How Much Caviar Should You Buy For Your Party?
Caviar is not a cheap commodity and was often eaten by royalty and the higher class. This delicacy can be so expensive that in 2015, Strottarga Bianco — aka white gold caviar — retailed for 200,000 euros per kilogram. Of course, there are cheaper options out there, and if you plan on serving some caviar to guests, you’re probably wondering how much to buy.
According to the Kitchn, the first thing you want to consider is how you will be serving it — if you sprinkle some on a salmon blini or over sushi, half an ounce per person should be enough. If you serve it on its own, an ounce per person is all you need, but you should always get a little extra in case your guests want more.
Depending on what you want to do with caviar, Imperia Caviar recommends serving it as an appetizer, because the servings are already measured out. Simply multiply your serving size by the number of guests, and you’ll be all set.
