CHEFS SIGNATURE

Jacques Pépin’s Pressed Caviar (Payusnaya)
California Caviar Company is proud to introduce the first domestic pressed caviar on the market. Developed by legendary chef Jacques Pépin, our pressed caviar combines the nutty flavor of White Sturgeon, the assertive full sea flavor from Paddlefish, and the creamy, rich taste of Hackleback roe.

Developed by CCC for legendary chef Jacques Pepin, this delicious full flavor “payusnaya” has a smooth paste texture with unlimited versatility.

This pressed caviar is comprised of the roe from three American species of sturgeon. The White Sturgeon (Acipenser Transmontanus) is the primary caviar used and it 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. The Paddlefish (Polyodon spathula) and Hackleback (Scaphirhynchus platorynchus) caviars are from two wild sturgeons found throughout the Midwest North American river systems. They are both freshwater species and mainly inhabit the murky shoals and deep pools found throughout.

PRESSED CAVIAR — Versatile and fun to cook with, Payusnaya can be rolled out thin between layers of plastic wrap and cut into circles to top seafood tartar. Freeze it slightly to firm up the Payusnaya and shave off ribbons with a vegetable peeler or micro plane to garnish pasta or risotto dishes. Add it to sauces before serving to give extra flavor and depth. You can also mold into shapes or simply spread onto buttered brioche toasts.

ACCA Caviar by Chef Matthew Accarino
For San Francisco-based Chef Matthew Accarino, a hallmark of his cooking philosophy is playing an integral role in sourcing the very best ingredients possible. For the past several years, Chef Accarino 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 Accarino is available for purchase at retail in limited quantities.
