Today is the end of 2011. It has been weeks that I haven’t met the church friends. Most of them are married. Meetings around the festive time were cancelled. Fortunately, the meeting today will be on. A new trial, Manhattan cheesecake from Eric Lanlard, will be served. A colleague asked me what Manhattan Cheesecake is. Well, I think it’s just a name. Manhattan is in New York, right? If you know the difference between New York and Manhattan Cheesecake, please tell me.
I like this one. It is smooth, melting in mouth though it is baked. I guess the trick is the addition of sour cream and low temperature baking. The kick of fresh lemon lingers in the mouth for a long while, can even take the equivalence of wine’s long finish.
The cake can be either served on its own, with bare decoration with strawberry or blueberry coulis.
