Cooking with Caviar: Summer Recipes with Caviar

Caviar is literally one of the “coolest” foods and a perfect accompaniment to many traditional summer fare. Using even the least inexpensive caviar will add sophistication and elegance to any event. A dollop of this delicacy can transform a mundane salad into delectable extravagance. Recipes with caviar can be prepared with the roe from wild or high quality farm fresh Caviar. Although warm weather entertaining typically conjures up a hot grill and all the fixings, summer recipes with caviar can have guests reminiscing about your gathering through fall and even into the winter months.

Whether you are hosting a casual backyard affair, an elegant summer night soirée for a few close friends or an intimate dinner for two, top it off by pairing caviar with some classic favorites. Below are a few ideas of how you can enhance your summer recipes with caviar.
