How Cheesecake Was Born
Many people think cheesecake originated in New York. Although NY cheesecake has made a name for itself, the first “cheese cake” was probably created in Ancient Greece more than 4,000 years ago. It wasn’t as smooth and sweet as the cheesecake we recognize today, but the Greeks thought it was a good source of energy and served it in 776 B.C. to athletes at the first Olympic Games.
It was a New York dairy farmer, however, who gets the credit for creating the cream cheese we often use in cheesecakes. In 1872, William Lawrence was attempting to copy the popular French Neufchâtel cheese, but accidentally discovered the process for making cream cheese instead. In 1880, the Empire Cheese Company of New York began producing Philadelphia Cream Cheese for a New York distributor. A pasteurized version was later developed by James Kraft, who trademarked it in 1928 as Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Recognize it now?
Traditional New York-style cheesecake has a rich, smooth, creamy consistency and is made with pure cream cheese, cream, eggs, and sugar. It typically has no toppings. Other areas of the country are known for their cheesecake variations, such as Chicago and Philadelphia. And different versions of cheesecakes are popular throughout the world in places as diverse as Japan, Bulgaria and Brazil.
