Basque Burnt Cheesecake Typically, something burnt would taste bitter. Not this. In fact, it tastes better with the caramelized, almost burnt top. Inspired by a pastry Miko Aspiras and Kristine Lotilla came across during their trip to San Sebastian, Spain, the Basque Burnt Cheesecake at Le Petit Souffle is light and custardy in texture, very different from the many similar cakes available commercially. It is baked at a higher temperature and at a shorter time, achieving that rich, egg tarty, one-slice-is-notenough finish. The Workshop by Le Petit Soufflé is located at the second floor, Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall, Ortigas, Mandaluyong.
