Welcome to DC carl, and carolyn and thanks for pulling out this very old thread. I wish I could have had the best of the best also. The best description of good caviar was posted several pages ago........

"When you eat good caviar, it's like eating little pearls of ocean that burst in your mouth."

I've had caviar that tasted like it belonged on the end of a fish hook, and then I've had caviar that burst in my mouth like a sweet and salty explosion of wonderful. I like the tiny eggs best. Beluga, unfortunately, is becoming very rare as it's overfished. You're a lucky girl to taste it!

Only the big eggs can be used for bait. If you get the teeny tiny eggs, you will need very teeny tiny hooks!

OMG. With finely chopped scallions or chives, cream cheese, mebe some sour cream. Caviar on top. Gently place on some good quality crackers.

I don't need to be convinced...Shrek, though! So unadventurous. He says he had enough adventure just asking me out.

ewww, I tasted it once and felt like Tom Hanks in the Movie big , I couldn't get it out of my mouth fast enough, Trying to be polite and wanting to throw up was a task but no one new, being close exit to the bathroom helped. And I love anchovies - go figure.

Goat is delicious. You are going to love it.

When I was about 3 years old I am told I ate caviar hand over fist. Then I went through a period where you couldn't give me a million dollars to put that stuff in my mouth. Now I am back to enjoying it. The description of salty with a slight fishy taste is right on.

I love the black--it does burst in your mouth. One of my favorite ways to eat it is folded into whipped cream...or on top of shrimp salad in 1/2 of an avocado...

That's the key words there. Iranian caviar is far inferior compare to Russian. Now, having said that, if you like it, that only means that you would like the real deal is even more.

But speaking of caviar. I was in Costco the other day and saw that they are selling the caviar. Honestly I did not really pay attention on details, i.e. where itís made, price, etc. But if you like it and you are nearby I recommend checking it.

Also as far as Salmon/red caviar goes, check our Russian stores if you have one near you. Ask for Peter Pan brand, or Haifa Fish, if you can find. Those are two the best brands in America right now.
