This reminds me of the movie Ratatouille - the Disney movie with teh little rat! I had never heard of cooking with Saffron, it really isn't a very common culinary spice in the State at all. But after watching that movie, and reading this article, I would really be interested in trying it! Isn't it crazy how words can never describe a taste?
