Food Facts on Caviar
Today is time to honor this seafood delicacy.
Traditionally the word Caviar referred to fish roe that came only from wild sturgeon (Beluga, Osetra and Sevruga) from the Caspian and Black Sea.
The smooth tiny eggs are usually black, though caviar comes in many shades, including red, gold and grey.
Caviar can be fresh (non-pasturized) or pasteurized. Always look for fresh caviar to fully appreciate this seafood delicacy.
- Blini is a Russian word for very thin pancakes. A Blini can be used to serve your caviar with a dollop of creme fraiche!
Overfishing has led to many restrictions in Caviar production. It is important to know your Fishmonger for the best Caviar available at the best prices.
