Snackshot of the Day: Caviar

Feeling like a splurge? How about some caviar?

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of caviar. Usually, caviar is reserved for special occassions. It tastes especially delicious on New Year's Eve with a glass of bubbly (or so we've heard). But, being that today is Caviar Day, July 18 might have just become our new favorite holiday. Caviar is prized for its rarity and expensive cost. To be considered caviar, it must come from one of three types of fish in the Caspian Sea.
