Many delight in the distinctive decadence of caviar. This smooth, flavorful, and rich delicacy tantalizes the palate. July 18 is a day in which caviar aficionados from around the world pause to commemorate National Caviar Day. As you do so, consider some delectably novel ways to celebrate this occasion with your friends and family.
“When I started this company with my sister, we saw National Caviar Day, a holiday that recognizes caviar, as an opportunity to thank the customers and chefs who supported us from the beginning, says Petra Bergstein Higby, Co-Founder, and CEO of The Caviar Co. “As a purveyor of caviar, we are committed to bringing customers both quality and education. There is so much amazing caviar out there and we want to show people what high-quality caviar really is and what makes it so special, allowing for people to truly indulge!”
Some of the amazing offerings of The Caviar Co. include The Ultimate Caviar Flight, Intimate Caviar Cooler Gift Set, and the Caviar Party with a 250g Tin. Individual tins consist of Siberian Sturgeon, Kaluga Hybrid Caviar, Russian Osetra Caviar, and Imperial Golden Russian Osetra Caviar, and several others. Visit their stunning Caviar & Tasting Room in the heart of downtown Tiburon, California. In honor of National Caviar Day, Caviar Flights & Bites at Tiburon will feature live music, champagne, and tins of caviar from 12 noon to 9:00 pm.
“National Caviar Day is a day to celebrate and recognize the art, history, and delicacy of caviar. Caviar provides a unique vehicle for celebration and fellowship. Although we believe every day should be celebrated, July 18th should be extra special,” says Windom Paul, Communications Manager for Petrossian. “For over 100 years, the Petrossian family has been perfecting the art of caviar. Our caviar is crafted through careful attention to detail, rigorous standards of quality, and a passion for excellence.”
The Petrossian Family curates superior grade caviar. Select from Ossestra, Kaluga Huso Hybrid, Beluga Hybrid, Sevruga, Alverta, Baika, and Shassetra. Exclusive gift sets include the Masterpiece Trio, Caviar Tasting at Home, and Limited Edition Special Reserve Caviar Coffret.
As a special touch, Wahoo! Wine & Provisions in a posh district of Decatur, Georgia recommends pairing caviar with wine or champagne. “Pairing with Caviar should not be as difficult as one might make it out to be! Keep it simple and think to either ‘compare or contrast’ with the flavors of caviar. Contrast with light and airy sparkling wines. Possibly look for Alsatian sparkling or lighter Pet-Nats (petillant natural)”, suggests Ski Peterson, owner of Wahoo! Wine & Provisions. “If you are looking for a weightier touch, go for aged champagne that will highlight a slight creaminess. Compare with coastal wines like Greek or Sicilian Whites. The coastal whites will showcase body plus a touch of added salinity from the sea.”
Inquire about having your very own private affair in the city in which you reside. With reservations in advance, Wahoo! Grill, can host those in the vicinity of Atlanta for an exclusive Caviar Tasting Event. Select the perfect bottle of wine from adjacent Wahoo!

“Have a fun get-together while enjoying a discussion of pairing favorites. Even try making your own caviar cocktails at home,” says Ski. “Make the cheeseboard of all cheeseboards. Find your favorite thing to pair with caviar such as Crème Fraiche, light airy pastries, crackers, pickled beets, and even cantaloupe. One unconventional pairing and a personal favorite is Lay’s chips.”
