What is Caviar? 

Caviar, a delicacy consisting of cured fish eggs, boasts various types and grades catering to differing budgets, occasions and tastes. It's a versatile luxury that elevates any dining experience.

How to Serve Caviar

Serving caviar is an art that enhances its delicate flavours. Here's a guide to serving caviar:

Utensils:

Presentation: 

  • Chill the Caviar: Keep the caviar container refrigerated until just before serving.
  • Arrange Accompaniments: Serve caviar with traditional accompaniments like blinis, toast points or lightly buttered bread.
  • Keep it Simple: Place the caviar on a chilled caviar plate or ice bowl. Open it just before serving.
  • Quantity: Serve a small amount per person, usually a teaspoon or less. The focus is on savouring its rich taste.
  • Garnish: Optionally, add traditional garnishes like chopped eggs, minced onions or crème fraîche on the side.

Enjoyment:

  • Taste Directly: Use a spoon to taste the caviar directly, allowing its flavour to unfold on your palate.
  • Pairing: Wondering what to eat with caviar? Enjoy with dry champagne, vodka, or a crisp white wine to complement the taste.
  • Savour: Let the caviar rest on your tongue for a moment before gently chewing to fully appreciate its texture and flavour.

Is Caviar Vegan?

No, caviar is not vegan. Caviar consists of cured fish eggs, specifically harvested from certain species of sturgeon. As it is an animal product derived from fish, it doesn't align with a vegan diet, which excludes all animal-derived foods and by-products.

Is Caviar Vegetarian?

The truth is that the status of caviar in a vegetarian diet is a bit nuanced. Vegetarianism typically excludes the consumption of meat but may allow for the consumption of animal by-products like dairy and eggs. However, caviar, being fish roe, does not align with a strict vegetarian diet since it involves the harvesting of fish eggs.

While definitions of vegetarianism can vary among individuals, many vegetarians choose to avoid fish and fish products, including caviar, due to ethical or environmental reasons. Therefore, in most cases, caviar is not considered vegetarian-friendly.

Caviar Calories: Is Caviar Fattening?

Caviar is relatively low in calories compared to many other foods, but it's not calorie-free. Generally, one tablespoon of caviar contains approximately 40-50 calories.

Regarding fat content, caviar is naturally high in healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health. However, it's not particularly high in saturated fats.

In moderate amounts, caviar can be part of a balanced diet. It's rich in nutrients like vitamins A, D, and B12, as well as minerals like iron and selenium. However, due to its high salt content and calorie density, consuming large amounts frequently might not align with weight management goals.

As with any food, moderation is key. Including caviar as an occasional indulgence within a balanced diet should not significantly impact overall health or weight, but excessive consumption could contribute to an increased calorie intake.

Can You Freeze Caviar?

Freezing caviar isn't recommended. The delicate nature of caviar, particularly its texture and flavour, can be altered when frozen and then thawed. The freezing process can cause the delicate eggs to burst, changing their texture and compromising their taste.

Caviar is best enjoyed fresh and should be kept refrigerated at temperatures between 28-32°F (-2 to 0°C). It's advisable to consume caviar promptly after opening to savour its best taste and quality. If stored properly in the refrigerator, unopened caviar can last for several weeks.

What is The Best Caviar Out There?

Beluga is considered one of the most expensive types of caviar and has the largest eggs out of all sturgeon varieties. Although it's one of the rarest types available, its roe is creamy and buttery with notes of walnut.

Sturgeon & Alternative Caviar Online

One of the most popular with chefs and gourmands is the Sturgeon Caviar, which has been their choice for centuries. Alongside this classic selection, we offer alternative caviars like Salmon Caviar (red caviar), Lumpfish Roe and Arenkha, each promising a unique and delightful taste.

Sustainability & Quality

With wild caviar trade banned worldwide due to over-fishing, our caviar is sourced from high-quality farms in Italy and China. These farms implement innovative techniques to ensure sustainable sturgeon species and uphold biological farming practices.

How Expensive is Caviar?

Caviar prices vary significantly according to rarity and grade. Certain species of sturgeon yield higher prices such as Huso Huso, which is renowned as one of the finest varieties of Caviar on the market. So, is caviar expensive? Yes, although if you seek something on a budget, the alternative caviar options are excellent too, convincing even the most experienced caviar aficionado.

If you want to have the full caviar experience, look at our collection of caviar accessories. That's where you find our Mother of Pearl sets to serve your meals in style. The ultimate dinner party luxury, these stunning, hand-crafted products are the perfect serving accompaniment!

Why is Caviar so Expensive?

