During the Middle Ages, British kings regarded the sturgeon as the “Royal Fish,” a luxurious indulgence reserved for the pleasure of the royal court. The name caviar is derived from the Persian word “kavyar,” which means “cake of strength.” Collected from wild sturgeon from the Kura River, these fish eggs were treasured by the Persians, who believed that roe contained medicinal powers.
In the 16th century, caviar quickly became a favorite delicacy among royalty, particularly with Russian Tsars and Iranian sheiks. Theses decadent fish eggs were typically sourced from wild sturgeon caught in the Caspian and Black seas. In fact, it wasn't until the 1800s when caviar was introduced to the mainstream aristocracy, thanks to entrepreneur Henry Schacht, a German immigrant. Due to the high demand of roe and increasing popularity, the sturgeon population suffered from overfishing and became nearly extinct.
Despite overfishing of wild sturgeon and severe quotas imposed by world leaders in the early and mid 2000’s, the caviar industry is experiencing a second golden age thanks to the recent explosion of companies producing sustainable farmed-raised roe.
At Khavyar, we also feature a delightful variety of traditional complements, including crème fraiche from Vermont and French blinis. You’ll also find other essential accompianments such as Mother of Pearl spoons, which help maintain the delicate flavors of fish roe. Add a sprig of dill for an aromatic finish and get ready for an amazingly delicious burst of flavors ranging from nutty and buttery to creamy and piquant.
