For 5000 years caviar has been firmly anchored as a delicacy in almost every great culture and has been produced unchanged for centuries. Even the Ancient Egyptians and Phoenicians understood how to preserve fish eggs for times of war and famine by salting. In Ancient Greece caviar was served with fanfares at banquets and in Roman literature it is described that a bowl of caviar cost as much as a hundred lambs. The Persians in turn used caviar as a medicine and the Russian tsars considered caviar to be „the food of the gods“. In the 14th century the Venetians brought the delicacy to Europe where monarchs issued decrees making every sturgeon the king’s property.
