      Thanks Lisa, maybe I should put my thinking cap on and design an orange striped cheesecake and call it a Tiger cheesecake! I noticed you have a lot of macaron recipes, I’ve tried to make purely savoury ones: http://www.fdathome.co.uk/savoury-macarons/ let me know what you think and any tips you may have to perfect them.

      Dave.

  2. what a gorgeous presentation! I’m so curious as to what this would taste like, how fun.

    • Dave Crichton

      It tastes along the lines of sweetened marscapone. Cheesy but definitely a dessert. It’s dead simple to make and a real centre piece.

  3. This sounds amazing! I love blue cheese, cheesecake and pears…this is a wonderful flavor combination. I would love to try it!

      Hi Julie, apologies for delaying in replying I’ve been in Cuba and internet is not their best quality. The cheesecake is really simple and I loved it. As long as you serve it to open minded people it’ll go down a storm. Let me know how you get on!

      Dave
