Had the Plaza Golden Osetra at Marche Moderne. Very good. I would order it again.

Yes, but only if you come down to be his snuggle bunny.

Quite possibly the least helpful tasting note ever, including all things Burgundy-related... neener

Bill Tex, I wonder if you can tell me how you get the blinis all to be circular and the same diameter? The batter I am using for my buckwheat blini is so gluey that it's really awkward to handle. Maybe a pastry bag? With spoons, I leave strings of batter in the pan and some pancakes are twice as big as others...

those look like potato slices, not blinis. And they look great!

Those are Russett Burbank taters sliced about a quarter inch thick, brushed with clarified buttter and baked for 25 minutes at 325. For blini, Kristi gets a griddle up to speed and she uses a small ice cream scoop to make uniform size.

Next time you're up north, stop in to Seattle Caviar Co. (http://caviar.com/) Also a good stop for Foie, truffles, etc. I've purchased directly on several occasions with great success, but they do take orders on-line. Close to a fun little wine shop as well (Pete's Eastlake).

The Idaho white Sturgeon stuff is very good.

This year it's sturgeon caviar -- 4.5 oz for $175 -- and no shrimp available.

I'm strongly considering this. Is there a better alternative??

I don't really think there is a true alternative to the proper stuff...

I have been assigned “domestic caviar” for a New Year’s party.

Looking for opinions!

So far, I have found Passmore Ranch. Any experience or other recommendations?

Can't recommend any specific caviar, as I'm not from The States.
But I can recommend serving it with walnut milk - one of the best caviar dishes I've ever had!

Not my picture, found on Google (andershusa.com):

Also found a take on the recipe here (translated from Danish to English): https://translate.google.com/translate? ... edmaelk%2F
