Luxurious Christmas Party Caviar Pie Recipe

how to make delicious christmas party caviar pies
Caviar lovers, fall in love with this festive party recipe that's easy to assemble, yet so yummy and impressive!

I first began to indulge in this delicacy when I was in my 20s, during my flying days with Singapore Airlines. This is one of the courses served to the first-class passengers, accompanied by Vodka or the Dom Pérignon Champagne.

Although I've posted quite a few Caviar Recipes previously, I shall now touch more on the traditional way of serving this gourmet starter for the benefit of those who are new to this dish.

Classic caviar service is simple and elegant. It should be served simply with blini or toast points and lemon wedges. In SIA, the crew serve caviar with melba toasts. Standard garnishes include chopped hardboiled eggs; chopped onion; fresh herbs like parsley, dill, or chives; sour cream or creme fraiche.

There're different grades and types of caviar, but the finest caviar should neither taste fishy nor overly salty. Connoisseurs look for shiny, fine-grained egg globules. When handling caviar, always be careful not to crush any of the eggs as you spoon the caviar out of the tin, as this will release oils too soon and spoil the taste experience.

For my recent Christmas gathering with my girlfriends and hubby, I decided to make Caviar Pies as the hors d'oeuvre for my guests.

Basically, I employed the same method as making my Non-bake Cheesecake to form the base of the pie, and then assembling the accompaniments by layering them into a Caviar Pie.

As I was pressed for time, and spreading the caviar on the pie took time as I'd to be very gentle to avoid crushing the roe, I decided to do smaller circles instead of a big one like I did on my first attempt. Guess who's the lucky one to get the full caviar pie? My son, of course! He's a huge fan of caviar and enjoys spreading them on bread for his breakfast. Talk about indulgence! Lol!

That being said, my hubby commented that the portion of the caviar was too small, which I felt likewise. I shall put aside more time next round, and ensure the entire pie is well covered with caviar.

Although indulging in caviar should be a bewitching experience, its unique flavour can make eating caviar for the first timer a challenge. Caviar should also be served and consumed in quantity smaller than a tablespoon. It's a traditional etiquette to taste caviar in small bites.

Before the caviar service, always place the serving plates or bowls in the refrigerator 1 hour before serving the caviar. This will ensure the plates are thoroughly chilled by serving time.

*Tip: Don't pig out if you're a guest just because caviar is expensive. You definitely won't like to be considered gauche to be eating more than the ample serving.

4 Hardboiled Eggs
