Husband wants caviar tomorrow night - what goes with it?

What would you serve it with? I've never had caviar at home - only out. I'm thinking blinis and creme fraiche. But I'm wondering what to serve afterwards. I'm not really in the mood to cook anything too complicated but takeout after caviar doesn't sound too great! Thanks.

  1. If he likes caviar as much as I, a spoon will suffice. Another good one is a little sour cream in a Belgian endive leaf with caviar on top.

    1. Shellfish? I am having lobster for the two of us. Cracked crab too would be great.

      1. Fruit. Maybe a poached pear. A panna cotta if you must.
        Whatever you decide, a grappa would be nice.

        1. If it's quality caviar, then the only thing that's needed is your company.

          1. A poached egg (on toast/salad) is a good pairing if eating caviar straight out of the jar is out of the question. Then vanilla icecream.
