Caviar, Now In Cube Form
Caviar, lovely as it is, lacks a certain ease of use. If you've ever longed for a cleaner caviar here it is, the caviar cube. The NY Times reports that for the last 20 years the United States Fish and WIldlife Service has not permitted the import of pressed caviar because it is too hard to tell what sort of sturgeon it came from. But now Petrossian is making cubes of pressed caviar from farmed California transmontanus. The black cubes are packed in oil and can has a variety of purposes including adding a luxe twist to pasta. The oil, which takes on a fishy flavor, can also be used for cooking or seasoning. The Caviarcubes sell for $45 for around 18 cubes.
