The quality of caviar is graded based on a set of factors in which the scorer must answer a series of questions about the product to determine whether the caviar is Grade 1 or Grade 2. The 9 factors that caviar is graded on are egg size, egg color, egg firmness, egg lucidity, egg uniformity, egg separation, egg fragrance, egg taste, and egg maturity.
Yes, eating caviar can have numerous benefits to your health. One serving of caviar is packed full of protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, and vitamins A, B2, B6, B12, B44, C, and D. Caviar is also known to contain a variety of essential amino acids such as lysine, arginine, isoleucine, methionine and histidine.
We strongly recommend serving caviar chilled. Keep it cold by putting the container in a bowl which is placed inside a larger bowl containing ice. Never use silver utensils or any other metals that oxidize to avoid damaging the taste. Begin with two small spoonfuls in a mother of pearl serving spoon, savoring the caviar without chewing to fully experience the delicate flavors.
The ideal complement to our caviar is French blinis and crème fraiche. Serve your guests Skazka caviar with warm blinis and a scoop of crème fraiche and they’ll be your friends for life!
