Just thinking about cheesecake makes me want a huge slice of the light, airy delicacy with a graham cracker crust and smooth creamy vanilla centre, topped with a favourite topping of cherries, strawberries, blueberries, or streusel – or you may select for yourself if you like. Then you’ll understand why I like cheesecake. Let’s face it, the very fact that a delicious cheesecake exists and tastes nice is enough reason to like it. It’s rich, not too sweet (if you select the proper one), and it’s made with cheese, one of the world’s most popular dairy products.
We’ve all had the sweet pleasure of enjoying cheesecake, generally in a colossal portion. I, for one, am a great cheesecake lover, and after a taste test, I can honestly declare that Lahore has some of the best cheesecake options and you’ll see why.
John J. Sergreto writes in his book Cheesecake Madness, the strong delight and admiration of cheesecake stretches back to 230 A.D.
It is said that the Romans were first exposed to cheesecake while attempting to conquer Greece, which seems to be the first cheesecake consumer. The original recipe comprised of pounded cheese, wheat flour, and honey cooked and then leaving it to cool down. In the seventh century, the first reported cheesecake was served to athletes during an Olympic tournament in Greece because it was thought to be an excellent source of energy in ancient Greece and was even provided to athletes during the Olympic games. Later, the Romans experimented with this newly discovered delicacy by adding eggs, baking them under rocks, and serving them warm. It then expanded to other European nations before making its way to North America as immigrants sought fame and money across the Atlantic. They had no idea that the cheesecake recipe they brought with them would spawn a massive following of cheesecake fans and grow into a multibillion-dollar business around the globe. However, we all owe our gratitude to the Americans for introducing the decadent cream cheese to the scrumptious cheesecake.
There are several cheesecake recipes around the globe. Some of them seem to be more appealing than others. Cornstarch and egg whites are used instead of the cheese in a traditional Japanese cheesecake recipe. Conventional Greek recipes call for feta or mizithra, whereas Germans prefer cottage cheese-based dishes. The Italian approach is to use Ricotta and Mascarpone cheese.
