Khaviar and Cavier
khaviar, cavier, caviar beluga, osetra, sevruga sturgeon
Khaviar and Cavier are alternate spellings of the word "caviar". Khaviar and Cavier refer to the salted roe of sturgeon and other large fish that produce similar eggs. The most common type of Khaviar and Cavier are Beluga, Ossetra, and Sevruga Sturgeon caviar.


The origin of the word of the word 'caviar' is uncertain, as most word origins are. It came into English as caviary in the mid 16th century. Shakespeare's Hamlet says of a play that it "pleased not the million, twas caviary to the general", meaning that it was wasted on the masses. So caviar had elitist connotations from the start, at least in the West.

The English word was probably derived from the Italian caviale (earlier caviaro) or French caviar, probably ultimately from medieval Greek khaviari. It is related to the Persian word khag-avar which means "the roe-generator", and which is used to refer both to the sturgeon and to the roe itself.

The Russian word is ikra, which refers to roe in general, including that of the sturgeon. The word 'roe' is from the Middle Dutch word roge. Australians offer spell it cavier, while many European cultures continue to spell caviar with a K, hence khaviar.
