Caviar! Caviar!! Caviar!!!!
Wednesday, November 18, 2020
Please join the Bailliage of Greater Washington, DC, as we bring in the holidays in true Chaîne style with a private Zoom caviar class accompanied by a bottle of Champagne selected by the DC Chaîne’s Vice Ėchanson. In the spirit of the holidays, we are not limiting this class to those in the Washington, DC area, but are inviting confrères and guests from throughout the United States. We will taste and explore a special selection of each of eight separate caviars provided by the Caviar Company of San Francisco. The Caviar Company was founded by sisters Petra Bergstein and Saskia Bergstein, and is a known purveyor of the finest sustainable caviars. This experiential and educational event will be led by president and co-founder Petra Bergstein.
Where else but at a DC Chaîne event can you try eight different caviars side by side while sipping great Champagne, having an in-depth discussion with a caviar expert, and enjoying the Chaîne’s camaraderie of the (on-line) table? We will taste and compare 10 grams of each of the following: Golden Osetra Caviar, Russian Osetra Caviar, Kaluga Hybrid Caviar, Siberian Caviar, Royal White Sturgeon Caviar, Classic White Sturgeon Caviar, Hackleback Caviar and Paddlefish Caviar.
We will ship a bottle of Champagne to registrants directly from the DC Chaîne’s wine cellar, and the Caviar Company will separately ship (via FedEx overnight) a box containing the eight caviars and a mother of pearl spoon, along with blini and crème fraîche. (Registrants may want to have other accompaniments on hand to enjoy with the caviar such as cucumber slices, deviled eggs, slices of cooked baby potatoes, water crackers, chopped egg, chives, chopped onions, and even potato chips).
During the Zoom session, registrants will learn more about caviar, how to taste it and what to look for when indulging in it. This is a luxury tasting and not a full meal. One order should be enough for two people to taste all eight caviars.
