Some important tips on preparing caviar correctly
Caviar is perfect for refining small appetizers. It is important that you keep the caviar cool for as long as possible. You should therefore only open it shortly before eating or serving it. If you want to give your guests the opportunity to refine their own appetizers with caviar, it is best to serve it in the freshly opened tin with a bowl of ice cubes.
If you don't have a special caviar set at home, you should definitely avoid using silver cutlery when serving the caviar because it gives the caviar an unpleasantly strong fishy aftertaste. Instead choose to serve it with optimal cutlery materials
are like wood, horn, mother-of-pearl or gold.
Blinis, (Russian pancakes) fresh baguette, hash browns, potato wedges or toast are traditionally suitable accompaniments for serving caviar appetizers. Sour cream and unsalted butter go perfectly with it too. As caviar has a very subtle taste, you should make sure when choosing other ingredients that they reinforce the fine roe as a flavor carrier and not smother it with intense flavors such as garlic, fresh onions or hot spices.
The real taste of caviar is only really stylish with a glass of fine champagne or ice-cold vodka. If you want more inspiration for enjoying this perfect pleasure at home, here are two unforgettable and very simple caviar recipes for you to try.
Russian egg deluxe with caviar
Russian egg with caviar is wonderfully stylish, but also easy and quick to prepare.
- 10 hard-boiled quail eggs
- 6 tbsp herb tartar sauce
- 0.5 tsp white pepper and finely ground Flor de Sal
- 5 tsp black Prunier Caviar
- 2 dashes of Worcester sauce
- Freshly chopped parsley
Place the fresh quail eggs in boiling water for 4 minutes. Then chill them under running cold water for several seconds and let them cool down completely. Peel the eggs, cutting the firm inner skin carefully with a sharp knife and slice them lengthways. Then carefully remove the egg yolk from the egg halves and press through a fine sieve. Mix in the mustard, herb remoulade and spices to make a fine paste. Then use a piping bag with a star-shaped nozzle to squeeze the mixture into the egg halves. Finally, add half a teaspoon of caviar to the filling and garnish with dill.
Fresh baguette with sour cream and caviar
If you want an even quicker recipe to enjoy caviar in its purest form, this recipe is just perfect.
• A whole baguette
• Sour cream
• 30 g black Prunier Caviar
• Fresh sprig of dill

Quality is crucial for perfect caviar enjoyment
As you can see: no training as a gourmet cook is required to prepare an exquisite caviar appetizer which will ensure that every dinner party starts with a taste explosion. The simplest and purest recipes are always the best way to savour the essence of excellent caviar. Therefore the quality of the caviar is absolutely crucial. Our in-house Prunier caviar, which is obtained from young Acipenser Baerii sturgeon and is characterized by a fine texture and soft amber-colored grains fits the bill perfectly.
