Cheesecake is an institution in itself. The treat’s origins go back to Antiquity, but Americans have truly made it their own by adding a variety of flavors. Blueberry Cheesecake Day is here to commemorate the most common topping which combines the ancient tradition of creamy goodness with the modern love of healthy natural berries.
Cheesecake is as widespread as it is versatile. The recipes and ingredients vary from region to region. Europeans use ricotta or curd cheese which makes the final product spongy and a little harder, while in America cream cheese keeps the dessert full-bodied and light at the same time. Blueberries, on the other hand, are a steeple of sweet Americana, playing major roles in a variety of muffins, tarts, and pies.
It is only natural to combine these two delectable traditions in a signature treat. Blueberry Cheesecake Day celebrates this happy encounter and inspires even more culinary exploration and enjoyment!
