Origin - Japan
Japanese Souffle Cheesecake is a Japanese twist on a Western dessert. This cheesecake is not your ordinary rich and creamy cheesecake. Japanese cheesecakes have a fluffier and moist sponge-like texture with a subtle sweetness thanks to the unique technique of whisking the egg whites and yolk separately before mixing them with other ingredients. [ History ]
Cheesecake, in general, originated 4,000 years ago in Greece which was considered to be a good source of energy. There is even evidence that cheesecakes were served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 B.C. Despite the long history of the original cheesecake, the Japanese cheesecake, however, has a relatively short history of 40 years. In 1970, Rikuro Ojisan in Osaka, Japan was the first specialty chain to serve the airy and fluffy Japanese cheesecake.
[ How to Eat ]You can enjoy Japanese Cheesecake cold from the fridge or eaten hot, fresh from the oven, so they literally melt in your mouth.
