Caviar is true delight, one of the quintessential luxury foods, and enjoyed worldwide. OlmaFood.com is proud to produce and import some of the world’s finest caviar. We fuse the best of the traditional, centuries-old Russian expertise and production techniques—with America’s state-of-the art technology, and quality assurance methods. And whether you are a caviar novice, or connoisseur, OlmaFood.com has the caviar for you.
Two principal types of caviar are black caviar, from sturgeon; and red caviar, from salmon. Both black and red caviar have many wonderful varieties.
Osetra is one popular black sturgeon. Osetra is a medium-grain caviar that ranges from a dark to light brown with golden highlights. Their eggs are very firm, and have a nutty flavor. Golden Osetra caviar is a much rarer type that is golden-yellow, with a very rich flavor. Since the Sevruga sturgeon is much smaller, it has a small grain. Sevruga caviar has a dark to light gray color, and a bold, intense flavor.
Red caviars are harvested from salmon. In addition to having a distinct, delectable taste, red caviar is also extremely nutritious.
At Olma XXI, we are the source for all caviars, including black, red, kosher, and more. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding caviar—regarding the many different types, caviar’s rich history, or the latest recipe ideas.
With all caviars, we recommend that you keep your caviar refrigerated until shortly before serving. Fresh caviar is traditionally served in its jar or tin, nestled in a large shallow bowl of crushed ice, with its lid resting alongside. Always serve caviar with a mother-of-pearl spoon, and never crush the eggs. Never use sterling silver: it will leave the eggs with a metallic taste, and the eggs will discolor your spoon!
There are many great modern recipes using caviar, but caviar is often best served simply. You may accompany caviar with fresh toast points, potatoes, or blinis. A dash of lemon adds flavor—but anything else can distract from caviar’s beguiling. Caviar is traditionally paired with iced vodka, black tea, or champagne, and toast.
