Review

Comprehensive ... each recipe in the book includes useful tips and suggestions for variations or substitutes. (Tammy Minn Healthy Cooking)

Recipes are clear and easy to follow. When you make your own they are very fresh, affordable and absolutely delicious. I have been making cheesecakes for about 25 years and this book supplied me with quite a bit of helpful information regarding the basics. My family raved about it and also had to double-check that it was homemade since it turned out so fabulous they couldn't tell if it was store bought or not. (www.backyardbbq.cc.com 2010-07-21)

I have to put a warning on this book. Once you read the tips section and try a few of his recipes you will see how easy and actually quick with regards to prep time that it really is to make a great cheesecake and then you start making way too many of them! I've tried for years to make a good cheesecake and they just never turned out quite right, the crust was burned, or the filling was grainy, or something else was just not right. I have made 4 cakes from this book and each one has been fabulous, bakery quality each time. I'm especially pleased with the section on guilt-free cheesecakes. They're not exactly guilt-free, slightly-less-sinful would be a better description, but you would never know it to taste them.

If you have always wanted to be able to bake an amazing and beautiful cheesecake as the centerpiece dessert of a holiday or party this is the book for you.

Edit added: I've now made about 10 cakes from this book and they have still all turned out perfect. I made the peanut butter cheesecake and brought it to work, my coworkers asked me where I had bought it from since they wanted to purchase one. I also made the minty chocolate cheesecake as the dessert for Christmas Eve. My family raved about it and also had to double-check that it was homemade since it turned out so fabulous they couldn't tell if it was store bought or not.

I've made about 1/2 of the cheesecakes from this book and each and every one of them was superb. Recipes are clear and easy to follow. Make sure you check out the tips at the beginning. If you follow his advice...you can't fail! Happy Baking!

I took George's class at the Morgantown Food Fest. In his class he taught technique after technique for successful cheescake baking. And he writes about all these techniques in this book. I'm enjoying his book, and the savory cheesecakes have been a big hit in our family! I highly recommend this book.

I planned to take a cheesecake class taught by George Geary at a local cooking school. When I was forced to work on the day of the class, I ordered the book from Amazon and decided this would be my substitute for taking the class.

Although I have only tried one of the recipes (Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake), I believe that as I work through the rest of the recipes, they will all be as amazing as this one. I took this one to my family Thanksgiving dinner and everyone just LOVED it!

Be sure to read pages 8 through 20 (especially "Basic Techniques for a Perfect Cheesecake"). I have been making cheesecakes for about 25 years and this book supplied me with quite a bit of helpful information regarding the basics.

The book has plenty of pictures as well as 13 recipes for sauces/toppings to serve over your finished cheesecake.

I can't wait to try more-next on my list are the Turtle Cheesecake and the French Apple Cheesecake.

I love food so much - especially cheesecakes. That's why I review exercise dvds so much; because if I eat cakes like this, I have to exercise. This book is mouth watering and addictive. I have tried so many of the cakes and while not always are there good results, it's not the books fault. The collection is amazing. You'll feel like you are at the Cheesecake Factory's dessert section. No matter what your flavour of choice is, you will find it in here. Of course you cannot go wrong with the regular baked, but experimenting with the recipes is most of the fun (appart from eating them). If you love pottering around in the kitchen and beautiful desserts, then I totally recommend this book. It's great and easy to follow and the results are the best.
