July 18th National Caviar Day

Considered a snack for high society these Sturgeon eggs have been served for hundreds of years to the elite. Though the Sturgeon provides most of the “roe” other fish do provide lesser quality eggs where the black caviar is considered better than the red caviar. The best of it seems to come from Russia with some going for thousands of dollars for just few ounces. In fact, some caviar has actually put certain fish in the endangered species category since these eggs would be used to maintain the fish population in the world. While many love caviar you need to like fishy dishes to enjoy most of them. I will not be endangering the species or creating a demand for roe, so if you like it… you can have my share.

How to celebrate – If you have never tried caviar, give it a shot. Travel to Russia to get the freshest caviar. See if you like the black better than the red.


July 18th National Caviar Day

Roe, roe, roe your boat! Today we celebrate the first person who ever found fish eggs laying there and thought, oh, I bet that would be great to eat! The best caviar is consider those eggs that come from the sturgeon in the Caspian Sea, (That’s Russian) and the black fish eggs are considered better than the red. Well, we eat chicken eggs so why not fish eggs? They are sort of small so it’s kinda hard to crack the shell open and fry them. That was a yolk by the way, don’t even try. It sort of figures that something that looks kinda nasty and doesn’t smell all that good would become some of the most expensive food to eat. If you can even call it food. It’s sort of a snack that you eat with crackers. You have to be really, really rich to make a meal of it. I find it a little ironic that yesterday was National Hot Dog Day, a common man’s food, and today is National Caviar Day, a rich man’s food. Maybe combine them! A hot dog smothered in caviar!

How to celebrate – Taste test which caviar you like the best. Vacation in Russia. Become wealthy.
