Raspberry cheesecake

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.

  1. In the US, our cheesecake has no gelatine. To me, that’s more of a panna cotta. It’s cream cheese and eggs, essentially, sometimes with a sour cream topping. But I love your variation, especially in the individual glasses! Definitely light and healthy!!!
