Last New Year’s Eve, my boyfriend and I rang in 2008 in a Russian-themed bar, Pravda, in New York City. In addition to fanciful vodka cocktails, we had an amazing caviar cream dip served with homemade potato chips. I was hooked, and a year later, I found a similar-sounding recipe courtesy of Martha Stewart. I’m dying to try it.
Serves 8 to 12.
-1 c. sour cream
-1 c. creme fraiche
-7 ounces paddlefish caviar, plus more for garnish
-2 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. finely chopped chives
-Root-vegetable Chips or kettle-cooked potato chips
Stir everything but 2 tsp. of the chives together. Chill one hour, then garnish with remaining caviar and chives. Serve in a bowl set in a larger ice-filled bowl, with chips on the side.
