Re: A simple dish to impress guests

I've never tasted real truffles before because of the cost. I couldn't tell you what saffron tastes like either. Not wishing to make you cry, I buy the stuff from a dealer, and recently purchased 3 grammes for $28 US. http://www.saffronspices.co.uk/11-67-large/3g-iranian-pushal-saffron-spice-grade-...

Re: Salad Olivieh

Yum! That does sound good! Good solid "comfort food" with an unusual 'flair' in the olives, warm bread and pickles. Royd...did the recipe say how many servings? With only 1 cup of turkey meat, probably not many. It is not really servings as such, you mix up the quantity you want, and tuck in :)
