Photo of the Day: An Assortment of Caviar

Caviar technically comes from the sturgeon, but many companies label other fish roe as caviar. Each has a distinctive taste (some briney, some fishy, some earthy - all fairly complex) and texture (some crunchy, some mushy). It's always fun to try different kinds of caviar (to compare and contrast). In this case I tasted a variety from Tsar Nicoulai at the Fancy Food Show (they most easily found everyday at the Ferry Building in San Francisco).
