How To Taste The Caviar ?
Caviar should be properly chilled to preserve its freshness.
It is very sensitive to temperature. You can keep caviar in the refrigerator but not in the freezer!
You serve caviar in chilled glass dishes (bowls), preferably made of crystal.
The bowl should be placed on crushed ice. It guarantees fresh flavour.
For caviar you use spoons made from mother of pearl, ivory or tortoiseshell. This delicacy is treated as royalty.
Avoid using metal spoons (especially made of silver) as they can react with the caviar and impart a metallic taste.
