So grab your fur coat and brush up on some Russian. Na Zdorovie! “To your health” is the proper toast as you raise up your vodka and commence the feast.


  • Use mother-of-pearl, bone, enamel, or even plastic spoons to serve and eat.
Serve beside plain toast points or blinis (Russian savory pancake).
  • Serve with crème fraiche to compliment the buttery taste of caviar.
  • Try caviar in the style of royalty—as a plain dollop on the back of your hand, and followed by a shot of chilled vodka.


  • Use a stainless steel or silver spoon. The metallic taste will pass on to the caviar.
  • Serve with hard crackers.
  • Top with chopped eggs or onions, as they compete with the taste and texture of the caviar.
