Cheesecake is one of the kitchen’s deceptively simple fine arts. Balance of cheese flavor with recognizable sweetness, presentation of a flawless cake without cracks, crust to cheese ratio, and pairing with garnishes or topping.

I choose a high quality goat cherve from a local creamery with an unexpected tang to a recognizable favorite dessert. Additional technology from a whipping siphon aerates the cheesecake to the perfect medium airiness to the final dessert.

Sometimes you don’t need a lot of “cooking”…

This plate looks and tastes like pure summer! Tomatoes from a local farm called Laughing Dog. Goat’s Milk Feta from Blue Heron Creamery — where the goats are fed a local beer daily. Boxwood basil (and flowers) came from my garden. Texas olive oil, black falk salt, and a touch of balsamic complete the dish. Go find some GREAT local ingredients and try this dish!

Using local ingredients reminds me of my dear friend Tracy Kontos. Chef Kontos is about to host her first pop up dinner. Too bad it’s sold out, you should have bought a ticket.
