Nothing speaks love like desserts. Be it that drizzling of chocolate on the sizzling warm brownie, an extra teaspoon of ghee on the already laden Gaajar-ka -Halwa, or the unanimous chorus of delight when we tuck into the layered Tiramisu-an Italian coffee-flavored dessert. The pistachio crackle never ceases to amaze when the sweet-salty combination hits your taste buds.
One of the most famous desserts in the world is the All-American cheesecake. The cheesecake is whipped cream cheese, laid out on the crumbly Graham-cracker crust laden with butter, with a glossy berry compote dripping from the top of the cake. With the National Cheesecake Day being celebrated in the US on 30th July, the tale of this melting-in-the-mouth dessert is unique and surprising.
Arnold Reuben, the Sandwich King of New York is credited with the recipe of this cheese cake. Reuben owned the Turf restaurant at 49th and Broadway in New York. He conceptualized the cheese cake recipe inspired by a unique cheese-pie was served to him. The cheese cake which has now become synonymous with the identity of NYC, is attributed to Arnold Reuben’s fine taste and exquisite composition. The National Cheesecake Day is celebrated to honor his memory and gorge on his amazing creation- The New York Cheese Cake!
