JFI - Saffron

“Best things come to those who wait”. Sure! After waiting for last few months, my chance for hosting Indira’s – JFI is here finally! For any foodie the essence of every single ingredient is profound. Its like a beautiful poem where each ingredient come together to form wonderful verses of the complete recipe. And its only a poetic justice that I host this event which celebrates such natural ingredients.

JFI - Saffron

My site Chef In You is about enjoying ingredients in different ways where each region in different parts of the world honor it in their own ways. Take a boat ride through the back waters of God’s own country Kerala in India, ride on a camel through the dessert lands of middle east, fly over the liberty statue or surf the waves of Latin beaches. Wherever you go, you will find at least one dish which honors this Queen of Spices – Yes, you guessed right. I am talking about Saffron. Its one of most stylish and regal spice of all. Expensive, Exquisite and Elegant. A little pinch always goes a long way in giving a distinct regal touch to the dish by way of aroma, taste and color.

So let’s celebrate this month of December by getting spoiled in the royal warmth of Saffron,shall we? Here’s what you got to do

1. Cook and Enjoy a dish that has Saffron as one of the main ingredients.

  8. Okay then send it across Dhivi. I got the mail this evening only from Feedburner.

  9. Only this afternoon I was wondering why there is no announcement for the event from you. I went to Indira’s site to double check if it was your turn this month or mine? I think I already have 2 entries for the event.
    Reg. the barley event, I was thinking more of pot barley and whole barley flour. Is barley malt syrup made from whole barley?

    Announced it yday itself. Great send them over! You know Malts right – they are produced by sprouting the whole grain (barley in this case), creating enzymes etc and then made into a sweetener. Yes its from the whole grain – that’s why wondered. :) –DK

  10. Great choice for JFI especially this time of the year when a little bit of extravagance is totally acceptable. Will try to make something for the event.
