Not quite Beluga caviar, Avruga is surely the next best thing - shiny black pearls of fish eggs that burst with a savoury pop in your mouth. Mix Avruga with tiny peas and bow-tie pasta and you'll get a dish bursting with sweetness and saltiness. ——————————————————————————————————1/8—— by Rosie Stark LOOKING FOR LOVE?

There are three kinds of caviar, varying according to the size of the fish from which the eggs came. The biggest eggs come from the Beluga sturgeon. A female can weigh a ton, a fifth of that being her eggs, which are worth a hefty £290 per 100g. ——————————————————————————————————6/8—— Diary Dates has moved to 370 HOLIDAYS LATEST p170 ITV1 Competition Lovestars Events Hol Index
