Even so, we of course have some advice for you. And if you’re hoping to serve some caviar soon – like, perhaps, on Valentine’s Day? – these are ten things to get you started, including chic caviar spoons and serving dishes. We hope that you enjoy.

The best brands and accessories to know about when enjoying caviar

1. Caviar from Petrossian

Petrossian is the place to start when ordering your caviar. They have seven different varieties to choose from, in five different grades, as well plenty of information to help you “raise your caviar IQ” and make a selection.  If you’re a novice like us, you can browse the different types, each of which comes with a little description – such as “for the sophisticated” (this is the Ossetra), “for the adventurous” (Kaluga Huso Hybrid), and “for the romantic” (Baika). And since Petrossian’s caviar concierge program delivers only the best, you can rest assured that there isn’t a wrong choice to make. If you’re feeling indecisive, perhaps go with one of the best sellers, such as the infallible Royal Ossetra Caviar. And don’t forget to add some gift sets, truffles, charcuterie, and other delicacies on your way to checkout.What to know about caviar

2. Regiis Ova Caviar by Chef Thomas Keller

Or, if you want to keep things simple, head to Goldbelly, and order farm-raised caviar from Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller. Regiis Ova is sustainable and fresh, and you know it’s excellent – it’s the same caviar served at Keller’s restaurants, including The French Laundry. Choose the caviar that seems most appealing to you (with options that include a Siberian Baerii, a Russian Ossetra, and a Salmon Roe), or make things easy for yourself and go with the The Temptuous Trio. This comes with 30-gram tins of the three greatest hits – the Ossetra, the Royal, and the Baerri – a branded tin can opener, and a mother-of-pearl spoon. It’s one and done.

3. Caviar Spoon, Set of 4

Ah yes, the spoon. Other than the caviar itself, the spoon might be the most important part of the caviar experience. When serving caviar, you must steer clear of certain materials, or else you risk affecting the flavor of the fish. Mother-of-pearl is the recommended spoon, and that’s what we have here. Four of them. Order this simple set from Williams Sonoma, and you’ll have nothing to worry about.

4. Oyster Shall Caviar Dish

And while we’re on the subject of the spoon, we may as well discuss caviar serving dishes. The same rule applies – mother-of-pearl is best, to make sure you’re enjoying maximum taste with every bite. These mother-of-pearl dishes are made to look like oyster shells, and they will guarantee you a good time, in both taste and aesthetic. We happen to love the way they shine.

5. Stainless Steel Caviar Dish

If mother-of-pearl is not for you, there’s no need to panic. Some metals are okay to use, such as stainless steel. And with this stainless-steel caviar dish, you’re also getting a full set of vodka shot glasses, and spoons that are made out of horn – another caviar-safe material. This is a great choice if you want the full set-up, and you’re planning to get a bit theatrical with it.

6. Crème Fraiche

Now that we’ve covered the caviar and the serving dishes, let’s talk about accompaniments. Other than toast points, you’re going to want a few items to serve along with the main event. Crème fraiche is always a great choice. Olma Caviar – another solid place to look for all things caviar – sells one that is handmade in Vermont, and would be a great staple to have around.

BUY NOW – $8.

7. Blinis

Like crème fraiche, blinis are a classic caviar pairing. And you won’t find better than the ones at Russ & Daughters. These thin Russian pancakes are the perfect vehicle for caviar, and we know you want to eat them. Consider using these blinis to turn your caviar spread into a special brunch event.

8. American Caviar Trio

And while we’re talking about Russ & Daughters…If you really don’t want to worry about how to serve your caviar, why not order one of their special sets? They all look amazing, but if we had to choose just one, we would choose the American Caviar Trio. It comes with three different kinds of caviar – Hackleback, Paddlefish, and American Transmontanus – thirty-six blinis, crème fraiche, and yes – a mother-of-pearl spoon. If you aren’t in the mood to worry, you know you can count on Russ & Daughters.

9. Champagne

No matter what time of day you’re enjoying your caviar, you’re going to want something to drink with that. And there’s a reason that champagne is the classic choice. Either pick up a bottle from a local spot that you like, or go with the iconic choice – a bottle of Dom Perignon. Make an occasion out of it.

BUY NOW – Price Varies.

10. Master Class

We told you that Petrossian was the best – well, now they can tell you themselves. If you find yourself fascinated by all of this, get yourself on the waitlist for one of their next caviar master classes, where they will teach you everything you need to know about caviar, and about champagne. There’s a whole world out there to discover, and they’re the best ones to guide you through it. Sessions are held in New York and offered regularly, they fill up fast, so make sure to keep your eye on the prize.
