Crafted: Cajun Caviar
BY Julie Gauthier
“What sets it apart from other types of caviar?
Its mild flavor and affordability makes Cajun Caviar very approachable and versatile. Instead of doing a caviar bump or eating it on a bellini, you can add it to oysters, deviled eggs, dressings, nachos, alongside french fries or even Zapp’s chips.”

Caviar dreams, Louisiana style: three women from the New Orleans dining world reboot Cajun CaviaR
BY IAN MCNULTY
"One early sales call that proved particularly fruitful was to Commander’s Palace in the late 1980s, when Emeril Lagasse was executive chef. Bowfin caviar has been in regular rotation at Commander’s Palace ever since. Lagasse has remained a fan, too, and Louisiana caviar has been part of a changing roster of dishes at his restaurants. At Meril, his latest addition in the Warehouse District, chef de cuisine Will Avelar has lately been spooning it over deviled eggs for a gilded bar snack."

The Most Incredible King Cake-Inspired Dishes To Try Right Now
By Stephanie Carter
“The smartest and very best savory king cake out there. Chef Nathan Richard makes the dough from white mountain roll and stuffs it with crawfish and goat cheese. A slightly sweet pepper jelly cream cheese plays the part of the icing, while chili flakes, dehydrated crab fat “sugar,” and green onions stand in for the tri-colored sugars. To make it truly fit for a king (or “make it a Rex”), ask for some Cajun Caviar on top.”
