Many of our premium gourmet gift baskets feature caviar, which has long been considered one of the most expensive, most decadent gourmet foods that money can buy. Caviar is the roe or eggs of a large fish, typically sturgeon, though there are many varieties. It is eaten as a garnish or a spread for hors d’oeuvres and can also be used as a lavish ingredient in fine dining dishes (think fish with caviar and cream sauce – yum!).
A high protein delicacy, caviar is best served chilled on a bed of ice with crackers, toast points, chilled vodka, or the time-tested favorite of champagne. When serving, be sure to use a wood, gold, or mother-of-pearl spoon and not steel or silver as metals can dramatically alter the taste of caviar.
If you are feeling the urge all of the sudden, check out our Champagne and Caviar gift. It is well-priced for the value and offers a great taste of luxury. Perfect for two and perfect for summer.
