Cheesecake

WHAT’S IN THE MENU?
Cheesecake

During an excavation on the Greek island of Samos, physical anthropologists came across cheese moulds, dated circa 2,000 BC. That makes it very likely that the origins of a beloved dessert may have its origins lying deep on this island. Some more evidence sheds light on cheesecakes and how they were served to athletes during the first Olympic games held in 776 BC, since the Greeks considered cheese to be a good source of energy. These special cakes were also used as wedding cakes for Greek brides and grooms, made from flour, wheat, cheese and honey. The first ever Greek cheesecake recipe was recorded by Athenaeus, a writer, in 230 AD. According to this recipe, the cheese had to be pounded until it turns smooth and pasty, followed by mixing the pounded cheese with honey and spring wheat flour in a brass pan. It was served after it was cool. When the Greeks were conquered by the Romans, their recipe was modified; the Romans added crushed cheese and eggs to the original recipe. Calling it ‘libuma’, the Romans served cheesecakes on special occasions, baking under a hot brick and serving them warm. Amongst the Romans, all credit goes to Marcus Cato, a politician who recorded the oldest Roman cheesecake recipe in the first century BC. With the Romans conquering more lands, their recipe started spreading too in Europe, with each country adding their traditional ingredients to the original recipe. According to the first cookbook which was printed in 1545, the cheesecake was described as a flour-based sweet food. Around the 18th century, Europeans started using beaten eggs instead of yeast to make their breads and cake rise. Once the Europeans started migrating to America, they took their recipes along with them. But the classic element that was added to the cheesecake was in America only when a New York farmer accidentally created cream cheese in 1872. One of the most popular styles of cheesecakes is the unmissable New York cheesecake which is served without any fruits, chocolate or caramel. The signature flavour to this style of cake comes from extra egg yolks in the cream cheese cake mix. The man credited for the New York Style Cheesecake is the German, Arnold Reuben.
