What to Eat with Caviar
Caviar has a delicate flavour and should be served with accompaniments that don’t overwhelm its flavour (if anything at all).
Traditional garnishes include small slices of toast, blinis, unsalted crackers, Crème Fraiche or sour cream. Quail eggs go well with caviar and potatoes are another traditional accompaniment, baked or boiled new potatoes.
King’s Fine Food regularly performs DNA-testing of all of its caviar and was the first UK food company to introduce this.
How Much to Serve
If you were serving caviar by itself, we recommend 30-50g per person as a guide. If you were serving the caviar on canapés, we would work on 5g per canapé.
