Bites of Elegance: How to Serve Caviar

Indulge in a luxurious treat with your family and friends this holiday with caviar! We carry several varieties including the three highlighted here. A couple things to remember when serving is to keep it cold! Serve in its container nestled in ice. Secondly, caviar and metal do not play well with each other (it seriously ruins the taste), so use a spoon made with bone plastic or mother of pearl.



Raised in Kentucky and hand packed for freshness, Kentucky Spoonfish Caviar is uncommonly mild and flavorful with rich, luscious, bright berries. It's a favorite with some of America’s best chefs.


The bright orange hue and delicious taste of salmon comes across with bright flavor. It also happens to be one of nature’s richest sources of health-promoting Omega-3. Try on roasted potatoes with sour cream or garnish Eggs Benedict.


This versatile caviar has the subtle, nutty flavors to delight on its own, but also has a potency that shines within any cuisine. Let these dark beads pop within pastas, salads, over eggs, or within a dollop of crème fraîche to truly unlock their briny magic.


Although the most expensive caviar really should be eaten on its own, some garnishes help highlight and not mask its delicate flavor. Try chopped hardboiled eggs, sour cream or crème fraîche, or simple herbs like fresh dill and chives. Have some fun with the presentation!

You'll also want to provide a serving vessel. Blini is a buckwheat-style pancake with a very neutral taste. Toast points or boiled potatoes also serve the same purpose. We also love caviar on DLM Brioche Bread that has been buttered and toasted.

Caviar, garnishes, blinis, and more!

Hi Deborah! We have a variety of caviar, including the three mentioned here, in our stores. Although we don't have the spread pictured prepared and ready for pick-up, we have a selection of garnishes (sold separately) so that you can pick and choose your favorite pieces for your own caviar spread.
