Everybody knows caviar. It doesn’t necessarily mean everyone has tasted them but caviar is almost synonymous to living a rich and famous lifestyle. But for those who aren’t very familiar with the different types of caviar, it should be noted that the taste differ significantly. The best is still said to be the beluga caviar, harvested from the Caspian Sea in Russia.
It is said that the beluga caviar is such a rare delicacy that it can cost up to thousands per ounce because the Beluga Sturgeon is considered a critically endangered species. The Beluga Sturgeon produces the largest of eggs which makes the delicate texture of the caviar exquisite. Although pricey, a lot of people want a taste of this caviar simply because this is what made the “caviar” famous. It’s rich, smooth flavor is a must-try for anyone who wants the real experience of caviar.
So what will complete an ultimate beluga caviar experience. Experts say that high quality grade caviar such as this need not be complemented with anything else. One should savor the taste on its own, using a caviar spoon made out of mother of pearl. Perfect serving per person is at most 2 ounces, depending if the caviar will be complemented with toast points or crackers.
Beluga Caviar can also be enjoyed with sour cream or creme fresche, while others prefer it with minced flat-leaf parsley. To wash it down, champagne is preferred followed by a simple fruit such as a pear so as not to cut down on the richness in taste of the caviar.
