Truffles are in general a very rare type of mushroom which grows underground, usually near the roots of certain deciduous trees. Its shape is reminiscent of a relatively unsightly potato, but the centre hides what is literally a luxurious treasure chest of flavour. If you love more pungent and more intense flavours, you have come to the right place. White truffle is in particular found in northern Italy, the most-highly-prized and tastiest only in the Piedmont region. The price per kilogramme of the rarest type ranges from EUR 2,000 to EUR 4,000. This is a truly rare and delicious decoration for any festive spread.
Caviar grains are firm, taste of iodine and have a balanced saltiness. The whole intensity of caviar develops in the mouth in subtle nutty tones. Its typical appearance is shiny. This is a description of incomparable quality. It still holds true that the promised land, as far as caviar is concerned, is France. Have you had the opportunity to try Sturia caviar, Impérial De France caviar or caviar from Russia? Caviar of the very highest quality is made only from sturgeon. There are twenty-four types of sturgeon in the world but genuine caviar is only gained from three of them, these being the European sturgeon (Beluga) which is regarded as the most expensive in the world and also the Ossetra sturgeon (Ossetra). This caviar is characterised by its nutty aroma. Last but not least, caviar is gained from the stellate sturgeon (Sevruga). Caviar from this type of sturgeon boasts a distinct, spicy aroma.
Thanks to breeding and life under specific breeding conditions, people sometimes saying that these animals are almost pampered, products from Japanese cows offer a unique quality. This type of beef comes from Wagyu cattle from Tajima lineage. This is regarded as the highest quality beef of all, this in particular being thanks to the distinct fat marbling. It is these veins of fat which are responsible for the delicious flavour, delicacy and tenderness of the meat. You can pay exorbitant sums of up to CZK 7,000 for a single steak.
