    I have been mandated to come up with the "best cheesecake in the world" in a relatively short time, any extraordinary recipes you would share would be appreciated. In all actuality, I have to come up with to different ones; one, along the lines of a "New York-Style cheesecake." Secondly, a "boutique cheesecake" of varied flavor. We will have to present our goods at a taste panel scheduled within two weeks.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    here is the passion cheesecake..

    1 1/2 # cream cheese
    1 1/2 C sugar
    2 T cornstarch or 1/4 C A.P. flour
    4 eggs
    3/4 C sour cream
    1 C passion puree
    2 t salt
    beat cheese & sugar..scrape down sides and add remaining ingredients untill each is well blendid.

    ..if you dont find the passion intense enough..start with 2 cups and reduce to 1 cup..

    Do you need to use the milk chocolate only for cheesecake?

    If you like, I have a few cheesecake recipes you can have, just pm me if you want them. Like honeycomb cheesecake, dark chocolate marble and rum cheesecake, and saffron, cointreau and honey cheesecake.

    These are not baked but chilled (no gelatine either, very easy).

    Yes! I'd love to get your recipes for various cheesecakes. I work with a Master Pastry Chef (Rudi Weider of Marriott Hotels) and his mandate was for our pastry team (9 associates) to come up with various cakes cheesecake recipes. You can email me directly at [email protected]m. By the way, my brother has a vacation home in Ackland NZ!

    Take care, and thank you.
