The purity, taste and texture of Caviar make it exclusive and unique. Every "pearl" has its special character. Nothing is added to nature's creation other than a little salt to bring out the flavours, making it a truly unequalled gastronomic luxury.
It is still not really clear where the name caviar comes from. The word «Cav-Jar» (dish of joy) comes from an Iranian tribe that used to live by the Caspian Sea and was among the first to dine on sturgeon roe. Other theories about the origin of the word include, for example, that the word caviar (Khaviar in Persian) comes from the Persian «Khag-viar» – a term used in the central Persian - speaking region for «small black fish egg».
It all began in the Caspian Sea which is still one of the main sources of Russian caviar today. But it did not take long before those seafaring people, the Phoenicians and Egyptians, also learned to appreciate the dish of joy. Soon the market for the delicious black pearls extended right around the Mediterranean.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ENJOYING CAVIAR AT ITS BEST
· Caviar must be kept cool after opening to preserve its flavour and freshness.
· Refrain from using silver cutlery, as this can affect the fine flavour of the caviar.
· The best temperature for storage is at -2° or maximum +2°C. It is best to enjoy your caviar fresh, as soon as possible after opening. If you keep it for longer in less than perfect conditions, the flavour and consistency may be impaired.
· Champagne goes extremely well with caviar. Vodka is also a traditional accompaniment. If you do not care for either, you cannot go wrong with a light white wine.
