Considered Iran’s most precious export and the world’s most expensive food, caviar at its best can tap your bank account for about $113,600 and is one of the oldest delicacies in the world for good reason.

Caviar is commonly known as a delicacy for the wealthiest people. Much like the types and qualities of fine wine, caviar has a range based on the species of fish, how it’s processed and the maturation time. Introduced to high societies during the late 1800s,  the luxury of access is of itself enough for the ego.

Fishermen of what is considered true caviar often wait on average about eighteen years for the source of the best caviar to mature and produce her eggs - the sturgeon fish. History clearly indicates how harvesting this rare species has been detrimental to its livelihood since the high demand has ever increased for a delicacy of this nature.

Traditional beluga sturgeon’s natural habitat is based in the Iranian Caspian Sea and while farmers have done their best to replicate the quality of beluga caviar, like any other genetically modified food, have missed the mark by miles.

If you’ve never been able to experience the taste of authentic beluga caviar, it’s described as delicate as freshly churned butter with a hint of earthy walnut topped with a slight tang and silky texture likened to a bottle of burgundy.

Of the richest people who enjoy the art of caviar, the likes of Barron Trump reported enjoying the delicacy regularly, while actress Mindy Kaling is an advocate of the caviar-based skincare line, ‘La Prairie Skin Caviar’ line retailing at Nordstrom from $200 to just over $500.

As time tells, anything worthwhile is worth waiting for and ethically harvested caviar remains king for cuisine.
