This book details the storied history of one of the nation’s most famous desserts, all the way from Eli Schulman’s first cheesecake to President Obama’s 50th birthday cake to the creation of four towering, 2,000 lb. cheesecakes served at inaugural festivities in Washington, DC. The second edition of the Eli's Cheesecake Cookbook has been fully expanded and updated in honor of the 40th anniversary of Eli's Cheesecake. In addition to the classics featured in the first edition, the new edition features even more cheesecake recipes, including Basque, Cherry Vanilla, Hawaiian, Carrot Cake Cheesecake, and Holiday Cheesecake Dippers―one of Oprah's Favorite Things. You'll also find many more signature dishes from Eli’s The Place for Steak, including Chicken Vesuvio, Pepper Steak, Corned Beef Hash, Potato Pancakes, and French Onion Soup, and an all-new chapter showcasing Eli's bakers from around the world sharing their favorite family recipes. --Amazon.com
