Caviar is one of the most unique and amazing gifts to give and receive.
A great gift is picked to fit the occasion, sends a meaningful message, and should undoubtedly leave a lasting impression. We believe caviar as a gift checks off all of these elements. Recipients of fresh and quality caviar, are in the ultimate umami luck, especially if they have never tried it!
One question we love to ask our clients is, "when and where was the first time you tried caviar?" We love this question because of the different responses and reactions we receive! From our experiences of hosting hundreds of caviar tasting events in various social settings, eight out of ten adults who taste sturgeon caviar for the first time end up loving it! This may be contrary to one's preconceived notions.
We hear a lot of our first-time customers say they have tried caviar at a buffet somewhere, but chances are they are referring to Salmon or Trout roe, which is not the type of caviar we are describing here. For it to be considered genuine caviar, it has to derive from the Sturgeon sustainably. Contrastingly, Salmon or Trout roe, which is more commercial, and red to orange in color and are also "fish eggs," or simply "roe," but are not considered genuine caviar. That's because Sturgeon roe (caviar), which is darker in color, gets the ultimate crown of all roe! Even within the entire seafood category, Sturgeon roe is considered a heavyweight contender (If you see caviar on a menu, be sure to ask your server which type it is!)
Now, let's look at four underlying reasons why caviar makes a great gift!
Caviar is a very delicious delicacy!
Caviar is most often served with a mother-of-pearl spoon on a fresh blini or a piece of toast with some crème Fraiche. For frequent caviar consumers, sometimes just by itself. In our opinion, the more traditional and straightforward, the better! That's because one truly allows the palate to enjoy the taste texture and aroma in their purest way. However, nowadays, caviar is used in many fine-dining dishes to help trigger the taste buds by adding salted and creaminess flavors of the best the sea has to offer, plus its use of colors helps enhance the visuals in fine-dining dishes. This is one of the many reasons why many established, and Michelin star chefs have decided to incorporate caviar in more of their recipes.
Curious how caviar beautifies your favorite dishes? There are many caviar hashtags on social media. One, in particular, is "#caviardreams," where the community of caviar lovers and culinary chefs post and rave about one of their delicious and joyous moments with caviar on their social media accounts.
