Saffron. The world’s most expensive spice is saffron. So, why is it so expensive? It takes 80,000 crocus flowers to extract one pound of stamen and styles are dried to the yellow and red “threads”. These threads give the rich yellow color to dishes popular in Spain, India, Iran, but also in other countries in Europe, the Arabic peninsula, and Western Asia . Saffron is high in manganese, and some studies show that saffron may benefit depression. How do you know if you are buying “good” saffron? Saffron comes in grades. The highest grade on Spanish saffron is called “coupé”, shown here. It is equal to Iranian “sargol” grade. Kashmir saffron is mostly classified into two main categories called "mongra" (stigma alone) and "lachha" (stigmas attached with parts of the style). ISO 3632 class I is the highest class on the international standard. Beware of fake saffron (safflower threads) and adulterated saffron. #saffron#saffronrice#saffrontea#saffroncrocus#indianfood#persianfood#spanishfood#paella#risotto#manganese#expensive#expensivetaste#taste#wishlist#foodie#food#italianfood#spices#spice#kesari

The SVJ Roadster sports the ‘Super Veloce’ for superfast and ‘Jota’ suffixes, signifying the car’s performance and track prowess: its coupé stablemate took the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record lap-time and the roadster is no less a futuristic, driver’s car. Benchmark performance comes from the most powerful series production V12-engined car produced to date by Lamborghini, outputting 770 hp (566 kW) at maximum 8,500 rpm. The SVJ Roadster delivers 720 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm, with a weight-to-power ratio of 2.05 kg/hp. The SVJ accelerates from standing to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.8 seconds. A top speed of more than 350 km/h is complemented by a braking distance of 100 km/h to 0 in 31 meters.

RM 002-V1 TOURBILLON 2001 -
The serial production model of the first RM 001 prototype, the RM 002 immediately exhibits the aesthetic vocabulary used to produce its horological architecture. Stripping away the conventional opaque dial and opening up the case back through transparent sapphire within the broad, curvaceous bezels reveals the architectural interior in its entirety. The 3D effect can be observed from every angle.
With its smooth, cool and refreshing taste, it perfectly complements the hot and spicy flavours that epitomise the cuisine. It aids digestion and is a healthy addition to any balanced diet. Besides offering health benefits, lassi is also indulgent and can be enjoyed at any time.
