Sterling Caviar Two Color Caviar at Benu in San Francisco, one of seven three-starred Michelin restaurants in California, chef Corey Lee serves a lauded $325 tasting menu. As caviar lovers may know, the restaurant is also the exclusive seller of Sterling Caviar’s Two Color Caviar, a rare, brownish green variety that’s known for being especially delicate.
The Two Color Caviar, made at Sterling’s sustainable white sturgeon farm in Northern California, is normally a limited production product. However, the company announced this week that it will be available outside of Benu for the first time ever, so the public can purchase it for the holidays. The combination of white sturgeon roe and salt lend the caviar a vegetal flavor profile with “minerality” and creamy undertones, according to the description—it also has a “firm to very firm” texture, and the pearls are considered large.
