How to Serve Caviar
Caviar should be kept ice cold, between 30 - 34ºF. Opened/unsealed caviar should ideally be consumed immediately. Any remaining may be rechilled and enjoyed the next day.
The type of spoon you use to serve the caviar affects the initial taste as it hits your tongue. The traditional caviar spoon to enjoy your caviar should be made of mother of pearl, bone, or shell. Avoid any metal spoons as the eggs will absorb the metallic flavors through their membrane.
How to Eat Caviar
First, we must review the basics. Yes, caviar can be eaten by itself but there are other ways to savor the experience such as the following:
Treat caviar like a fine wine. On its own, roll the eggs around your mouth to savor the rich flavor and unique texture. However you partake of this delicacy, there is no wrong way to savor each bite.
Gourmet potato chips or blinis are the perfect base to serve your caviar. The salty flavors compliment nicely in each bite and become even more indulgent with a dallop of crème fraiche, for a nutty flavor and tart finish.
