What’s the best way to eat caviar??

Getting the best out of each caviar tasting experience is easy with these 5 simple steps:


  1. Always keep your caviar refrigerated, ideally at the back of your fridge where the temperature is coldest and more consistent. This preserves the quality and flavour of the eggs. 
  1. Once opened, serve the caviar in a non-metallic dish on-ice to maintain freshness. Any remaining caviar should be sealed and stored in the fridge and consumed within 3 days.
  1. Enjoy on its own, the Russian way on the back of your hand or alternatively as a garnish. For example, on toast, crackers, blinis, or eggs.
  1. If you are eating caviar on its own, don't chew the caviar. Whilst it's natural to chew our food, this could reduce the flavour of the caviar. Its best to roll the caviar around your mouth, much like wine and really savour the flavour to its full potential.
  1. Never use metallic serving spoons. This can alter the flavour of the eggs. Much better to use mother of pearl, plastic, porcelain, or glass for example.


The ways to enjoy caviar are endless. Caviar generally lends itself to more subtle flavours due to its modest flavour profile. There are many recipes that use caviar with potato, pizza, and pasta, as well as smoked salmon, salads, and soups.


Caviar pairs extremely well with either champagne or vodka, also traditionally used as palate cleansers between tastings.
