If you know nothing else about me, you know one thing: I LOVE JAPAN. I am pretty much Jamaicanese. So with this in mind I have always tried to incorporate Japanese or Japanese inspired dishes in my diet. I constantly browse through Japanese food blogs, youtube channels, facebook and instagram pages you know..the works. This brought me to a recipe for a fluffy Japanese Cheesecake. After I saw how light and airy it was, how it sprung back after the slightest touch, how smoothly the knife passed though…. are you getting the picture? I needed to find it. I needed to buy it. I needed to eat it. I went out on my cheesecake search and well, damn, it quickly came to a close (as expected).
Generally speaking, Jamaican restaurants, cafes and pastry shops have a limited international dessert offering (don’t worry that I am planning on changing that soon) so I was not too surprised that I couldn’t find it. This gives me the perfect opportunity to test out my not so chef like skills…this calls for #cookingwithmo
