The first time I tried saffron was probably twenty years ago. Greece produces saffron, but it is very expensive to buy.

The combination of yams with creamy coconut and bright saffron is simply divine. So light, luscious and the flavors are cohesive.

Yam has very similar taste with sweet potato and it’s a very versatile vegetable. It can be barbecued, roasted, grilled, boiled, fried, smoked, baked and also when grated it is processed into a dessert.
