New York Cheesecake..

Hi everyone!

A while ago I posted about the history of Cheesecake, do you remember? I’ve told you that I would also post my cheesecake recipe, but in the meantime I discovered this amazing recipe by the greek chef Akis Petretzikis! My mother loves him and this summer we prepared several dishes by his instructions.. This cheesecake is completely different from the one I make and I have to admit, that is far tastier! You definitely have to try it!
