There are so many stories behind the mystery and mystique of Caviar, one of the most popular says that the word “Caviar” is derived from “Kahv-Jar,” which means “the cake of pleasure” among Iranian people known as the Khedive. Another legend claims that the word “Caviar” has developed from the Persian “Khag-viar, “which means a “small, black fish egg.” And yet believe it or not before Caviar was ever regarded to be a delicacy, it was considered a poor man’s food and was indeed the basic food of fishermen on the Caspian Sea and on the Volga!
