My oldest nephew, Neal, and I have a long-standing debate about which is the best cheesecake around. Steve roots for Cheesecake Factory, Neal for the local David Glass, and I remain faithful to my beloved Junior's Most Fabulous. This is the sort of debate that can only be resolved with a Challenge, and so on Saturday we gathered relatives, friends, and neighbors to sample and rate each cake. A homemade entry won the night. I'll admit that the David Glass was my favorite, but only with the caveat that the Junior's cake did make the longest journey and may not have been at its very best.
Should you have your own Cheesecake Challenge to wile away a winter night, I recommend serving Cafe Boheme. As my package store guy predicted, it was as big a hit as the cake.
What do you recommend for entertainment on these cold, late winter nights?
