Creating the Lingotto into beautifully shaped bars, like all the fine caviars we produce, takes time and commitment. Fresh Pacific White sturgeon caviar (Acipenser transmontanus) is stored in a mold and aged for around two months. Once Lingotto is properly aged, the flavor is intensified and the texture is firm enough to be shaved, micro-planed or cut into strips.
Lingotto can be used on hot food, in fact, any dish’s warmth rehydrates it and enhances the aromas, making it ready to enjoy.
Recommended combination: shave over lemon zested spaghetti for a pasta that will wow your guests. Slice using a truffle slicer into paper thin strips over potato or pumpkin purée. Pair with crisp dry bubbles, a crisp white wine or vodka.
