The cheesecake was born in Europe, specifically the first traces of this dessert date back to Ancient Greece. Little is known about how cheesecake was passed down from the ancient to the modern world.

The modern version of the cheesecake, with a crunchy base and cream cheese, was born in Philadelphia in 1872 by the dairy producer James L. Kraft who, trying to reproduce the famous French cheese Neufchatel, obtained an equally tasty cream cheese, which became then famous all over the world with the name of Philadelphia.

Today the cheesecake is spread all over the world, in many variations:cooked and not, sweet and savoury, with and without glazing.

The famous New York cheesecake, for example, is baked in the oven and involves the use of sugar, eggs and milk cream for the filling.
