“If I had three words to describe myself they would be ‘passionate about food’. I am a chef, a baker and a Sourdough expert, and over time I have also become an author, a teacher and a food consultant. Seasonal produce is important to me and I like to incorporate this into my work.”

I met the wonderfully knowledgeable and enthusiastic couple who own the Vallespir’s saffron farm (Domain Casanoveas, Maureillas Las Illas) at a Goat Festival in Arles sur Tech. Their passion for farming was completely evident as they explained how they lovingly raise their crocuses. Each stem is hand-picked and carefully dried in an oven to produce wonderful golden saffron which crumbles in your hand and has such rich earthy aromas.
