I first heard of saffron when I watched TV shows on cooking competitions, seeing great chefs using saffron as special spice in their dish. I was so curious about these tiny red threads and I searched for more information about them. Then I decided to buy a box of saffron threads. It was rather expensive for a small box of around 50g, but each time only a small number of threads are used, so I think it is quite reasonable and that I will not finish a box like this too soon.

Potato chips are not new or something very fancy. Just that this time I made them in waffle shapes. Normally I often cut potatoes into plain sticks, sometimes I cut with a zigzag knife to make french-fries, but today I wanted to try making chips with this pattern.
It was very funny when I sliced the potatoes and these slices kept falling down from the mandoline slicer, using the fluted blade. They looked so fragile that I touched very gently. Frying them in hot oil took just a few minutes to get them golden brown and crispy. In this shape, they are not as crispy as the normal potato chips, but I think making these potato wafers to decorate other foods is not a bad idea.
Just sprinkle some salt (it’s great to have freshly crushed sea salt), we’ll have a classic but never out-of-fashioned food.
