Za’faran, or Saffron is the king of spices in the Middle East. Famed for its rarity, it has been historically one of the most expensive of spices, reserved for food served for kings, nobility, and important social or religious feasts.
Carefully harvested and handpicked by the artisanal hands of Bekaa women, our natural saffron brings you the most unknown flavours of Lebanon. This undervalued treasure is the work of hours of craftsmanship, meticulously extracted to offer you the most hidden gem of our land, adding a sensational burst of colours and aromas to your Mediterranean dishes.
As a culinary spice, saffron is best paired with seafood dishes or broths, risotto, or any other rice dish. Add it to your sweet treats for the most original twist: saffron pudding, saffron cookies, saffron crème brûlée, or even saffron tiramisu!
