Basque Cheesecake Recipe

Basque Cheesecake Recipe

Incredibly tender, melt-in-your-mouth San Sebastian cheesecake (aka “Basque cheesecake”) was invented in Spain not so long ago, in the 1990s. It was created by chef Santiago Rivera from the La Vina restaurant in San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain.

Initially, chef wanted to improve the classical dessert, making it more light, that's how San Sebastian cheesecake lost it's cookie crust and now consists entirely of delicate cheese cream.
