Caviar was originally the food of the peasants, later becoming a delicacy of the wealthy connoisseurs, now newly democratized as a mass market delicacy of the middle class.

We recorded it so that you can learn all about it here:

Learn more about the usage of Caviar during the Russian spring festival of Maslenitza here with The Russian House of Kansas City.
