Pierre Herme’s Cheesecake, Blueberryfied
In the past year, I decided to challenge myself in baking. Put aside all fear of failure. Step out of the basics. Venture into the world of gourmet desserts. Because that’s what “growing” and “learning” is supposed to be. Doing what you’ve never done before. Making most out of the money spent on buying the ingredients. Why make bread with flour when you can come up with a product that’s worth more with the same ingredients? Why spend the same amount time making everyday desserts when you can make expensive, exquisite ones? And need I remind myself of the beauty of all things gourmet? Those simple ingredients, through my hands and equipment, transform, from a blank canvas into a valuable piece of art. This is the beauty of baking. This is why I fell heads over heels in love with baking. Edible art.
This cheesecake is easily a good example. Simple yet beautiful.
Its rich, heavy, with the just right amount of sweetness and a hint of sourness. Just small slice is adequate to satisfy a cheesecake craving.
Make it yourself for the full experience. I assure you– its good.
