Caviar Spread


  • caviar
  • 1 red onion, thinly diced
  • 1 bunch chives, thinly chopped
  • thinly chopped egg (great to do in a food processor)
  • 2 tubs creme fraiche
  • 1 package cream cheese
  1. Mix 1 1/2 tubs of creme fraiche with 1 package cream cheese until combined.
  2. Add creme fraiche/cream cheese mixture to the bottom of a  spring-form pan or dish with a lip on it (we used an elevated serving pedestal).  I recommend using a spatula to evenly spread it out. Make sure to wipe any extra that may get onto the edges of the dish (a clean dish is critical to a pretty layered presentation).
  3. Add chopped red onion on top of the cheese mixture, then sprinkle with chives.
  4. Next layer chopped egg.  Continue using a clean spatula to evenly distribute each layer.
  5. Finally top with caviar.  This is a tricky layer because you want to try very hard to not mix the egg in with it (although that is bound to happen).  Just work slow and steady!
  6. Refrigerate at least one hour before to allow it to set.
  7. Serve with toast points and champagne!
