For someone wanting to put some pizzazz into that occasional, special 'foodie' event. Inserting some Sturgeon Caviar into the mix would make a fitting, stylish accompaniment.
This past Thanks Giving Day, to celebrate our having been able to survive and avoid Covid to-date. Knowing how much my kids love to munch on those tiny, salty & fishy ' black pearls', I decided to treat and share some Sturgeon caviar with them.
Since I am no Oligarchs, Bezos, Buffet or Gates and my lottery lucky star has not shined on me yet. Though a loving father at heart, however, the thought of treating them and splurging a few thousand dollars ( $1350+ per 100g ) on Imperial Russian or Persian Sturgeon Beluga Malossol Caviar is IMO, a bit over-board and overly extravagant. However, the cheaper, smaller grain Russian, Siberian and Amur Sturgeon Ossetra Malossol Caviar would still make a more than acceptable alternative. After all, its the thoughts that count? Right?!
After a very satisfactory, initial order of Wild Alaskan Salmon Roe from ' Lemberg-Canada ', I have now enough confidence to elevate the risk level by giving their selection of Sturgeon Ossetra malossol caviar a try.
I am glad to report, once again, the result from both price, quality and efficiency in delivery was quite gratifying!
So, for those future special gatherings, which a touch of class and something special to pair with that bottle of bubbly is needed, Lemberg-Canada is a reliable, trusted source for value-for-money Caviar. However, if that bottle is a special Vintage Krug, Dom Perignon or Cristal and mega-$$$$ Beluga is called for, then one needs to shop elsewhere. :D Ha!
Lastly, just an after thought and observation. When I first had caviar years ago, be they Beluga, Ossetra or Sevruga, I recalled the grains were way BIGGER! So sad to see the huge impact and negative result of over-fishing nowadays have on a simple thing like fish-eggs! Sigh!!
