While caviar has long been on the short-list of ultimate gastronomic experiences and luxuries, we recognize that few people — even the most seasoned hosts and gourmands — have the knowledge to be discerning when eating or buying caviar. This is why we have teamed up with our friends at Astor Center to present “A Caviar Primer with Russ & Daughters.” Led by Josh Russ Tupper and Niki Russ Federman, 4th generation owners of Russ & Daughters, this class will demystify caviar in an evening that is educational, unpretentious, and delicious.
This insider’s primer will teach you how to select, taste, judge, and present caviar so you will feel confident and knowledgeable eating and serving this precious delicacy, whether it’s for your next big event or just for two. We’ll also serve up a few perfect wine and spirits pairings, to show you the techniques behind expertly matching your favorite libations to your next caviar experience.
Along with the tasting, Niki and Josh will share information about the history of caviar, the evolution of the caviar trade, terminology and anecdotes. This evening gives you the opportunity to learn from the Russ family’s 100 years of experience as premier caviar purveyors, and to become a caviar connoisseur for yourself.
Only 36 seats are available for this intimate tasting. Tickets are $150, but Russ & Daughters customers can use the code RDCAVIAR for a 20% discount.
