With a history stretching back to the very beginning of recorded human existence, saffron's culinary importance cannot be understated. Integral to the cuisines of the Middle East, South Asia, and the Mediterranean, saffron is found in traditional dishes from Milan to Mumbai, and has long been the world's most coveted spice. Brought to the Kashmiri Valley by Persian traders in the 12th century AD, Diaspora's saffron represents the pinnacle of flavor and aroma. Grown by Raqib Mushtaq on his family's 3.75 acre farm in the historic saffron district of Pampore, India, where his family has been growing saffron for as long as his grandparents can remember, its beautiful subtlety and notes of honey, almond, jasmine, and sweet summer hay will elevate any dish it touches.
