Excellent Saffron produced in Italy
The Giraudo family’s farmhouse is located near Cuneo. A historic family that has made its traditions one of its strong points. Today, the daughter Erica has brought a new wave of innovation by introducing new crops and processing methods. Some years ago, in the desire to go back to using simple and manual processes, to recuperate man’s ancient relationship with nature, the family decided to cultivate saffron flowers. This spice, that was well known for saffron health benefits has been used for thousands of years and thanks to its charm has been present in this region since the Middle Ages.
Cuneo Saffron, a project aimed at reaching the highest quality, has become the cornerstone of the family work. Today the whole production cycle is carried out within the company, starting from the cultivation of the native Crocus sativus Linneo (bulb) of which the company is a certified producer. Every year each bulb is checked and selected by hand to be re-planted in new ground, following the ancient techniques of rotation and, of course, nature’s rhythm. “Cuneo Saffron” combines only the excellent part of the production process with hand-farmed methods, to obtain the best quality, that explains also why sope people consider saffron expensive. Anyway saffron deserves to be the protagonist of your kitchen, just as it is in the life of this family. That’s why Italian Food Joy is a good place where to buy saffron.
