My new favourite bread! This saffron herb bread is incredibly quick to make and is visually stunning, too. If you're a fan of saffron, then you will love this bread. The original recipe for this saffron bread comes from the canton of Fribourg. Known by the locals as "cuchaule", this Fribourg speciality is a slightly sweet yeast bread made with saffron.
