Saffron... It has an amazing impact on a dish both in flavor and in color. I was fortunate enough to come along a big (and shockingly affordable) container of saffron threads when on my honeymoon. While I bought several containers for gifts, only that which was in my carry-on bag made it home after Customs inspected my suitcase. Those Customs workers must have been foodies too. Back to cooking in my kitchen... I made a grilled saffron shrimp and rice dish with a yogurt dill sauce that was as appetizing as it was colorful. Cheers to dinner dates at home.
