How to Serve Caviar
It is recommended that you open the vacuum-sealed tin 15 to 20 minutes before eating; be sure to keep it cold while the caviar is exposed to the air. A bowl of ice chips makes the perfect nest for a tin of these precious eggs. Scoop the caviar out of the tin carefully, so as not to break the eggs, using a mother of pearl, horn or wooden spoon. Metal spoons should never touch caviar as they can affect the taste.
Caviar is delicious enjoyed simply – atop a round of brioche toast, blini or steamed baby red potato, with or without a dollop of crème fraîche; or in your favorite canapé recipes.
Keep it simple, as we have in our caviar recipes so that the flavor of the caviar is allowed to shine.
Once opened, it is best to eat caviar quickly, as it does not have a long shelf life. Paired with champagne, sake, vodka or dry white wine, it’s hard to imagine that there will be any caviar left over.
About Our French Caviar
Our Ossetra Malossol Caviar is truly sustainable and humanely-raised on a state-of-the-art aquafarm in the Aquitaine region of France.
The Siberian Sturgeon (Acipenser baerii) are raised with the strictest of animal welfare and environmental protocols, and all processing and canning take place on the farm.
The farm is an exemplar of environmental practices that are good for the fish and the land, and its wastewater actually runs cleaner than the same water at entry. They combine the height of technology with painstaking artisanal methods to produce truly superb caviar.
