Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar + Chicha Peruvian Restaurant

Stop right there. If you don’t know what caviar is – I suggest reading, “13 Things You Didn’t Know About Caviar” before reading my recap of the Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar tasting event hosted at Chicha Peruvian Restaurant. If you already know what it is, please read on! 🙂

Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar was founded in March 2015 by Dorina Ceapa and Cornel Ceapa. What’s so interesting about Cornel is that he’s the only person in Canada to hold a PhD in sturgeon biology. I had the pleasure to meet Cornel and his wife at this media event. And what’s a media event without taste testing some delicious new dishes right? Specifically, sturgeon caviar with Peruvian food in this case. I’ve had salmon caviar before, but I have never tried sturgeon caviar. So to have sturgeon caviar incorporated into different Peruvian dishes – it’s definitely a unique experience for me. I didn’t think that I could love Peruvian food more than I do already, but by adding sturgeon caviar…it takes these dishes to a whole new level!
