Russian Dacha brand strenghtened with boutique selection
Russian Dacha a beautifully restored suburban villa, which is listed as protected cultural heritage, is a powerful, intriguing story in itself. Due to its architectural peculiarity, the villa is an unusual, but due to its interior and furnishings, probably the most authentic preserved symbol of Slovenian bourgeois life at the beginning of the 20th century. Developing the Russian Dacha brand includes in its strategic design unique, boutique services, such as the possibility of renting a royal Rolls Royce limousine or traveling in small groups to inspirational places. Villa is also available for rental, sleeping up to six people.
Today, Russian Dacha unveiled the first two products of its culinary line, which reinforce the boutique orientation of the brand. These are top quality products, and both are in their category the first to carry a Slovenian brand. Caviar and champagne.
Russian Dacha caviar
When mentioning Russian cuisine and its specialties, caviar is one of the first dishes that comes to mind. Probably because in the 19th century, caviar found its way to the tables of wealthy Europeans from Russia, even though the ancient Greeks and Romans already knew this specialty.
True caviar – one that may be officially called so – is derived from sturgeon family of fish. For the best culinary experiance, Russian Dacha has selected for its brand, a caviar of Russian sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii), which is considered to be the most traditional among the top caviars and among the connoisseurs one of the most revered. It is the first true caviar carrying a Slovenian brand. For Russian Dacha it is supplied by a renowned Italian manufacturer Caviar Giaveri.
Caviar is best eaten on toasted bread with butter. According to Russian tradition, a well-chilled caviar is eaten on warm blini (блины), small thick pancakes, with some crème fraîche.
Russian Dacha caviar almost dissolves in the mouth and there is a real ritual how to properly put it on the table. Due to being slightly salted it keeps quite well, but the taste can be spoiled by contact with any metal. That is why there are special caviar spoons, made of wood, bone, and in the most luxurious version from mother-of-pearl.
For the caviar to have the right temperature on the table, special – and decorative – containers are use. A container filled with ice carries a covered, glass or porcelain dish with the caviar. Add a mother-of-pearl spoon and a glass of champagne and an imperial feast is ready.
