What Did You Think of Hall Dinner This Week?

If you ate dinner in hall at all this week, we’d love it if you can spare 30 seconds to quickly rate the meals you did have.

The most expensive spice is saffron. It takes about 75,000 saffron blossoms to produce one pound of the spice. Its costliness has to do with its harvesting. Only a small amount of each saffron flower is used, and all harvesting must be done by hand. Saffron is believed to be native to the Mediterranean, Asia Minor, and Iran, although Spain, France, and Italy are also now primary cultivators of the spice. The spice we think of when we hear “saffron” is actually only a small part of the plant itself. Saffron (Crocus sativus) is a purple flower. What we use for that distinctive yellow colour, sweet-herb smell, and bitter taste is actually the stigma -the pollen-germinating part- at the end of the red pistil, of the plant. There are only three stigmata in each saffron flower. Once the stigmata (and their red pistils) have been separated from the plant, they are dried to preserve colour and flavour. Since such a small part of the flower is used, the production is costly.

JCR Democracy

The JCR holds regular meetings where all JCR members are able to raise issues and vote on various topics.
