Saffron: a high maintenance love affair

Saffron production is a labour of love – a process so labour intensive that it is hardly surprising that the fiery coloured spice is the most expensive in the world.

Over the past few months, we have followed Marie, a saffron farmer from Espira de Conflent, as she took us step by step through the fascinating process of saffron production.

Christmas is a time for extra-special moments with those we love, so what better time to discover the products that Marie lovingly creates throughout the year?

Visit her chalet at the Christmas Markets in Le Barcarès and receive a coupon for 0.50€ off a glass of her very own vin chaud!
