Caviar

The name caviar is said to come from the Turkish word havyar, though some believe it is from the ancient Persian term chav-jar, meaning cake of power.

At £20,000 ($30,000) per kilo, Iranian Beluga caviar is the most expensive food by weight in the world. It comes from the critically endangered beluga sturgeon that swim in the Caspian Sea.

The QE2 got through a ton of caviar a year.

Airlines are said to buy 50 per cent of the world's stock for first-class passengers.

Michael Douglas was reported to have ordered £12,000-worth for his wedding to Catherine Zeta-Jones.

During the filming of Titanic real Beluga caviar was used in the first class dining room sequence. After sampling it, Jonathan Hyde said he "made an acting decision on the spot that Ismay was a big eater."
