The only cheesecake cookbook you'll ever need...
on April 23, 2011
I own at least three cheesecake cookbooks but this my favorite. The recipe instructions are clear and easy to follow even for those who are new to baking. Although not every recipe has a photo, the illustrations are stunning and you'll get a good idea of the finished products.
The book starts off with a great introduction that includes basic techniques and equipment, common ingredients and FAQ. Next are 200 recipes divided into twelve categories like Fresh Fruit, No-Bake and Savory Cheesecakes (you should never need another cheesecake recipe). Each recipe is accompanied by tips and variations as well as the author's valuable insights. Another plus for me is the baking technique does not require a waterbath which is tricky for a novice and can result in a soggy crust.
After searching everywhere online(including eBay) Amazon had the best price and you can even add a Fat Daddio cheesecake pan to your purchase to make sure you qualify for free shipping.
