If the recent ban on Caspian Sea Beluga caviar, due to pollution and overfishing, dampened your holiday spirits, take heart.
Sustainable and sensual alternatives are available closer to home. Sterling Caviar, from white sturgeon farmed in northern California, is an admirable stand-in for its Russian and Iranian cousins. Along with other American caviars, including paddlefish, salmon and trout, it gets a green light from environmentalists—and a thumbs-up from our staff kitchen.
