[Costco] Quintessence Oscietra Sturgeon Caviar 50g $100

I guess YouTube figured to brighten my dull life starting from my taste. It recommended me a video about caviar farm featuring Gordon Ramsay.
For someone like me who never had carviar, I will give a shot if Gordan says yes. Anyhow, with broken wallet, I found and ordered this caviar on sale on Costco.ca. I hope it will surprise and become my new indulgence.

Edit: put price in the title

With his mouth.


On a serious note...if you really want to enjoy the delicate tatse of caviar...you eat it with a plastic teaspoon. :)

This is a pretty decent price,

I can’t speak for this stuff, but I bought a bunch of the Calvisius stuff from Costco a couple years ago @ 50g for $94 and while the quality of that stuff (and I would assume this as well) doesn’t really compare to the higher end stuff (those that are more granular and with bigger eggs) the flavor was good.

I could eat this every day.

Mm, toast points, creme fraiche, some minced egg yolk + egg white.

And a glass of champagne (vodka if you're more traditional Russian).

You probably want to use a plastic spoon or if you are fancy one made of mother of pearl, so as not to impart a metallic taste on the caviar.

I have had good caviar and do not see the value.
Salty watery little balls that pop in your mouth.

When you explain it this way I totally agree, not something that is appealing to me or that I would ever want to experience.

no, i would not recommend this brand, tried their combo last year, only one of the 3 was ok.
if you have to purchase from costco, the Acadian brand is better

At $99 it's not bad for 50g.

When trade shows were around, you could get 50g of these same caviar of the same brand for $74.99 at the Gourmet Food and Wine Show. It was $140 for the 100g.

Goes very well with a sweet sparkling to provide a contrast from the saltiness of the caviar. Best served chilled.
