This isn’t strictly ice cream related (see my earlier post about seeking warmer treats for cold weather) but I want to address that cheesecake Bethany mentioned. It was really, really good, but also very intense, with the result that it lasted a surprisingly long time. (It’s gone now, though.) Even so, I remain a purist when it comes to cheesecake. Oh, it’s fine to put fruit on top, but once you start adulterating the actual cheesecake itself with things like chocolate or pralines or amaretto, it’s no longer quite cheesecake, in my book. It can still be a darned fine dessert, but not cheesecake.
All of which is making me want to go back to New York City for some of Roxy’s cheesecake, now that I think of it.
So, branching out a bit from ice cream, where else can one fine truly spectacular cheesecake? (Keeping in mind, I’m a purist!)
