Petrossian Preview


I must work on my salmon colors...
Yesterday was the glorious preview of Holiday caviars and salmon from Petrossian.
Salmon colors in so many forms and shapes and consistencies.
Dollops of caviar on many different tastes

Here on poached quail eggs with crusty polenta lining the plate...
These puff balls look much like truffles but in fact pop in your mouth full of caviar crème.
In the next room the caviar degustation awaits.
A 'flight' of 9 caviars starting with the 'reserve', delicate and not too salty.

9 popsicle stick tastes later we're feeling on top of the world.
There's a wide variety of dreamy Petrossian gift boxes including this keep-it-to-yourself box including the requisite vodka.
What to wear to a caviar tasting?
Black + a slew of Russian-style baubles worn by Coco Jobard, a food designer.
Lastly miniature desserts to cleanse the palette.
Then down the steps...back to reality. Still one keeps dreaming sweet dreams of caviar and Champagne

J'adore the crazy wild necklaces of Coco!
How perfect

Parisbreakfasts said...

If only there were a tour like this...
I'd go everyday or perhaps every other...

Caviar and salmon aside, I love the bold necklaces worn by Coco. Every time I try to go over the top with my jewelry, my daughters say R E A L L Y??? Perhaps it is my combinations :) If you name is Coco, how could you not pull it off! Carolyn

Parisbreakfasts said...

Exactly!
And some of those are from Coco Chanel no less

Well! I am thinking you might be the happiest blogger in Paris! What a lovely event and being the salmon lover I am, I would be in seventh heaven!

Would love to have been with you on this escapade as I do love caviar. You seem to get to do the most exciting things.

Vicki said...

Oh, WOW! Most of all, you continue to amaze me! Your salmon watercolor looks perfect to me. I could be accused of grand theft lox at any and all bar/bat mitzvahs. That is a color I definitely know!
Thanks so much.
XOXO,
Vicki
