Secrets of Saffron: The Vagabond Life of the World’s Most Seductive Spice
Pat Willard. Over thousands of years, saffron has perfumed the halls of Crete’s palaces, made Cleopatra more alluring, & driven crusaders & German peasants to their deaths. Nothing more than the dried stigmas of the autumn-flowering purple crocus, saffron remains tantalizingly exotic. Resistant to modern technology, the fragile blossoms must still be gathered by hand from the ancient fields of Iran, Greece, Italy, southern France, & Spain. Willard takes us through the landscapes of history -- the heavenly gardens of Persia & the medieval court of France. Also shows us the comforts of saffron, from soups that have eased illness to pies that defy death, until we arrive at last in the present day in her small garden in Brooklyn. Complete with fabulous recipes.
