It’s the month of love and our Sous Chef Sergio says he can’t think of a better treat for your Valentine than a luscious slice of cheesecake
Many of us have been disappointed after trying recipes that look amazing in pictures, only to find they are not quite as smooth, silky or delicious as we were led to believe Well, look no further. Our Chef Sergio has put together a recipe for a decadent no bake chocolate cheesecake.
We know why people love cheesecake, it’s a mixture of the creaminess, the texture and the richness, but we aren’t so sure how many people know the history of it. Without boring you, here’s a brief run down on how cheesecake has travelled the globe. Let’s go to the beginning, to ancient Greece when cheesecake was thought to be a good source of energy and was also served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 B.C. Lucky runners!
Back then it wasn’t quite the same as the cheesecake we all know and love today. It was made up of flour, wheat, honey and cheese. Only years later was cream cheese added by the Americans. Crazy, right? We can’t really imagine the look and taste of that, but we are very happy someone made the concoction as it has evolved in to the pure deliciousness we know today!
Without further ado, let’s get into it.
