Chocolate Mint Meringue Cheesecake
Cheesecake and Brief History
Cheesecake for desert is sinfully delightful. Chocolate Mint Meringue Cheesecake is one of the richest tasting desserts.
Historians believe that cheesecake originated in ancient Greece and was served to the athletes during the first Olympic Games held in 776 B.C. Marcus Porcius Cato's De re Rustica, a Roman politician around 200 B.C., came up with a cheesecake similar to how we know it today.
It wasn't until 1872 that cream cheese was invented by American dairymen, William Lawrence of Chester, N.Y., who accidentally developed a method of producing cream cheese while trying to reproduce a French cheese called Neufchatel.
Cheesecake has become so popular that there are restaurants that specialize in this dessert. The first Cheesecake Factory restaurant opened in Beverly Hills, California, in 1978.
