Meet the Makers: Saffron + Kumquats

At Modern Kids Design, we don’t just value good style. Sustainability and eco-friendly design is something we believe in and it doesn’t just end with design-driven products. We believe that good food is also important. In fact, we “heart” the beauty of bringing global cuisine into the home. That’s why, in addition to launching our Foodies! eGuide, we’re carrying these fun cooking kits from Saffron + Kumquats.


Saffron + Kumquats: Let Your Mouth do the Traveling


Getting good food to the table doesn’t have to be a chore. Saffron + Kumquats helps you turn mealtime into a culinary adventure for the whole family. If it feels like you’ve hit “Repeat” a few too many times on dinner recipes, Saffron + Kumquats can help you cook up something new.


Founder Vanessa Larson yearned to share her love of food and cooking. As she studied for the MBA in Paris, she came up with the idea of Saffron + Kumquats. She understood that while she’d been lucky enough to travel, take cooking classes, and taste the cuisines of various countries, not everyone had that opportunity. To introduce home cooks to flavors and spices they might not have come across at their local supermarket, Larson created cooking kits.


Each kit contains spices that are endemic to a particular cuisine and 5 recipes cards to get you started. You can choose between vegetarian or omnivorous recipes. We’re excited to carry the Thai, Greek, and French kits.


If cooking isn’t your cup of tea, maybe you’d prefer to mull some wine or make a Harissa hot sauce. Either way, you’ll be glad you tried something new.


What do you think of the kits? As always, we enjoy hearing from you at Thanks for reading!
