Side dishes and drinks to really enjoy the caviar

As an accompaniment to caviar, we recommend blinis made from buckwheat flour, swell potatoes, smoked salmon, egg or lightly buttered toast. Of course, caviar can also be enjoyed “naturally”. Ice-cold vodka (burnt 3 times), champagne or a dry white wine are suitable as a drink.

The history of sturgeon caviar

Ancient civilization

 

There are many myths and legends associated with caviar. If one follows reports of the Greek philosopher Aristotle, it was already in the 5th century BC. BC Caviar and sturgeon brought to Greek banquets with trumpet fanfares and floral decorations.

But it was the ancient Persians who invented salted caviar and to which they ascribed medicinal powers. Legend has it that the word caviar comes from the ancient Persian word “khav-yar”, which means “cake of strength”.

Another of the more common legends about the origin of the word caviar is that the word caviar is derived from the Persian “khag-viar”, which means “little black eggs”.

What we know for sure today is that fishermen on the Caspian Sea and the Volga did not begin to eat caviar as a delicacy, but rather as a staple food. The main reason that caviar became so expensive was rather the fact that it could spoil quickly without the use of refrigeration and that it was only available seasonally to a very limited extent. This made the caviar fascinating and interesting for tsars, princes and nobles.
