The first recorded mention of cheesecake has it being served to athletes during the first Olympic Games, held in 776 B.C.E. The recipe consisted of “crushed cheese, wheat flour and one egg.” Recipes have evolved since then, but American cheesecake is different from Greek cheesecake, Italian cheesecake, German cheesecake, French cheesecake, etc. Different cultures use their own favorite fresh cheeses and flavorings, which have a very different impact on the personality of the cheesecake. And speaking of personality, cheesecake has become a work of art as well. Take a look at the cheesecakes from Elegant Cheesecakes, which don’t look at all like cakes (they’re a NIBBLE Top Pick of the Week). Take this quiz to learn some fun facts about this most delectable of desserts.
