I’ve been enjoying caviar all of my life, and although it’s a bit of an acquired taste, it is like nothing else on earth. Buttery, nutty, earthy, there are many ways to describe this treat of kings, but one thing is certain, it’s a rare delight to be savored. Perhaps you’ve asked yourself if you would even like caviar if you were given the chance to try it, or maybe you just want to know what does caviar taste like? It’s not for everyone I’ve been told, but if you are curious, read on in our article titled Caviar: will I like the taste?
Maybe you’ve seen caviar in elegant films or on coastal menus, and perhaps you may be wondering, what is caviar? The unfertilized fish eggs are called caviar. They are also recognized as fish roe. It’s a delicacy which is served cold. The true caviar derives from the wild sturgeon, which belongs to the family of Acipenseridae. While the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea produced much of the caviar for an extended time, the caviar produced on farms has now become well-liked as the populations of wild sturgeon have been diminished from overfishing. The caviar that is most prized derives from the osetra and beluga sturgeon varieties. The beluga caviar is among the rarest, largest and the most expensive of all the available caviar in the world. The caviar has the delicate taste, greatly like the oysters, and is normally put on the little puff pastry cup and topped with the crème fraiche.
One thing you probably already are aware of is that caviar is very expensive. But why it’s so costly may surprise you. Caviar is so rare and pricey because the process is so involved. Let’s talk a little bit about the fish whose eggs became so desired for a lot of centuries, and why its that this fish’s eggs are very difficult to get. The answer of it actually lies in the fish itself. The sturgeon beluga is huge; in the rarest of cases it can weigh more than two thousand pounds and growing over twenty feet. Furthermore, it can live for over a hundred years. As a result, the female sturgeon beluga has an extremely long maturation cycle, which can be around twenty-five years before she is finally ready to lay eggs. It denotes that the caviar farmer has to spend huge amount of his or her time, cash and resources feeding and raising the beluga sturgeon before making the investment back.
But how to describe the taste? To be honest it is a unique experience to eat caviar. You can find different kinds of caviar in the market, all have differences in their appearance, texture and taste. Nevertheless, all types of caviar has some characteristics in common. For instance, the first flavor wave you get is a little briny, salty with a little fish-like taste, after that a short idling taste. The next flavor wave that you get will be after a few seconds of the first one, it transitions into a bright, smooth or nutty lasting flavor. As for the texture of it, the roe’s skin has some resistance, a little more than the others. It frequently produces a bursting feeling in your mouth when rolling he caviar over the tongue.
