SAFFRON & CURRANTS: A Cornish Heritage Cookbook

by Susan Pellowe

£3.50, 56 pages, illustrated

Did you know that Henry VIII loved saffron and did himself no favor when he closed monasteries where they harvested this labor-intensive crop?! Saffron & Currants is a thoroughly-researched history of saffron as a healing herb and a culinary specialty from Rome to India to Cornwall, personal anecdotes of the author who grew up cherishing saffron buns’ heavenly aroma, recipes from WI and other cookbooks, and a brief account of the currants that often accompany buns – all interspersed with famous quotations about saffron.

Humor, rare recipes, a wide-ranging history and a sense of Cornish tradition make Saffron & Currants a unique gift to yourself or to others.

Susan Pellowe is an American Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd.
