Where Did Cheesecake Come From?

Interestingly enough, cheesecake originated in ancient Greece around 5th century BCE. Back then, ancient Greeks would pound smooth a patty of fresh cheese with flour and honey. It reemerged in tart form with a pastry base in Europe in the late medieval ages. There were a couple of recipes in the first English cookbook around 1390. It eventually made its way to the American Colonies where it transformed into the cheesecake we enjoy today.

Even though cheesecake started out as basically cheese with flour and honey, there are now many different cheesecake recipes to meet everyone's tastes. Cheesecake is a delicious dessert that is easy to make and compliments any meal.
