How to serve caviar?

The most traditional way is to serve it – as an appetizerFrench_chard_from_pay_d'oc

–       In a small vase;

–       Directly on  blini or on  toast;

–       Or simply spoon the caviar onto a piece of white bread  and enjoy the taste of it; It is good to add a bit of unsalted butter, which tempers the salty flavor;

And of course if you are lucky enough to have high quality caviar, just it eat it plain with a spoon. Otherwise, the bread will spoil the taste of the caviar.

What to drink it with?

At home we usually pair caviar with a glass of white wine; Chardonnay is probably the best because of its impressive range of flavours.

If you want to be more Russian – a shot of vodka is a must; if you are looking for a romantic diner – a glass of Champagne is excellent.
