Trade Route Talks: Sublime Saffron

Trade Route Talks: Sublime Saffron

The history of saffron cultivation and usage dates back over 3,000 years and spans cultures and continents. Take a trip around the world through the eyes of this exclusive spice.

“Trade Route Talks” are series of monthly discussions about agriculture, trade, and how our taste for foods have changed the landscape of our world. Students are greeted with a topical appetizer and, after the conversation, participate in the hands-on cooking of a dish which uses the theme of the day as the main attraction. ($55)
