Just a quick one. Yesterday was an International Caviar day. I love caviar & champagne so what is the best way to celebrate then to combine my favourites? The best Caviar I ever had is Red Salmon caviar from Ukraine… although John West’s black Lumpfish caviar is ok. :)
United Kingdom was all about Wimbledon past few weeks. Lanson came up with this cute champagne bottle sleeve in a green & pink. I simply could not resist :) cute but a bit too dry for my taste.
Caviar is a delicacy consisting of salt-cured fish-eggs of the Acipenseridae family. The roe can be “fresh” or pasteurized, with pasteurization reducing its culinary and economic value.
Traditionally, the term caviar refers only to roe from wild sturgeon in the Caspian and Black Sea (Beluga, Ossetra and Sevruga caviars). Depending on the country, caviar may also be used to describe the roe of other fish such as salmon, steelhead, trout, lumpfish, whitefish and other species of sturgeon.
Good Caviar is expensive and considered a delicacy. Its eaten as a garnish or a spread on white bread with a bit of butter or with water crackers with some soft cheese. Its definitely not an everyday food BUT great starter for special occasions OR when you want to feel a bit posh :)
