Chef's Signature Caviar

pushing the boundaries of the gourmet world

ACCA Caviar by Chef Matthew Accarrino

For San Francisco-based Chef Matthew Accarrino, a hallmark of his cooking philosophy is playing an integral role in sourcing the very best ingredients possible. For the past several years, Chef Accarrino has been directly involved in the production of the sturgeon caviar he uses at Michelin-starred SPQR.

His hands-on involvement goes from fish selection, to harvesting and curing each and every batch of the roe himself. Until this point his caviar was only available to San Francisco diners and private customers.

Now, in a collaboration with California Caviar Company, his handmade ACCA Caviar by Chef Matthew Accarrino is available for purchase at retail in limited quantities.

SPECIES — Our White Sturgeon (Acipenser Transmontanus) is sustainably farmed. In the wild this fish swims along the Pacific Coast of North America and breeds in the fresh water tributaries of the Columbia River and Sacramento Delta.

Matthew Accarrino is a nationally recognized executive chef in San Francisco. Born in the Midwest and raised on the East Coast, he moved west to California in 2007. Matthew’s unique culinary style draws inspiration from his Italian heritage, personal experience, and classical training with some of America’s best chefs.

This includes a strong belief in direct sourcing, producing, and at times playing a role in the creation of ingredient sources. The result is an intensely personal cooking style that is both technically polished and soulful; and which has garnered praise from publications such as Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, Saveur, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and SF Magazine.

Under Matthew’s current direction as executive chef, SPQR has been awarded a Michelin star for the past six consecutive years. Matthew was named a Star Chefs “2010 Rising Star” for his “innovative vision, finesse, and deeply satisfying cuisine,” and in 2011 he took top honors at San Francisco’s Cochon 555 competition.

He has been nominated five consecutive times for the prestigious James Beard Foundation Award for “Best Chef: West.” Food & Wine Magazine named him “People’s Best Chef California” in 2013, and editorially selected him for the prestigious “Best New Chef” award in 2014.

Matthew co-authored and released his first book, published by Ten Speed Press – SPQR: Modern Italian Food and Wine – in October 2012. When not in the kitchen, Matthew is an avid cyclist who has raced at the local and national level.

He also works in a culinary capacity with several elite cycling teams in the Bay Area and a professional cycling team based in Greenville, S.C.

What about storage and serving?

The ideal temperature for storing caviar is 28° - 34° to preserve optimal quality. This is best achieved by keeping it on ice in your refrigerator. Unopened, caviar will last 4 to 6 weeks. Once opened, enjoy your caviar within 5 days. Serve caviar on a bed of shaved ice either in its own tin or in a glass or Mother of Pearl server. read more Get more serving tips here.
