About National Caviar Day

When is National Caviar Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 18

Something fishy is going on today. It’s National Caviar Day. Now, just what’s all the roe about this July 18 holiday!? Today is all about a very pricey hors d’oeuvre. You can pay over $7,000 USD for some of the finest caviar on the planet.

Caviar is salted fish eggs, or “roe”. It is considered a delicacy. Caviar is enjoyed by the upper class and those of us who occasionally can afford a little of it, just so we can say that we had some. Russian Caviar is reputed to be the very best, most sought-after of all caviars. There’s red caviar and black caviar, along with other colors. Black is considered the best. Perhaps you should do a taste test.

The most prestigious, and best(??) caviar comes from sturgeon found in the Caspian Sea. But, other fish, including whitefish and salmon, are less expensive alternatives. Which caviar truly tastes the best? We’ll let you be the judge.

Did You Know? The highest price paid for caviar was $34,500 USD. The roe was golden white and came from a sturgeon.

Happy National Caviar Day!
