Chefs all around the world use saffron in their dishes. Everyone knows that finding a supplier of high quality saffron is essential and yet extremely rare. The golden rule of using saffron is pre-brewing. It is not part of instant spices. Saffron needs time to develop the subtlety of its flavors.

To extract its Yellow Gold color, dip the pistils in a liquid (oil, water, milk, alcohol or broth) hot but not boiling, and let it stand between eight and 24 hours if you want to make the most of it.
