Cavʹiare (3 syl.)

.

Caviare to the general. Above the taste or comprehension of ordinary people. Caviare is a kind of pickle made from the roe of sturgeons, much esteemed in Muscovy. It is a dish for the great, but beyond the reach of the general public. (Hamlet, ii. 2.)

All popular talk about lacustrine villages and flint implements … is caviare to the multitude.”—Pall Mall Gazette,
