In case you love cheesecakes (vegan ones, of course) as much as I do, you have opened the right article! This post will provide lots of culinary inspiration and a little bit of cheesecake history for all fans out there.
A cheesecake is basically a baked custard on top of a cookie base. The cream is traditionally made of soft cheese (hence the name!) mixed with eggs, sugar, and your choice of flavors (such as fruit). Cheesecake is famous all around the world, from Los Angeles to Barcelona and Jakarta. But how did it all begin? Let’s find out together!
Historians say that cheesecakes originated in Ancient Greece, around the 5th century BC. Back then, the Greeks were making plakous, a really rudimental type of cheesecake made of fresh cheese mixed with flour and honey until soft. These were then shaped in the form of a patty and then cooked. Later on, cheesecakes were becoming more similar to a tart, meaning that they achieved that well-known pastry base.
And the rest is history. The cheesecake has traveled wide and far until it reached all corners of the planet and I’m 100% sure you tasted at least one piece of cheesecake in your life. And if you did, I’m also pretty sure you fell in love irremediably. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have opened this list, right?
