Still, none of us would cross it out of the menu for another important occasion. We just want to know the reasons why in most cases caviar costs quite a lot. How much is caviar different from other scrumptious delicacies and what can explain these differences?
That’s absolutely healthy academic interest. So, right now we’re going to find the real-life facts which could satisfy it. Here are a few enticing characteristics of caviar, which could shed more light on its pricing:
Exactly. There are even several separate criteria for determining quality of caviar. It doesn’t mean, however, that Grade-2 caviar is worse than Grade-1 caviar. Here are the main features of such a division.
Grade-1 beads must be large and firm. You know, just the pick of the bunch. They are intact, but very delicate, have fine even color and mild flavor.
The main differences between the two grades lay in the size and sometimes flavor of caviar grains. Grade-2 beads are usually smaller. Their flavor has more tanginess. But the other characteristics are mainly the same.
Looks like you are ready to face these truths now. Every self-respecting store can present a caviar price list to you. So you can view how much you are requested to pay for such a gastronomic pleasure.
Remember that if you purchase it from a tested manufacturer, cheap caviar (or it would better to say “cheaper” caviar) doesn’t mean a product of lower quality. You’ll see that the caviar price per pound differs remarkably. It depends on the fish and conditions under which it was raised. To say nothing of the way the roe was obtained from it. Accordingly, expensive caviar is not a guarantee that you will like it more. It all depends on the taste. The world of caviar is as fascinating as the world of wines, and its connoisseurs are called exactly this way – caviar sommeliers!
If you’re going to try a particular delicacy for the very first time, you’d better pay attention to the caviar price per ounce. One ounce is equal to almost thirty grams. This amount is acknowledged enough to enjoy two lavish bits. Or try caviar samplers in sets.
