“If Saffrron is a champion, it’s ultimately because we represent the too-often unsung champions – our local producers, our farmers and our fishermen who provide us with our top quality raw ingredients – this is our purpose. Any win for Saffrron is a win for our community, towards better eating, better living and a better way of doing business.”

– Chef Sel Kandasamy
