How to Serve Caviar
How to serve caviar. There are many ways to serve caviar and many grades to choose from. Serving amounts and choice of grade can vary depending on how many people and the type of event.
How to Serve Caviar for Large Gatherings
For large gatherings, it may be best to serve it with traditional garnishes like blini, chopped onion, egg whites, lemon and fresh herbs. Using garnishes will really help to stretch your caviar supply out for longer without adding much cost.
Serving Caviar in an Intimate Setting
For a more intimate event, like a dinner date or small group of 3 or 4, we recommend going with our Classic or Royal Osetra Caviar. These can be savored on their own or with a simple blini or toast point. We recommend using a mother-of-pearl spoon. A true caviar connoisseur will taste high quality caviar from the top of his own hand, as to not alter the flavor.
As an intimate activity with another person, it can be fun to taste several different caviar grades. For this, we offer a sample set of all 3 caviar grades. Serving caviar as a taste test is also helpful in determining which grade to buy in the future.

Here are some simple serving recommendations based on serving with no garnishes:
1 Person (or 2 if just tasting): 30g-50g
