26 May – Blueberry Cheesecake Day

 

Blueberry Cheesecake Day - Elizabeth Place

Today is Blueberry Cheesecake Day!

Although cheesecake recipes can be traced all the way back to Ancient Greece, the flavoured versions we know and love today are a fairly recent innovation.

People have come up with all sorts of interesting and unique cheesecake flavours, but today is a celebration of the classic blueberry variety.

The type of cheese used to make cheesecake has a huge impact on the flavour and texture of this delicious dessert. American cheesecakes are made with cream cheese, Italian cheesecakes are made with ricotta, and German and Polish cheesecakes are made with quark cheese, which is a type of curd cheese.

Blueberry cheesecake is one of the most popular cheesecake flavours. Enjoy a heavenly slice (or two) today to celebrate Blueberry Cheesecake Day!
