A big hit for a small price!
on March 28, 2001
This little book may seem at first very plain... no colorful pictures inside, no glossy pages. But it does what you want a cheesecake cookbook to do: it gives you 50 mouth-watering recipes, plus 17 extra recipes from "special places" such as The Plaza Hotel and The Regent Beverly Wilshire (all of which are simple enough for the average baker to handle).
The lack of pictures is a plus for me. I don't find myself stressing over whether or not my finished product looks as perfect as the one in the photo, as I do with other cheesecake cookbooks with pictures.
The book has yet another bonus: instructions on how to avoid cracks forming in the cheesecake as it bakes, how to give a cheesecake away without giving away the bottom of your springform pan, and how to slice the cheesecake as perfectly as restaurants do.
Overall, a great buy.
