My mother operates a Cheesecake Laboratory in a (not-so) secret location somewhere in the MidWest. She has been extracting, concocting, and inventing a method of cheesecake creation that fascinates the outside observer. Usually she operates in total non-disclosure, revealing her methods only after the item is fully consumed. She recently has used flavor combinations from products that are sold on the JLHUFFORD website. Spiced chai from BIG TRAIN was a flavor she hadn’t considered before. She used this idea in a cheesecake for a private catering job. The addition of approximately 1/8 cup of BIG TRAIN spiced chai gave the dessert a flavor twist that made the use of a fruit sauce topping unnecessary.
