Cheesecake is a wonderful dessert that can accommodated to anybody’s liking ( except kiwi and pineapple for technical reasons) . In Ireland our cheesecake is chilled , often set with gelatine or fruit flavored jellies . Unfortunately some chefs add way too much jelly to the mix which make the cheesecake hard and taste like sliced of jell-o . I seen in America the cheesecake is baked and i tried once a new york baked cheesecake , it was delicious. Last week , i watched a french TV show starring ” CHRISTOPHE MICHALAK” one of the best pastry chef in the world talking about his version of the cheesecake in which he doesn’t add any gelatine and instead make a mousse textured cream . I tried it yesterday and after a night of chilling in the fridge , it is the lightest cheesecake I’ve tried and yet still creamy and tasty , it is definitely my favorite cheesecake recipe so far.
