Serious Eats: Talk
When the holidays roll around, my tastebuds start craving caviar, which usually at some point gets satisfied at a party or get-together somewhere along the way. However, this year I would like to be the caviar-provider at my little neighborhood get-together. The thing is, I know nothing about buying caviar--I see it in the little jars at the supermarket at $6 to $10 per jar; is that the kind I want to buy? I really can't afford the expensive stuff and don't think my guests would care one way or the other.
Also, once I have purchased this delicacy, how should I serve it? I have had caviar pie several times and loved it, also have had caviar on small roasted red potatoes with creme fraiche. Any ideas from you caviar-afficianados out there?
