This past week continues to be completely crazy! I flew to NY to meet up and cook with Bobby Flay at his cafe! Whattt?! I understand! My dessert was selected by Fage Total Greek Yogurt to become offered at their event. They transformed Bobby's cafe Mesa Grill right into a beautiful Pop-up Plain Kitchen restaurant. I'm so content that I was able to be apart of it! I can't express how blessed Personally i think. I fulfilled some fabulous food editors, Fage's PR group (Mullen!), and of course, Bobby. He was extremely sweet and complimented me on what delicious this cheesecake was. We also made a spice-crusted lamb, which was by far my favorite entree from the evening! BUT THE CHEESECAKE?! Can we simply discuss it? From the dense, simple, chocolate-wasted cheesecake that I want to live in for the others of my life. I'm SERIOUS. Oh and not to mention it includes a creamy, rich chocolate hazelnut butter (Nutella) ganache, toasted hazelnuts, and ocean salt. Please prepare yourself to drool. Coming up with this recipe was a significant process. I understood that I wanted to make use of greek yogurt, but also that I needed to make a dessert that may be presented inside a restaurant or made for a special occasion like a vacation party. It had to be decadent, wealthy, and basically all you could ever desire in the mouth area. Now here's the funny part: I'm not really a cheesecake female. I typically choose pie during the vacations, but I wanted to challenge myself into crafting something beautiful and unique. And in my opinion, there's really nothing better than chocolates and sea sodium. OBVIOUSLY. goodness. I must say i can't even cope with how incredible that is. The crust is made with hazelnuts and chocolates sandwich cookies as well as the filling up from cream cheese, greek yogurt, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, eggs, and sugar. The topping is an assortment of chocolate hazelnut butter, dark chocolate, and heavy cream, then it's finished with toasted hazelnuts along with a sprinkle of coarse sea salt. There are not enough happy adjectives to describe this cheesecake. You can find simply no phrases. But I think that when Bobby says it's great, well then… you know it's GOOD. Hope you guys had an excellent weekend! Enjoy!
