Caviar has long been on the short-list of the ultimate gastronomic experiences and luxuries, yet few people have the knowledge to be discerning when eating or buying caviar. Building off the success of our caviar primer classes which demystify caviar in evenings that are educational and unpretentious, Josh Russ Tupper and Niki Russ Federman, 4th generation owners of Russ & Daughters, have created this gift package which provides everything you need to savor the allure of caviar on your own, to serve it to guests, or to give as a gift. The Russ family is happy to share their nearly 100 years of experience as premier caviar purveyors so you can become a caviar connoisseur yourself.
The Russ & Daughters Caviar Primer gift package includes a hand-packed tin of the finest American Transmontanus: with its large beads and beautiful dark brown hue, this caviar most closely resembles the look and feel of traditional Osetra, and is harvested for us from the White Sturgeon of the Sacramento Valley. Serve this caviar in a stunning glass-in-glass caviar presentoir (beautiful as well as functional, this is the optimal vessel for protecting as well as presenting these delicate caviar beads), along with a handmade mother-of-pearl spoon. The caviar is paired with our traditional blini and crème fraiche. All wrapped in a signature Russ & Daughters insulated caviar bag.
