Hello everybody. I've looked at older postings and can't find a specific answer to this:
(1) i've heard that Iranian saffron is of superb quality and also cheap (for Europeans). Same story with pistachios, but what else of small, lightweight spices are good. Almonds?
(2) also, where to buy? My son will be in Tehran for an international sporting event next month, prpbably staying at the Morvarid hotel. I want to direct him to somewhere that's easy to get to and where he can buy me a few things quickly (boys hate shopping!,).or he just get saffron, pistachios etc at the airport on the way home?
Many thanks in advance.
