Snail caviar as a new gastronomic discovery
Chefs around the world have long been aware of the incredible shades of the taste of pearl caviar. Connoisseurs call the snail caviar “forest pearls” for its unique smell, similar to the aroma of the oak leaves and porcini mushrooms on a rainy summer day.
The famous Catalan culinary specialist Feran Adria, whose restaurant was famous for its innovative dishes, tested many experimental recipes using grapevine snails and their caviar.
This rare ingredient has finally appeared on retail sale. Recently they started selling small jars of the delicacy known as pearl caviar to one of the most famous shopping centres in London.
This sophisticated appetizer was created specifically for cava or sherry, an original Spanish national drink. “First, people were afraid to even try a new product,” the farmers say. “But already after the first portion their fear vanished, they were fascinated by this dish and asked for more and more.”
Collecting precious caviar requires perfect precision and thorough attention from a specialist. Caviar attracted gourmets and broke consumer records quite soon. A small can of thirty grams is sold on the domestic market at a price of five thousand rubles. The snail caviar s sold abroad at a much more expensive price (at least three times more).
The fillet of grapevine snails has long been a recognised delicacy of the Mediterranean cuisine and not only this one. In small-town restaurants of the old world, this is not a delicacy, but a quite everyday familiar dish. But probably, not everyone knew about such a delicacy as caviar of grapevine snails, and only a few had the opportunity to taste it.