Several factors contribute to the high cost of caviar:

  • Scarcity: Authentic caviar primarily comes from sturgeon, which can take many years to mature and produce eggs. Some species, like Beluga, are rarer and take longer to reach maturity, making their roe scarcer and more expensive.
  • Labour-Intensive Process: Harvesting and processing caviar is a meticulous and labour-intensive process. The delicate eggs must be carefully extracted, cleaned and cured by skilled professionals, often by hand, which adds to the production cost.
  • Sustainability Concerns: Overfishing and illegal trade have significantly depleted sturgeon populations in the wild, leading to stricter regulations and limitations on caviar production. Sustainable practices, including ethical farming, contribute to higher production costs.
  • Quality Standards: High-quality caviar undergoes stringent quality control measures, ensuring that only the finest roe is packaged and sold. Maintaining these standards adds to the overall cost.
  • Exclusivity and Demand: Caviar has a long history of being associated with luxury and exclusivity, driving up demand among connoisseurs and luxury markets. High demand for a relatively limited supply further increases its price.
  • Importance of Origin: Caviar from specific regions, such as the Caspian Sea or the Black Sea, often carries prestige due to its historical significance and superior taste, contributing to higher prices.
  • Storage and Transportation: Caviar is highly perishable and requires specific storage conditions, including constant refrigeration. Proper transportation with temperature control adds to the overall cost.

What is Caviar? 

Caviar, a delicacy consisting of cured fish eggs, boasts various types and grades catering to differing budgets, occasions and tastes. It's a versatile luxury that elevates any dining experience.

How to Serve Caviar

Serving caviar is an art that enhances its delicate flavours. Here's a guide to serving caviar:

Utensils:

Presentation: 

  • Chill the Caviar: Keep the caviar container refrigerated until just before serving.
  • Arrange Accompaniments: Serve caviar with traditional accompaniments like blinis, toast points or lightly buttered bread.
  • Keep it Simple: Place the caviar on a chilled caviar plate or ice bowl. Open it just before serving.
  • Quantity: Serve a small amount per person, usually a teaspoon or less. The focus is on savouring its rich taste.
  • Garnish: Optionally, add traditional garnishes like chopped eggs, minced onions or crème fraîche on the side.

  • Savour: Let the caviar rest on your tongue for a moment before gently chewing to fully appreciate its texture and flavour.

Is Caviar Vegan?

No, caviar is not vegan. Caviar consists of cured fish eggs, specifically harvested from certain species of sturgeon. As it is an animal product derived from fish, it doesn't align with a vegan diet, which excludes all animal-derived foods and by-products.

Is Caviar Vegetarian?

The truth is that the status of caviar in a vegetarian diet is a bit nuanced. Vegetarianism typically excludes the consumption of meat but may allow for the consumption of animal by-products like dairy and eggs. However, caviar, being fish roe, does not align with a strict vegetarian diet since it involves the harvesting of fish eggs.

While definitions of vegetarianism can vary among individuals, many vegetarians choose to avoid fish and fish products, including caviar, due to ethical or environmental reasons. Therefore, in most cases, caviar is not considered vegetarian-friendly.

Caviar Calories: Is Caviar Fattening?

Caviar is relatively low in calories compared to many other foods, but it's not calorie-free. Generally, one tablespoon of caviar contains approximately 40-50 calories.

Regarding fat content, caviar is naturally high in healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health. However, it's not particularly high in saturated fats.

In moderate amounts, caviar can be part of a balanced diet. It's rich in nutrients like vitamins A, D, and B12, as well as minerals like iron and selenium. However, due to its high salt content and calorie density, consuming large amounts frequently might not align with weight management goals.

As with any food, moderation is key. Including caviar as an occasional indulgence within a balanced diet should not significantly impact overall health or weight, but excessive consumption could contribute to an increased calorie intake.

Can You Freeze Caviar?

Freezing caviar isn't recommended. The delicate nature of caviar, particularly its texture and flavour, can be altered when frozen and then thawed. The freezing process can cause the delicate eggs to burst, changing their texture and compromising their taste.

Caviar is best enjoyed fresh and should be kept refrigerated at temperatures between 28-32°F (-2 to 0°C). It's advisable to consume caviar promptly after opening to savour its best taste and quality. If stored properly in the refrigerator, unopened caviar can last for several weeks.

Why is Caviar so Expensive?

Several factors contribute to the high cost of caviar:

  • Scarcity: Authentic caviar primarily comes from sturgeon, which can take many years to mature and produce eggs. Some species, like Beluga, are rarer and take longer to reach maturity, making their roe scarcer and more expensive.
  • Labour-Intensive Process: Harvesting and processing caviar is a meticulous and labour-intensive process. The delicate eggs must be carefully extracted, cleaned and cured by skilled professionals, often by hand, which adds to the production cost.
  • Sustainability Concerns: Overfishing and illegal trade have significantly depleted sturgeon populations in the wild, leading to stricter regulations and limitations on caviar production. Sustainable practices, including ethical farming, contribute to higher production costs.
  • Quality Standards: High-quality caviar undergoes stringent quality control measures, ensuring that only the finest roe is packaged and sold. Maintaining these standards adds to the overall cost.
  • Exclusivity and Demand: Caviar has a long history of being associated with luxury and exclusivity, driving up demand among connoisseurs and luxury markets. High demand for a relatively limited supply further increases its price.
  • Importance of Origin: Caviar from specific regions, such as the Caspian Sea or the Black Sea, often carries prestige due to its historical significance and superior taste, contributing to higher prices.
  • Storage and Transportation: Caviar is highly perishable and requires specific storage conditions, including constant refrigeration. Proper transportation with temperature control adds to the overall cost.
