In this episode of Eat My Globe, our host, Simon Majumdar, shares things you didn’t know you didn’t know about one of what he calls the “lexicon of luxury.” Along with Champagne, truffles, and lobster, caviar has become an ingredient that speaks of indulgence and opulence. However, that was not the case for all of its long and fascinating history.
So if you want to know why a Russian Tsar insisted his taxes be paid in caviar, why improvements in shipping made caviar a luxury, and why 19th century American bars used to give away caviar sandwiches for free, come and join us on this episode of Eat My Globe.
