White Chocolate Cheesecake Day is a day dedicated to celebrating this delightful combination and all of its glory. So grab a plate, get some cheesecake, and dig in as we learn about the history of this amazing dessert.
History of White Chocolate Cheesecake Day
Throughout history, it is believed that the ancient Aztec and Mayan people consumed chocolate in religious rituals, or rather, specifically the cocoa bean. Once Europeans became introduced to chocolate, many early Europeans ate chocolate as a beverage and soon down the line of history, people started experimenting with chocolate.
Soon after, the combination of chocolate cake arose when throughout the 19th century, people started using chocolate in baked goods which promoted the marketing value of chocolate in desserts.
White chocolate, on the other hand, appeared much later, where the Nestle company began making white chocolate in the 1930s in Europe, resting at the heart of its creation alongside Kuno Baedeker, who developed white chocolate in 1945 in North America.
Cheesecake, on the other hand, has a more direct line of history that can be traced down. During the 1930s, the famous New York style cheesecake began with the restaurant Lindy’s, the first restaurant to ever create the delicious combination of cream cheese and cake into one delicate treat.
While the restaurant sadly closed its doors in the 1960s, the owner of the restaurant released their recipe out to the public through the magazine Duncan Hines in the 1930s, which critically acclaimed high-quality restaurants for their food innovations.
Today, there are many different kinds of cheesecakes out there that can be made, and white chocolate cheesecake is just one of the tasty creations that will make your mouth water for more.
