"I have had Bottarga many times and thought it was a bit of an acquired taste due to its pungency. Cortez Bottarga is delicate and incredibly delicious. The best food experience in years and the best local product I have ever tasted in my 35 years of cooking in this region."
Tommy Klauber - Polo Grill/Pattigeorges
"Cortez Bottarga has a milder, fresher taste and more refined texture than any other Bottarga I have ever used...we love it!"
Chris Kostow - Meadowood
"Cortez Bottarga in terms of flavor, texture, and color is simply the most superior product available anywhere. Given the relatively short history that Mr. Cripe and Co. have in the industry, this accomplishment is truly extraordinary and speaks to the level of commitment they have to tradition and craftmanship."
Travis Lett - Gjelina
"Cortez Bottarga and Anna Maria Caviar are two artisianl American products that are really exciting to work with. They not only support the ideals of sustainability, education, and genuine craftmanship, but create beautifully balanced product in texture and flavor."
