Cheesecake FAQs.

What is a Basque cheesecake?

The name “Basque” comes from the Basque country in Spain. It’s where the famous Basque cheesecake (or “tarta de queso”) has been invented. As opposed to a traditional New York cheesecake, the Basque cheesecake doesn’t have a crust. It is also baked at high temperature giving it a beautiful caramelised exterior and a delicious creamy centre.
