Insights: Indulgences—Caviar Dreams

More than just fish eggs, caviar is a truly tasteful extravagance
Matt Kramer
From the Print Edition:
Kevin Costner, Nov/Dec 00

(continued from page 3)

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.  

Matt Kramer is a columnist for Wine Spectator, Cigar Aficionado's sister publication.
