Caviar Guide by Marky's
How to serve caviar in the right way? It's a kind o question that you will never hear from an experienced gourmet or connoisseur but they can talk about this topic for hours explaining the pro's and contra's of each and every traditional way. The first and the most natural way to indulge this natural treasure is right from the tin can or glass jar with an elegant mother of pearl spoon.
It's great and even perfect especially if you are indulging your caviar alone or with your couple but not that convenient for the society unless you use your thumb web to avoid any additional tastes and smells to mix with the natural flavor of the magnificent caviar, just as many purists do. The other way to indulge the caviar and to discover all the tones and notes of the flavor is to put it on some background that will add some texture to it. The ideal canvas for the caviar are the handmade caviar blini. We are glad to offer you two types of blini for caviar — the Russian blini and the French blini.
The pristine Russian blinis are made of wheat flour and are the traditional caviar accompaniment for both black and red caviar as also for many other delicacies like smoked salmon, foi gras, and others. The original Russian blinis historically were much bigger and more nourishing, they were used as a plate and a significant part of the dish, but the modern Russian blini are made much smaller and won't make you count extra calories unless you are too much addicted to them.
The difference between the Russian and French blini caviar is the dough. There can be used any available flour, but most frequently they are made of wheat flour. Another difference is that the French handmade blini are made of yeastless dough and thus they are less nourishing and not as thick as the Russian blinis. You may order handmade blini online in cocktail sizes of 4cm or 7cm and packed in 6, 12, 16, 30 and 36 pieces, best suited for cocktail parties. When you buy blinis in plastic vacuum packs you may be absolutely sure to receive the fresh product.
The ideal supplement and lining between caviar and the blinis is the Crème Fraîche often called a caviar cream. Here at Marky's Gourmet Store we are proudly offering you the best Crème Fraîche you can find in the U.S. that is as good as the original Crème Fraîche made in the French Normandie.

And, of course, it can be used in your everyday cooking for thickening sauces and soups.
A special mention should be made of the quail eggs. Most people used to think that they are just like ordinary chicken eggs but it is not exactly true.
