If the warm weather is any indication, summer is slowly but surely encroaching upon the metro.
The approach of summer, however, need not be a downer, even when most of us are stuck at home with no way to travel to destinations we dreamed about.
Instead, we can bring the essence of summer right where we are with the newest dessert creation from Chef Jessie – the Summer Berries Light Cheesecake!
Chef Jessie Sincioco began her illustrious career when she won the grand prize in The Great Maya Cookfest in 1983, followed by becoming the first Filipina pastry chef in 1990. She later on set up her own company, JCS Gastronomie Inc. to manage several upscale reataurants.
When His Holiness Pope Francis visited the country in 2015, Chef Jessie was handpicked to cook for him.
This summer, Chef Jessie once again flexed her baking muscles and crafted this beautiful cheesecake.
It’s an eight-inch dessert masterpiece made with alternating layers of strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and blackberry light cheesecake interspersed with slices of fresh berries nestled on a thin cornflake crust with crispy sponge discs and undercoated white chocolate.
It is a show-stopping dessert, fit for any season, but definitely a hit for the summer!
Truth be told: my fam and I polished off the entire cake in less than a day. We just couldn’t resist it!
