Our holiday season always begins with Thanksgiving when Chris, our younger son, makes his famous sunny-side-up eggs on honey toast with shaved truffles on top and proceeds to a complete, luxe caviar service.  This luxury is only possible because a whole bunch of eaters pool their resources.  Otherwise we’d all be eating eggs and bacon and skipping the caviar.  But, if we skipped it, we’d really miss out on what to me has always said “Let’s celebrate!” – a chilled tin of caviar, a glistening bowl of chopped egg, and a glass of bubbly.  As you can see from the photo everyone must agree as on this past Thanksgiving that tin of caviar disappeared mighty fast.
Since we can no longer get the really, really expensive Iranian roe, we put our faith in the folks at Tsar Nicoulai Caviar (www.tsarnicoulai.com ).  Their paddlefish roe is superb and quite affordable.  The paddlefish is a sturgeon’s cousin and the roe it produces is often called “American-style sevruga.”  It is our choice for a large crowd.  The company was founded on the vision of sustainability which makes the caviar a guilt-free purchase.  We plan on celebrating again on Christmas and New Year’s Eve.  Won’t you join us?
