COOKING WITH SAFFRON AT THE MACCHI RESIDENCE

July 7, 2010

Here we are, Wednesday morning, and today is "the Macchi family recipe day".
Being the procrastinator that I am I decided yesterday was the day that I will make my famous Swedish “Saffrans Bullar” (Saffron buns) to share with all of you. I went through millions (close to) of recipes and finally found one that I was really happy with. In the unbearable humidity we had here in Montreal yesterday, I turned my oven on and added another 15C in my kitchen, but I was just as excited, cause I was going to have “Saffrans Bullar” in August, rather than, as by tradition, in November!

I made a doe, one that I have never managed to make as good before, and it had the perfect texture. It made it so easy to work with! None the less, between dealing with the window cleaner that we had contracted for yesterday, the guy that was treating our wood doors and my four year-old making sure I was catering to his EVERY need, my “bullar” turned into charcoal =/!
I can’t even believe my fire alarm didn’t go off, my gas alarm goes of every time I use hairspray! I was so upset that I quickly sent them into the garbage, thinking back now I wish i had taken a picture of them. So, having that said, there is no recipe from MrsMacchi this week but thank good for Paolo (MrMacchi), he knew about my unsuccessful baking attempt and came home and cooked one of my all time favorite dishes of his and that is what I will be sharing with you today, Catering services available from this website for any type of event you need, from a private parties, corporate event or special events like weddings.
