Blini, vodka and black caviar: No real Russian feast is complete without this tasty troika, which has become synonymous with Russian culture.
References to caviar date back to as far as the Persian Empire. However, it hasn't always been regarded as the luxury item it is today. Russian fishermen learned to farm caviar as early as the 12th century and for centuries it was considered nothing more than cheap peasant food, served with porridge and eaten by the bowlful. However, once Ivan the Terrible got a taste for it, its status changed and it has remained a delicacy since.
Caviar is eggs, or roe, extracted from several types of sturgeon fish and then cured in salt brine. The most traditional and famous Russian black caviar comes from the beluga.
As the largest in the sturgeon family, the beluga averages four meters in length, weighing 1,000 kilograms and producing about 20 to 25 percent of its body weight in eggs, equating to some 200 kilograms of usable caviar.
Beluga can live up to 100 years and can start producing eggs as early as 16 years old, but only once every two years. Unfortunately the beluga is becoming quite rare; only 120 or less are caught annually. In fact, all beluga in Russia are now under protection and kept in protected areas.
Caviar Sommelier greets our guests with alive sturgeon.
Every guests has a chance to participate in the ceremony of getting caviar from the fish and sifting.
Who would pass on the opportunity to get in touch with Tsar’s Fish?!
Everybody gets the chance to taste the caviar first, when not ready – without salt – and then 5 minutes later when it’s ready.
