happy Thai new year...

with white chocolate - rhubarb cheesecakes...



I have to say that I'm not a big fan of the cheesecake. However, I wanted to do the cheesecake for a new dessert at the restaurant I work for. I made three different recipes and three different techniques. Although all cheesecakes tasted fine and my co-workers liked them, they didn't get me excited enough to continue to put on the menu though.
