Lady in charge of the feast has been convinced to use soy sauce  
instead of Murri. (Also, she's also replacing Saffron with Turmeric  
because "Saffron if the most expensive spice in the world." We'll work

Yes, saffron can be expensive, but you usually don't need much.  
Turmeric will add color, but no taste.

Do not buy saffron from the grocery store. The prices are high and the  
quality is poor.
