WORLD OF FLAVORS
Don't judge a cheesecake by its appearance.
This cheesecake is the Mr. Hyde version of the more refined classic New York-style.
A recipe that originated from the Basque Country, an autonomous region in northern Spain with celebrated cuisines and a strong cultural tradition.
This is the cheesecake that wants to get cracked and burnt. Yes, this is for real! It is intentionally baked at a very high temperature to get that rustic burnt outside and a creamy inside.
The bitterness of the burnt outside, together with the sweet and creamy inside complement each other. The same reason why creme brulee tastes yummy.
