Boca Raton, FL (PressExposure) October 18, 2012 -- The holidays are fast approaching, and in these modern times, no gift is more appreciated that one that combines quality, price, and eco-friendliness. And this year, once again, Gourmet Food Store is offering just that, in their selection of environmentally-friendly, sustainable farmed caviars.
Overfishing has been a very big and very real problem for sturgeon populations in the Caspian Sea, even driving CITES to ban the consumption of the wildly popular Beluga, until it could recover from almost extinction. This led caviar producers to search for sustainable alternatives, which resulted in farmed caviar. "There's this myth around some gourmet circles that good caviar only comes from Russia or Iran, "says Jon Knigin, owner of GourmetFoodStore.com, "people don't realize that all you really need to have great caviar is Sturgeon fish with great genetics, clean, fresh water, and know-how". He continues, "aquafarms are very natural environments with pristine water, where thefish is from the same species and stock than the Caspian Sea varieties, and raise it optimal, controlled conditions. It's ideal."
Gourmet Food Store is inviting its customers to incorporate their line of farm-raised caviars in their holiday entertaining and gift baskets. Says Knigin, "Our customers are educated, sophisticated people, concerned about the world we live in and its resources; we'reproud to offer them a range of high end, top quality products that are also good for the environment". The selection of farmed caviar includes varieties of Osetra from France, Italy, Germany, Uruguay, and Israel.
For those who also prefer to buy local products, Gourmet Food Store also offers a delicious Farmed White Sturgeon Osetra from California. "California White Sturgeon is one of our best-selling caviars, "says Knigin of this domestic variety "it's raised right here in California from a domestic species very similar to the Caspian sturgeon". He continues, "it has a great flavor, the quality is superb, and the price is incredibly competitive."
