I was curious about this book. Firstly the beautiful rich image on the cover evoked affluence and style it was tempting right from the start. Not being a great lover of Champagne and not having had the pleasure of real caviar on my palate more than once I was hopeful to learn how to get more enjoyment out of such rare pleasures.The author writes beautifully of her personal tastes and appreciation of caviar (this part is particularly well written). It kindled within me the desire to have some more and also informed me of how to get the maximum pleasure from such an expensive luxury.Anyone who doesn't even want to try caviar and does not want to appear a completely ignorant on the subject could learn enough about the taste (through the author's appreciation) to make anyone beleive that he regularly dined on this noble food.Champagne is an obvious compliment for caviar and it is fitting that this vast subject is covered at the same time.An excellent book for anyone interested in the more "classy" aspects of food.
