    I have some questions about Cavier. Is it better to eat it off of horn or mother of pearl or does it matter. Which is best considering the price, Savruga, Osetra or Baluga? How is it best served? With what condiments? I would appreciate any help. Jake

    Serve caviar in a crystal, glass or porcelain bowl on a bed of crushed ice, or in a special caviar server with a tiny spoon that is not metal - not even silver - first choice is gold or mother-of-pearl but you can use cheap stuff like horn, wood or glass. It is spread on plain bland crackers. If you need condiments, perhaps you should have gotten better fish eggs. Drink good booze with it - very cold vodka, champagne, or white wine.

    It is more of an acquired taste. sort of like enjoying the taste of booze. kind of over priced, but so are many other things. If you can afford it or just want to show off - have at it.

    Small plates of chopped hard boiled egg and finely chopped onion are often served along with the caviar. Caviar is an acquired taste to be sure, you either love it or hate it. I've had my fair share and I love it. YMMV.

    I'll stick with pickled herring. It can be consumed without one pinky in the air.

    FlaLagarto - you can't do that - a hamburger w/o ketchup just isn't a hamburger. Try hiding the ketchup in a "special sauce" of mixed mayo, ketchup, and mustard, which is the way it all ends up on the burger anyway. At least it then isn't red meat, it's kinda like Reeses Peanut Butter meat; and everyone knows peanut butter is full of good things....Bob Dodd

    HaveGun gave you good advice, except for the cracker part. Use a Mother-of-Pearl spoon and place the caviar directly on your tongue. Pop a couple of eggs at a time and savor. Refresh your palate with good champagne and repeat.

    Malossal processed fresh Royal Beluga is the best, and close to the most costly. Osetra is what I used to buy most often.

    Ain't no bad way to eat Beluga. Fingers, washed down with Vive Cliquot = perfect.

    Caviar is a culinary prank, played on those with too much pride to get the joke.

    FlaLagarto,The movie your are thinking of was BIG he was still a kid in adults body. Cavier should never touch metal. Wood is the best utensil to dish out the eggs, so they say. Break-em all. Jeff
