Frank Bonanno wants to know: How much would you pay for a caviar tasting?

Here's some food for thought on this fine Friday afternoon. Frank Bonanno, exec chef and owner of Mizuna, just posted a Tweet asking fellow Tweetsters if they'd dish out major dough for a caviar tasting at his fine-dining restaurant.

How much? Between $400 and $600 per person.

That's a lot of Benjamin Franklins, or at least one William McKinley. Any takers?

Given the fact that Denver is a long distance to any ocean and the depleted stocks and contentious harvesting of caviar, the price is the least concern.

If chefs want to have a culinary circle-jerk they need to leave the fish out of it.

Remember, cooking for people is a huge responsibility with profound implications.

Caviar is a preserved food item, so distance from an ocean is not a concern. Additionally, caviar comes from fresh-water (not marine) fish. The question of over-fishing of sturgeon in Russia is certainly a valid one, but there are also domestic producers who are dedicated to sustainable practices. A brief conversation with the organizers of the dinner combined with a little research on your part would be enough to determine if the dinner will be in line with your ethical standards.

For that amount, I would expect a sample tin to take home, and the variety of caviar to be vast.

How much to lick the little spoons?

Oooohh, kinky! I would probably pay $400-600 if the caviar was laid out on a nude female body.

Hawt. Entrepreneurs are totally missing a major opportunity by not opening restaurants that exclusively serve their food on nude female bodies.

If the caviar was laid out on my pleasingly plump female form, they may have to charge extra for the the acreage. Everybody wins.
