Payusnaya Caviar Paste
This unique caviar paste, Payusnaya, became a passion project for Calvisius.
An age-old Russian tradition, Payusnaya was traditionally produced with second grade eggs, harvested from overly mature sturgeon, and its recipe contained a high salt content which resulted in a bold fishy flavor.
It was used as nutritional bars ante-litteram by Russian soldiers during the Tsars military campaigns.
Acquiring the original recipe from Russian specialists, Calvisius’ caviar team developed their Payusnaya by mastering the Russian technique of lightly salting the eggs and hanging them in a linen bag to drain excess moisture.
Only premium grade Pacific White Sturgeon caviar is used, which lends a consistently smooth, creamy flavor; the result is a unique caviar paste that boasts intense, pure aromas.
A true Old World delicacy that has been elevated to the distinguished Italian standard of Calvisius and promises a notable caviar experience!
Shelf life: 90 days, unopened, from ship date
