Upon receipt, caviar should be stored in the coolest part of your refrigerator until served. Placing it on a sealed bag of ice or ice pack will help keep the roe extra fresh. Unopened, the caviar will last for up to 4 weeks. To maintain the quality of your experience, caviar should be consumed upon opening. However, it will last under refrigeration for 2 to 3 days after opening.
Caviar is an exceptional experience on its own and can easily be enjoyed with no accouterments other than a spoon. However, you can also enjoy this exceptional roe with a mild base, such as blini (small pancake, often made with buckwheat), crème fraîche, diced onion, diced hard-boiled egg, and capers. Potato chips with a dollop of crème fraîche and caviar is another heavenly endeavor.
