During the Science & Cooking seminar at Harvard in September 2010, Ferran Adria announced the launch of a new commercial product of his exquisite olive oil caviar for early 2011. The olive oil caviar is finally in the market after two years of research and it is commercialized under the brand Caviaroli. I was recently able to taste it and can tell you that the quality of the product is exceptional. To buy Caviaroli from our store click here.

The caviar membrane is thin and easily bursts in your mouth releasing the wonderful aromas of excellent Spanish olive oil which has not been modified with any additives. Caviaroli has great bright yellow color and clean transparency to add a magical touch to any dish.

Caviaroli Olive Oil Caviar by Ferran Adria -720

It really enhances the presentation and the eating experience.  Best of all, it doesn’t need to be consumed immediately like caviar made with basic spherification, making Caviaroli easy and convenient to use.

This olive oil caviar is not made using the traditional method of basic spherification because the sodium alginate cannot be dissolved in oil. It is made using a new technique which surrounds olive oil drops with a thin layer of water with sodium alginate and the drops then go into a calcium bath (basic spherification). Olive oil does not gelatinize, but with this technology, Caviaroli is able to create a thin capsule of gelatin around the olive oil drop to form the olive oil caviar. With this patented method, the olive oil inside the sphere remains pure as it has never been altered by adding an alginate or any other ingredient. As the olive oil contains no alginate, the process of jellification does not continue after the caviar is formed and Caviaroli can be stored to be consumed at a later time.

There are numerous applications of Caviaroli as olive oil pairs well with a wide variety of ingredients. Here are some examples of dishes with olive oil caviar served by Ferran Adria at el Bulli and by other well-known Chefs who are serving Caviaroli.

    Hi, do you know when the recipe for the olive oil caviar might be coming out? Ever since I read this article I have been anxious to try out this recipe. I have been loving all the other ones you have been posting. Thank you!

      Unfortunately we are not going to be able to post the recipe. Caviaroli is made using a patented method that creates a thin capsule of gelatin around the olive oil drop to form the olive oil caviar.

    Hello, I’m interested in this product and I would like to inform me about the lifetime and the conservation. Thank you!

  • Daniel Cox

    I really enjoyed the Caviaroli when I first bought it. At $35 a jar, it was highly cost prohibitive. Now that it is $55 a jar, I have gone to using olive oil foams, butters, crumbs and powders in their place.

    • QuantumChef

      Hi Daniel, glad you enjoyed it. It is a great product. I agree that it is a little pricey but I find it worth it. By the way, the price has always been $55, I think you may have benefited from a temporary promotion.
