Calvisius Caviar:
White Sturgeon Caviar


OK, we said these were recession-friendly gifts. Here’s our only splurge, and if you’re going to splurge, splurge smart. Calvisius Caviar, served by some of the world’s leading restaurants, farms sustainable white sturgeon, oscietra and other sturgeon breeds in Italy. Their caviars can go fin to fin with the wild Caspian Sea caviars. In fact, Calvisius production standards are consistently higher: The fish eat premium, controlled feed and live in totally guaranteed hygienic conditions. The roe is extracted in absolutely pure waters. The white sturgeon has a creamy, nutty taste and a medium-large, grey pearl (about 3 mm, the largest sized caviar after Beluga). The oscietra will bring you back to the days before endangered species and endangered retirement. The delicate cure uses only 3% salt (pure sea salt), the lowest salt content of malossol caviars. When in New York City, visit the Calvisius Caviar Lounge at the Four Seasons Hotel. In the interim, you can send some to Dad for his big day. Learn more about caviar.

Gary West Smoked Meats:
Steak Strips


We’ve always been big Gary West fans—the jerky is moist, soft, delicious meat that bears little resemblance to most of what goes by the name of “jerky.” Last year we suggested subscriptions to Gary West’s Jerky Of The Month Club for Dad. In this recession, packages of Gary’s Steak Strips in convenient 2-ounce snack packs might hit the wallet better—as many as you can afford. They sure do provide for great pocket-size, protein-packed snacking. Read our full review of Gary West, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.

A recent Top Pick Of The Week, we went nuts for these premium nuts. If Dad is a foodie, get the Truffle Almonds. If he likes the best of everything, the Five Pepper Artisan Cashews or Peanuts are memorable. And if he’s a basic, “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” Dad, the Fresh Roasted Virginia Peanuts (in shell) happen to be the choice of the company’s owner. Read our review of Squirrel Nuts, and then shell out for Dad.
