Q: I've never cooked with saffron before because of the cost. What would be the best recommendation for a first-timer?

Sent by Meghan

Editor: I'd recommend making a risotto milanese — this is a super simple risotto flavored with just parmesan and saffron. It will give you a good idea of what saffron tastes like!
