Chef Eric Ripert Offers an Exclusive Caviar
Le Bernardin chef Eric Ripert has collaborated with the New York–based purveyor Paramount Caviar—which has been one of the procurers of the restaurant’s caviar selection for 20 years—to release a limited quantity of his own exclusive blend of farm-raised osetra caviar that can be shipped or hand-delivered to your home.
The plump, golden roe, distribution of which is limited to a total of 20 kilograms, comes from high-grade sturgeon farmed around the world and has a creamy texture and a nutty, briny taste. It is available in 4- and 8-ounce tins ($525 and $1,050, respectively); each comes with a black mother-of-pearl spoon engraved with Ripert’s signature as well as 16 handmade blini imported from France and a serving of crème fraîche.
