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