is my most favourite dish to cook with our lovely Cheshire Saffron. The saffron works wonderfully well with honeys and dried fruits such as apricots and figs and therefore is a perfect match for a lovely tagine!

4. James Martin Saffron Cake

The previous recipe feeds nicely into this by James Martin Cornish Saffron Cake a true classic and a must for anyone wanting to give saffron a try.

5. Saffron Custard Tart (Who said you have to use saffron in rice!)

A lovely dessert a must try. Stunning!

Love a good Biryani!!!
