What should you serve caviar on? When you're presenting a quality product like ours, you don't want to resort to your everyday dishes. The best caviar dishes for serving combine function with fashion, allowing the caviar to take center stage.
Why It's Important
You should have at least one dedicated caviar serving dish in your cabinet. In fact, it's a good idea to stock up on caviar spoons as well.
Pay close attention to the materials when choosing dishes or cutlery for caviar. The composition can have adverse effects on the taste. Metal spoons, for example, will give the eggs a metallic bite. Wood also contributes an "off" flavor and should be avoided.
The following materials are all suitable for serving caviar:
- Mother of pearl
Before purchasing a new caviar serving dish or spoon, make sure it's composed of one of the materials on the list, and take special care to avoid wood and metal. When you've invested in a sumptuous ingredient like caviar, you want to be able to savor every bite.
Top Caviar Dishes For Serving
This serving dish is unique in its inclusion of shot glasses, which are designed to keep six servings of high-end vodka chilled as you enjoy the caviar.
The dish itself has a silver finish, but the flat-bottomed shot glasses and caviar serving bowl are all made of glass. A removable metal rack is in place to hold the glasses and serving bowl just above the ice, ensuring that all the ingredients remain at the proper temperature.
The serving dish is distinguished by a domed lid with a fish-shaped handle, with matching handles on either side of the ice bowl. It's capable of holding a 4-ounce jar of our premium caviar. If you'd prefer to keep various offerings on hand instead of serving vodka as an accompaniment, the shot glass holes will hold 1-ounce jars perfectly.
This is a more basic version of the shot glass server. The broad silver bowl holds just enough ice to chill your caviar, while a removable metal rack holds the glass serving bowl in place. A fish-shaped handle sits atop a rounded lid that's designed to keep the caviar fresh throughout the session.
With its iridescent nacre finish, this dish is a conversation piece as well as the ideal serving tray for sturgeon caviar.
Each model is hand-crafted from sterling silver and white mother of pearl, and features a sturgeon carving along the rim. Measuring about 10 centimeters in diameter, the dish includes a trio of silver "feet" for support.
Our cone-shaped silver-plated serving dish sits atop a triangular pedestal, making the caviar the star of the show. The piece is handcrafted in Argentina and can be used to serve other dishes as well, although the martini-style ice cup makes it perfect for caviar.
The serving dish is made of the finest hand-blown glass and can hold up to 2 ounces of select sturgeon roe. There's also a lid for the dish to help ensure freshness as well as temperature control.
This mother of pearl spoon pairs perfectly with the silver sturgeon serving dish. The entire spoon measures 4 centimeters in length and is crafted from the finest nacre to highlight the fresh, briny taste of the caviar. A round, polished wooden handle allows for easy gripping.
Made from 100 percent polished mollusk shell, this utensil is both serviceable and elegant. The spoon is a lovely iridescent white from the head to the handle, with an inky rainbow abalone accent right at the tip. Like the previous offering, it measures 4 inches long, which is long enough to be functional without sacrificing its delicate appearance.
Although spoons are essential to the caviar serving experience, it can be useful to have a small knife and fork on hand as well. This set, which is constructed from the shells of river mollusks, has you covered.
The spoon is designed to hold the perfect amount of caviar, while the two-pronged fork is ideal for serving escargots. Meanwhile, the 4.5-inch knife has a broad edge designed to spread butter or pate across a swath of toast.
What To Serve With Caviar
When serving caviar, you want the product to be the focal point of the presentation. However,
you can serve accompaniments while still allowing the fresh taste of the roe to shine through.
Consider adding small dishes of butter or crème fraîche alongside the caviar, and supplying a batch of toast points or blini. That way, people who prefer to enjoy their caviar in an adulterated form are welcome to do so. Of course, you should still have the appropriate amount of serving spoons on hand to accommodate the "straight up" crowd.
Remember to keep the caviar at temperatures between 26 and 34 degrees Fahrenheit at all times. The container should be air-tight and properly sealed right up until serving time. If you've followed these rules and purchased serving dishes made out of the right materials, your caviar serving session should be a great success.
