Oct 24, 2023
In the realm of culinary delights, Turmeric and Saffron emerge as fascinating contenders, each boasting their unique charm. Turmeric, the earthy root hailing from Southeast Asia and India, captures hearts with its vibrant yellow hue and impressive anti-inflammatory prowess, courtesy of the superstar compound, curcumin. Its presence in the world of cooking varies from rich curries to golden-infused smoothies. In contrast, Saffron, a luxury spice derived from the delicate stigmas of crocus flowers, bathes dishes in a deep, aromatic, and slightly bitter glory. The magic of saffron unfolds in Mediterranean and Indian fare, colouring paellas and risottos with its golden touch and offering a bouquet of health benefits. However, while both spices add vibrancy to dishes, they differentiate in texture, appearance, cost, and availability, making them fascinating subjects of culinary exploration.

Royal Prawn Saffron Orzo Delight - Heray Spice
Oct 18, 2023
After a memorable evening at Chicago's Andros Taverna, where we savoured a delectable dish named 'Seafood Orzotto,' our craving for saffron and orzo grew. As we delved into our culinary exploration, it was fascinating to uncover the Italian origins of orzo, despite its Mediterranean and Middle Eastern prevalence. Our hearts and taste buds were set on the enchanting 'King Prawn Orzo with Tomato and Saffron' recipe. But first, let's unveil the intriguing nature of orzo. With its rice-like appearance, you could easily mistake it for risotto, though the two are fundamentally distinct. Orzo, also known as risoni (Italian for 'barley'), derives its name from its barley-like resemblance. While most orzo is crafted from semolina flour, a more vibrant tricoloured variety emerges from sun-dried tomatoes and spinach infusion, giving it a dash of colour.
