Cheshire Saffron

Saffron 1

Searching out high quality ingredients is something we all love to do, but seldom are we so lucky as to have them growing in our own back yard. Fortunately for us, and due to the painstaking work of brothers Peter and Douglas Gould, The London Carriage Works can proudly boast the exclusive use of Cheshire Saffron.

Native to Greece and Southwest Asia the Monomorphic clone known as Saffron is not a spice you might expect to flourish a short drive from our front door in the beautiful surroundings of Delamere Forrest. However, when Peter, a Doctor of Plant Molecular Biology and brother Doug, with his years of experience in marketing and sales, teamed together that is exactly what they achieved.  From laboratory to green house and now to a full plantation, the brothers strive for excellence by hand picking the individual saffron strands to ensure their beloved spice stands alone in quality and purity. Like them, we are proud to work with such a high quality product and knowing exactly where it came from makes it all the more satisfying and delicious, as we hope you will agree.

Cheshire Saffron currently features in our Spring a la carte menu – Brixham crab and Cheshire Saffron ravioli with lemon grass, ginger sauce and English asparagus

NB –  It takes 4,500 crocus flowers make up one ounce of saffron spice.
