RECIPE: TKG's Chocolate Cheesecake

I've been meaning to make cheesecake a few weeks back but daughter had a sudden fascination with cream cheese and crackers so we always ran out of cream cheese. Luckily, I had this crazy moment in the kitchen. I'm now sharing my easy to make chocolate cheesecake recipe.



So here's my cheesecake inspiration recipe that I found in the pantry- Chips Ahoy, Milka Chocolate Bar, Eden Cheese, and Nestle Cream.


Because I don't have cream cheese in the pantry, I made my own cream cheese using Eden Melt Sarap and Nestle All Purpose Cream. Super easy!



Here's my homemade cream cheese:

Cut the cheese into tiny pieces (the whole box). Then using a non-stick pan (low-heat), add the cream and the cheese. Stir continuously to avoid burning the cheese, don't let it boil also. That simple, you now have your cream cheese!

I then added the broken chocolate bar to the cream cheese, thus turning it into a chocolate-y goodness. Set aside until cool then place in the fridge so that it will harden a bit.

N.B.

You have the option to add sugar to the mixture and reduce cheese amount by half. I used the whole 165g of cheese and its a bit "salty."

For the cheesecake crust:

Crushed the chips ahoy and add some softened butter/margarine and about 2 tbsp of sugar. I used Dari Creme. Form the sticky crumbs evenly into pan or wherever you want to place your cheesecake. I used Lock&Lock. Add the cheesecake mixture on top of the crumbs, cover the container and place it in the freezer for about 2 hours (depends on how cold the temperature is).

Slice a portion and topped it with anything. Daughter requested Oreo so we topped it with Oreo. Bon appetite from The Kitchen Goddess!

  1. Substuting Eden Melt Sarap and Nestle All Purpose Cream for cream cheese is a good call.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
