Goat Cheese Cheesecake

Mergi direct la reteta Goat Cheese Cheesecake

Cheesecake is a dessert I recently discovered and began to love and one that I kept trying to make perfect because I could see the potential in this amazing dessert. So bit by bit I started adding all sort of flavors into the cheesecake, but one that stood out was goat cheese. I don’t normally eat this kind of cheese as I find it a bit too strong for my taste buds, but in this goat cheese cheesecake it is so well balanced by the sweetness of the cheesecake cream and the subtle vanilla flavor, that I couldn’t resist having just one slice! In the end, just like any other dessert, is about balancing the flavors out, making sure they do not cancel each other, but support one another. It’s not an easy task for a pastry chef, but it’s compulsory because the essence of pastry is the taste at the end of the day!

This goat cheese cheesecake is so creamy! The secret is the baking temperature and making sure the cheesecake cooks slowly at a lower temperature. If you manage to keep a low temperature whilst creating some steams in the oven as well, the cheesecake tends to set, but never crack. After all, this dessert consists of cheese, but also of eggs which begin to set at certain temperatures. Too high and they turn into omelette, too low and they are not cooked enough and safe to eat. So it really is a fine line to discover there, but once you do, you will notice a change in the way your cheesecake looks and even more, tastes, because the texture of the final dessert is impacted too.

The ingredients of this cheesecake are very simple and the recipe itself is incredibly easy to make. Apart from adding goat cheese though, I also changed the crunchy layer. Instead of using a graham cracker crust which tends to become quite hard in the fridge, I used an almond crumble which remains softer and easier to cut and eat. Plus, the almonds are delicate enough and pair well with the goat cheese. Just a touch of vanilla brings everything to a whole new level, but I’m thinking that lemon zest or lime zest will work just as good.
