The word "caviar" derives from the Persian word "khav-yar", which means "cake of strength." It is said to help us restore our physical power and enhance good health. Caviar is a famous party food and also regularly served by most airlines to their first-class passengers. Loaded with vitamin A, zinc and omega-3 fatty acid, it is believed to increase blood flow to the genitals and stimulate the formation of testosterone. For people who have to limit their cholesterol and sodium intake, however, caviar should only be a rare treat.

Caviar Recipes
Caviar in Potato Nests
2 medium russet potatoes
2 ounces caviar
3 ounces cream cheese
4 tablespoons melted butter
Grounded black pepper
Boil water in a saucepan.
Add potatoes. Cook until only half-done. (You should be able to insert a knife through the potatoes but not too easily.)
Set aside and let the potatoes cool down.
Peel the potatoes and grate them roughly.
Brush muffin tin cups with melted butter.
Fill each cup with grated potatoes. Make it look like a nest. (Make about 20 - 30 nests total.)
Bake them in a preheated 450ยบ oven for about 25 minutes or until they turn golden-brown.
Remove from the oven and set aside for 5 - 10 minutes.
Remove the nests from the tin cups carefully with a blunt knife. Season with pepper.
Fill each nest with one scoop of cream cheese and one scoop of caviar.
Caviar should be served in glass, ceramic, plastic or wooden containers. Never serve or keep caviar in a metal container because oxidation can easily impart metallic taste to it.
Always keep it refrigerated, but not frozen.
The most popular alcoholic drinks to be taken with caviar are Champagne, Vodka and dry white wine.
