New to caviar? Here's a little help.

What is caviar?
Similarly to the use of the term champagne (meant to designate only sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France), the term caviar refers specifically to sturgeon eggs from the Caspian Sea off the coast of Russia and Iran. Today, however, the word caviar is commonly used to encompass all fish eggs used in the same tradition as real caviar. Because of overfishing, the oldest breeds of sturgeon have become endangered, so today the majority of caviar is farmed.

Need help choosing?
We're happy to lend a hand. Choosing caviar can be intimidating—with choices from across the world and price tags in the triple-digits. We make sure to carry a range of caviars, available year-round, that are reasonably priced and of consistent quality.  

How to store caviar? 
When purchasing caviar, do not hesitate to ask for a bag of ice in which to store it until you get home. Unopened and refrigerated, caviar will stay fresh for up to four weeks. Once opened, it should be used within three days.

How to serve it?
Metal spoons and bowls oxidize the roe, imparting an unappetizing metallic flavor. To keep your caviar pristine, use mother-of-pearl, glass or even plastic servingware.

How to describe it? 
Caviar can be described by its brininess (or saltiness), creaminess and pop.

Still not sure which caviar to buy? 
Come in and ask our staff. We're glad to answer any of your questions.
