What more delightful way to celebrate any occasion -- or no occasion, for that matter -- than with the classic pairing of two sublime tastes: champagne and caviar? Champagne's effervescence complements the delicacy of the roe, making this the perfect combination. Along with lovely photographs, a New York Times food columnist tells the story of these two unique delicacies, and reveals the secrets of just how and why they work so elegantly together.

Robert Pike is an American Checker Federation MA Champion. Graduating from Brown University, he served as a Navy Jet Carrier Pilot & then a sales/marketing executive in Health Care Companies with three medical device patents. Years ago he was introducing his grandchildren to this "Granddaddy of Boardgames" and their interest started him off on an extensive, but unsuccessful, search for a primer on this not-so-simple mind game. So he wrote "Winning Checkers For Kids" and, for younger audiences, "Checker Power." He also produced an award winning video, "Learning to Play Better Checkers" to incorporate visualization into the learning process. Pike's colorful checker materials and captivating classroom presentations have beenenthusiastically received by students and educators, who find that the "magic of checkers" provides a stimulating, multigenerational challenge that develops critical thinking, strategizing, problem solving, perseverance and attention span, while also building important social skills. His Checker Puzzles have been featured in "Highlights For Children" magazine. He lives in San Diego.
