RIPE FOR SE­DUC­TION

THIS TEXTURAL TREAT TOPS A CRUNCHY BASE WITH A SILKY FILL­ING

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - FOOD - WORDS: A LAST AIR MCLEOD PHOTO AND STYLING: MI­RANDA PORTER

This block­buster dessert is a bit naughty. I’m al­ways se­duced by a well-made cheese­cake rather than a de­con­structed, fer­mented flight of fancy fes­tooned with flow­ers and su­per­flu­ous soil. All suc­cess­ful desserts play on the ap­peal of con­trast­ing tex­tures. The crunchy base and con­trast­ing fill­ing (thank you, pumpkin) pro­vide a dou­ble bonus — both a fail­safe cheese­cake and choco­late recipe for your reper­toire.
