Actor wants to teach you about caviar. Food Matters,
Actor, comedian and Lakeway resident Bill Kirchenbauer is on a mission to educate people that caviar in Texas isn’t just that black-eyed pea salad that you eat on New Year’s Day. “Little by little, I’ve made inroads,” he says. “But it can be a hard sell.” Kirchenbauer, who appeared in sitcoms including “Growing Pains,” “Mork and Mindy” and “Night Court,” fell in love with the infamously expensive cured fish eggs during his travels around the world and started Lone Star Caviar (lonestarcaviar.com) when he moved to Central Texas. He now teaches caviar classes and sells the product to restaurants, including Hudson’s on the Bend and Lenoir in Austin, (and even to a few celebrities) around the country. For the classes, he charges about $250 a person, depending on the variety and quantity of caviar the customers would like to try. He also offers “caviar in a box,” a variety pack that includes accoutrements. “Even if you try some in a restaurant, most people don’t get to taste four or five different kinds of caviar,” he says. “I want to give people an idea of what’s out there.” To inquire about the classes or place an order for your holiday party, you can contact Kirchenbauer at 636-8265.
