Caviar Crush Set:
Hackleback has a small jet-black bead and a light, creamy flavor with a firm pop. Perfect topped on blini, chilled tuna tartare or warm fingerling potatoes. Pair with a wine that has subtle and floral notes to compliment the nuttiness of the caviar. Caught according to sustainable fishing practices in the vast Mississippi-Missouri river systems.
Paddlefish, the most assertive of all American caviar, has a small gray bead and a sharp, briny finish similar to its distant Caspian cousin. Pairs beautifully with anything from smoked fish and fresh oysters to a glass of Rosè. Caught according to sustainable fishing practices in the vast Mississippi-Missouri river systems.
Bellwether Crème Fraiche, a classic French-style cultured cream, has a rich, nutty flavor with an appealing tart edge. Made by Bellwether Farms, makers of award winning artisan cheeses. Rounds out the caviar's flavor without overpowering it.
Shelf life: Unopened and refrigerated, your caviar will last 5 weeks. Once you open it and expose it to air, you should eat it within 5 days. Recommended storing temperature is 28-32 degrees, keep in the coldest part of the refrigerator between two ice packs.
