FAQ for Caviar

  • What is caviar?

    Specifically, caviar is the roe of the sturgeon fish – and only the sturgeon. Though some mislabel items such as salmon roe “Salmon Caviar”, only sturgeon roe is technically caviar.

  • How long will caviar stay fresh?

    Petrossian caviar is always packed to order. Fresh caviar should be refrigerated until served, stored preferably in the coolest part of your refrigerator. Unopened, its quality is maintained for four weeks. Once opened, caviar should be consumed on that occasion.

  • What is a typical portion size of caviar?

    The ideal serving is fifty grams per person. You can split that 50 gram tin between two people for an intimate tasting. 125 grams is ideal for two people, while four people could share 125 grams for a small tasting.

  • What is the difference between the grades?

    Most Petrossian caviar comes in three grades - Classic, Royal, and Tsar Imperial. Difference in taste between the three grades is distinguishable only to the most established caviar palate. The biggest difference between the grades is the size and color of the caviar bead - the more prestigious Tsar Imperial has a large, bold pearl, while the Royal and Classic grades typically have slightly smaller pearls with a darker shade.

  • How should I serve caviar?

    A special presentoir designed by Petrossian showcases our caviar with a truly elegant presentation. So as not to break the eggs, caviar should be spooned carefully onto lightly toasted bread or directly in the mouth with Petrossian spoons - not metal, which can alter the taste. Serve fresh, premium quality Petrossian caviar in its original perfection.
