Thank you! Your walnut aioli with anchovy and turmeric would be great on toasted baguette with a nice salad. I am getting hungry. I love food52!

I forgot to add the garlic, Sagegreen. I just made the correction to the recipe. The use of real sherry (not cooking sherry) with the saffron makes for a great flavor profile. Enjoy!

Ooh, saffron and sherry! What an interesting pairing! This sounds full of intrigue.
