There are only a few spots left in tonight’s Russ & Daughters Caviar Class.
December 5, 2011 ︱ 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
In The Study at Astor Center
Caviar has long been on the short-list of ultimate gastronomic experiences and luxuries, yet few people have the knowledge to be discerning when eating or buying caviar.
Josh Russ Tupper and Niki Russ Federman, 4th generation owners of Russ & Daughters, will demystify caviar in an evening that is educational and unpretentious.
This insider’s primer will teach you how to select, taste, judge, and present caviar so you will feel confident and knowledgeable eating and serving this precious delicacy, whether it’s for your next big event or just for two. Along with the tasting, Niki and Josh will share information about the history of caviar, the evolution of the caviar trade, terminology, and anecdotes. This evening gives you the opportunity to learn from the Russ family’s nearly 100 years of experience as premier caviar purveyors, and to become a caviar connoisseur for yourself.
About the presenters:
Niki Russ Federman & Josh Russ Tupper: 4th Generation Owners, Russ & Daughters
As a 4th generation member of the Russ family to run Russ & Daughters, you could say that Niki Russ Federman was pretty much born in a herring barrel with a slicing knife in her hand and a penchant for caviar. Josh Russ Tupper began his professional career as a chemical engineer on the West coast before choosing to come back to New York to continue his family’s 100 year-old appetizing legacy. Purveyors of the highest quality smoked fish, caviar, and specialty foods, Russ & Daughters is New York’s premier appetizing shop.
Since 1914, this landmark NYC institution has been continuously owned and operated by four generations of the Russ family. In the same spot on East Houston Street, and run by the same family, for nearly a century, Russ & Daughters continues to provide the tastes, traditions, and old-world class of a true New York experience.
