I must confess that baked cheesecakes have never appealed to me, much less New York Cheesecakes. Rich, dense, and creamy are the most alluring adjectives to describe a dessert to the preponderant population save for the oddball who is writing up this post right now. I do have a fiendish sweet tooth but my preferences tend to sway over to the lighter side of the spectrum such as Korean shaved/ snow ice, Asian herbal jellies, macarons etc.
Only twice have I actually been impressed and enamored with a baked cheesecake- first and foremost from the infamous Cheesecake Factory in America, and the second being from The Fed. No bias involved but I was actually surprised at how this turned out. Yes, I think I’m slowly starting to like this indulgent treat indeed.
Of course, one must take hundreds of photos as proof that this rare occurrence actually did happen (and narrow it down to only a few as not to overload my media storage space). A slight film effect, a dainty cup of tea, and voila~
Pair with seasonal summer fruits, preferably one with slight acidity to cut through the richness. Be sure to share with friends and family and obtain their undying loyalty to you (yes, that’s the only reason why I like to give away baked goods :P)
