Our good friend and brand ambassador, legendary Michelin star-spangled chef André Jaeger, is currently enjoying some intercultural treats in the Middle East, while celebrating his birthday.
Coincidently, his business liaisons over there created a birthday cake, using our – meanwhile famous – Black Pearl. The multi-awarded chic caviar cooling receptacle.
*Raising glasses* Here’s to one of the greatest chefs in Switzerland. We salute you and wish you a great stay!
Looking forward to some gourmet indulgence this very Easter.

Now look what the cat dragged in!
The following was shot by a satisfied (and highly empathic) customer of ZwyerCaviar.
I know, “you own a dog, but you feed a cat.” (Jenny de Vries)
And it is a general knowledge that “9 out of 10 prefer it”. (Whiskas)
So, even if “a dog will flatter you, you have to flatter the cat.” (George Mikes)
It is written, that ”thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods”, and it seems that “cats have never forgotten this.” (Anonymous)
And this fact does not bother us at all, because ”there are two means of refuge from the miseries of life:
music caviar and cats.” (Albert Schweitzer / Caviarist)
But if these two come in a package, remember this: “In a cat’s eye, all things belong to cats.” (English proverb)
Good old Mr. Mark Twain captured the essence of our position towards cats saying ”if man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat.”

Last month I went to Dubai and Abu Dhabi for an intensive meet and greet with several parties. It was a unique experience and – thanks to the great hospitality of my fellow partners on site – a memorable one.
I was positively surprised about the great support I received from virtually any person I came across.
This was not the case with the heat hitting my face right after touch down. It was even worse than expected. As an Alpine mountain lion, dealing with ‘the desert’ was the hardest part. I really had to be crystal clear about my intentions before stepping out of the – oh, so beautifully airconditioned – car.
Many times I would have preferred the meetings being held inside my white Chevrolet, than in that ultra-luxurious hotel lobby, just meters away. The way getting there felt like a death trap to me. And apparently my body system did not blend in after days.
But nevertheless, when I sat on my punnet inside the 777, I was armed with endless good moments. This was a trip to be remembered of. And my thanks go out to John, Johnny, Geith, Ali, Girar and the many nameless helper on my way (including the nice navi-assistant who brought be safe back again)…
ZwyerCaviar is currently being placed in hot locations across the UAE (yes, pun intended). When facts drop in, I babble them out. Letting you know where to go for a nice caviar treat in this fascinating and friendly melting pot we all know as the UAE.
I finish this short travelog with the words of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and some snapshots:
“What makes the desert beautiful, is that somewhere it hides a well.”

A fan of ZwyerCaviar created a delicious recipe which I would like to share with my fellow readers. It’s in english and french.
And it’s a no brainer. Easy to follow. But brings nevertheless quite an extravagant experience to your palate. Depending on your generousity of course…
My thanks go out to Celine for creating this exquisite dish and sharing it with us!

Albeit it might not be considered actually as ‘fresh news’, it fits seemingly well in my blog about caviar and for caviarists.
Back in 2005 the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow decided to remove Alexander Kosolapov’s “Icon Caviar” from its exhibition about Russian Pop Art after receiving heavy criticism and even threats from local Orthodox church.
Here’s the picture of that infamous piece of art:
If interested, I recommend you read the following article about that art scandal that shaked Russians art-community some years back: BBC News

Nothing at all, suggest Louis Vuitton and Hyundai.
See the commercial, aired during the last super bowl.

It’s just plain great to know, who is checking up my blog. Which audience. The old saying goes: keep your friends close. But keep your enemies closer. Well, sure thing. I might just do that.
Some Germans within the caviar industry asked me last week – in a not at all polite way – to delete a post. It was about some missguided info about them. Supposedly. Something they wanted to see vanished from the face of the earth. But hey! My blog is just that: my blog. And as much as you would like me having total control over the internet (thing again!), I cannot guarantee that this blogarticle will pop out the net anytime in the future.
So, this goes out to whom it may concern:
Lay back. Dont panik. And do yourself a favour: play! Its the internet. Its the 3rd millenia. Its the grey zone. Get updated. Or get out.

The artist Marilyn Minter created a pretty erotic video. Its – besides caviars erotic sidenote - very far away from anything related to caviar, actually. But the given title of this video (Green Pink Caviar) must be enough reason to post this under the clown fish category…
Madonna decided recently to include this 9min. video into her current Sweet & Sticky tour. It will appear during the opening song ‘Candy Shop’. Source

Nothing against the lifestyle of the super rich. But there’s a limit for everything. Not so much for the guys at beveryhillscaviar.com. They are offering ‘caviar’ (actually its salmon roe) for dogs…

Here is a very informative youtube video (23min long) about caviar in general. Mostly about the Russian caviar industry and the Caspian Sea (states).
But there is also a short chapter about the Russian artist Andrei Logvin and his caviar-poster mentioned in an earlier post. Watch the video between 4:55 min – 6:25min…
