Caviar — food of the gods, and relished by lesser mortals too. For centuries the salted roe of the sturgeon has been highly prized — the ancient Phoenicians used caviar to sustain them in times of war and famine; Pliny and Ovid wrote about it; and the Russian Tsars and the Emperors of Manchuria reserved for themselves the delicate golden caviar.
Today caviar is widely available in a bewildering range of quantity, color and flavor. In Caviar Susie Boeckmann and Natalie Rebeiz-Nielsen reveal how to distinguish between the different varieties, how to serve it for optimum flavor and enjoyment, which drinks to offer alongside it; and even how caviar is considered a beauty treatment and aphrodisiac — not for nothing is it called "Aphrodite’s eggs".
Illustrated with fascinating archive material and sumptuous photography, the book offers a complete range of enticing caviar recipes from a simple boiled egg or jacket potato with caviar to exotic canapés, pasta, fish and sushi combinations and that Russian essential, blini with sour cream and caviar.
The art of eating and enjoying caviar has never been made easier.

Here's an easy tip for being green: collect a few canvas bags and use them when you grocery shop instead of taking the store's plastic bags (do they really have to triple-bag everything?) Some stores will even give you a discount for bringing your own bags, too. You can also reuse the thin plastic bags found in the produce section- either keep them for your next shopping trip, or hang on to them for food storage or for use as gloves when handling chiles.
