Insights: Indulgences—Caviar Dreams
More than just fish eggs, caviar is a truly tasteful extravagance

Contemporary caviar fanciers never serve the precious roe in anything other than its austere, sea-scented glory on something neutral such as toast or a Russian blini or pancake, and they never use a silver spoon to serve the caviar. Silver reacts with the roe and leaves a metallic taste. Mother of pearl is ideal, or gold, because it doesn't react. But we surely will react no matter how the caviar reaches us.
