Tips on shopping for and selecting the right Caviar

 

  • While shopping for your party, purchase the caviar last so that it doesn’t sit in a hot car all day while you are completing other shopping errands.
  • Bring along a container of ice, or request one from the merchant- to keep the caviar chilled during the transport home.
  • Tips on how to serve and store Caviar

    Caviar has been enjoyed all throughout history. The ancient Persians heavily salted their caviar in order to preserve the eggs, and it wasn’t until it became popular in Russia, that a lightly-salted version became the custom. The trade off to less salting was that the caviar didn’t keep very long, and so the tradition of eating caviar as an appetizer, became very popular. Recently, with the addition of non-sturgeon caviars on the market, caviar has become an a...

The Health Benefits of Caviar for the Skin

Caviar has been used for medicinal purposes by the Greeks, the Persians, and the Romans, who understood, even a millennium ago, the benefits of caviar not only when consumed, but as a topical agent as well.

In addition, one tablespoon of caviar contains the entire day’s requirement of B12 which is essential in ...



Sustainable Caviar: the extraction and production process

Traditionally, caviar has been extracted from dead sturgeon. Fisherman would fish the Caspian and Black Seas during the sturgeon migration season (when female fish migrate upstream to lay their eggs) to fish for mature female sturgeon. Once caught, the fish would be sliced open and their eggs removed, naturally killing the fish. To prevent spoilage, the caviar would be cleaned aboard the boat and packed on ice, while the rest of the fish would be later sold to fis...



Sustainable Caviar Production:

Caviar, long considered to be a delicacy around the world; has been traditionally harvested from wild sturgeon caught mainly in the Caspian and Black Seas. It is processed by sieving their egg masses (separating the eggs from the ovaries), and adding salt as a preservative and flavor enhancer. Demand for caviar, and the prices it obtains, is high, but supplies may be running out. The trouble is that caviar is typically pro...

Not unlike a diamond, not all caviars taste and cost the same; and therefore caviar eggs are scrutinized based on a number of factors.

Several aspects will determine where a particular caviar falls on the rating scale, and thereby determine how delicious, and expensive it wil...

Caviar around the world

The history of caviar began over two hundred million years ago, when sturgeon first started to appear on earth. Since then “caviar” has been fundamentally linked to the fish from which it is extracted, the sturgeon.  There have been numerous accounts of “Caviar” from a number of sources; with Latin, Greek and Egyptian artifacts alike, showing a profound interest in the sturgeon circa two thousand years ago.
