It might turn your head around...

By itself, I've got to agree, its an "acquired taste" for those on a "Champagne budget"...

Back to "liking" chicken livers, fast fried, with onion, soya, green pepper slivers and cooking oil of arguable description, even if its packed with the "nasty" chloresterals that are deadly to me...

I love chicken livers with bacon and onions or just deep fried.

I think you have to grow up with the caviar to like it. Being Russian I did just that. And having connections and friends in the right places, like places where the stuff was produced for example, sure helped. My mom had some friends who lived near and worked at the place that was producing so cold black caviar. And my uncle worked at the place where the red caviar was produced. We were able to obtain the best of the best of the both kinds. Crème de la crème. And extremely cheap at that.
As a young kid I would eat it with a big soupspoon. :roll:

The best thing is to use piece of good white bread, liberally spread butter on it top it up with caviar. Mmmmm, I can eat probably a half of a pound in one seating, easily.

Darn, I think I’m going to have to run to a Russian store tomorrow and pick some up.

Oh, yeah, how does it taste, well, like heaven, providing you like herring like taste.

For me, caviar is as much about the texture as it is about the taste. People think caviar is delicious because it's so expensive but it's expensive because it not readily available or hard to get.. Caviar reminds me of the candy Pop Rocks in that they burst in your mouth but has a somewhat salty taste. Supposedly the better the caviar the less salty. I find it too intense a taste to eat alone so I like it with something like sour cream. My favorite way to have it in an omelet with Lox, sour cream and then caviar on top of the sour cream. Then, wash that puppy down with a little champagne with OJ (Samosa) and I'm good to go. Hmm, life is good.

I'm much too money conscious to buy caviar very often, but I do love it. Salmon eggs cured in sake are my favorite. I could eat them by the pound!

my roommate is from Iran and last year her parents came to visit and they brought me a small jar of beluga sturgeon black caviar, it's from the Caspian sea and apparently it's supposed to be the best caviar in the world, I enjoyed, we had it on very thin wafer crackers I have had others since but honestly nothing even comes close to how good it tasted, it's salty, slightly fishy tasting, not overwhelmingly fishy, but just very good
