Celebrate Caviar Day With A Caviar Tasting

By Chris Boyle

By Kristen Shirley

Here at Elite Traveler, we don’t celebrate many “Days of the Year” (who knew there was a day devoted to stationary or zippers?), but I will make an exception for Caviar Day. To celebrate one of my favorite foods, see below for a primer on different types of caviar from Sturia Caviar, a boutique French caviar producer, and one of my favorites to enjoy at home or during a party brunch at Bagatelle. My preferred way to enjoy caviar is with a tasting paired with Champagne – try Perrier Jouet or Dom Pérignon. Pick two to four different types (30g of each type for a group of four people) and start with the most delicate, moving up to the most flavorful.

Sturia Oscietra Grand Cru

Oscietra caviar is considered to be one of the top types of caviar. It has a rich marine flavor without being too briny, and it is incredibly creamy. It’s my personal favorite. $138/1.06oz

Sturia Vintage

The brand’s signature caviar has quite a complex flavor — which some might find it a bit too briny — but is quite delicious. Crush the firm eggs against the roof of your mouth for an explosion of flavor, or put on a blini with your favorite toppings to tone down the flavor. $79.20/1.06oz

Sturia Jasmin

A delicate, creamy caviar is matured for only four weeks, giving it a fresh and more mild finish. I recommend enjoying it the French way, off the back of your hand (like salt in a tequila shot). $85.80/1.06oz
