Give mocktails and cocktails a festive garnish. It’s a deliciously versatile ingredient that you can use whenever you need a hint of tang and sour. You can even use it as a pomegranate substitute when pomegranate is not in season. It’s a must-have addition to your pantry!

While I think of myself as an Aussie, I’m also proud as punch of my Iranian heritage. So much so, in 2013, I created a business built around the mouth-watering delicacies of Persia; bringing you flavours of the real Iran. I wanted to create a space at the table for the golden-petaled spice: Persian Saffron.
