The legend of saffron…

The Saffron, which has always been used to colour the paintings and the glasses of windows especially in Milan, the homeland of the yellow risotto, has a curios legend. According to this legend, a young skilful glass maker was often preparing colourful golden paints using saffron. He worked at the Saint Ellen glass wall of the Dome in Milan. For this reason Valerio, his craftsman, gave him as a nickname “Saffron”. When the daughter of Valerio got married, the young boy was to pour to buy her a present and so he went to the wedding reception holding in his hands two big bowls of golden risotto, inventing that day the risotto “Milanese style”. It was a big success and it is nowadays an appreciated dish of the culinary culture of Lombardy region.
