How to Make the Best Classic New York Cheesecake by @CheesecakebyGuy? (Recipe)





 

When it comes to cheesecakes, Chef Gregory Guy has it all figured out—making one isn’t hard, and that’s the beauty of it!

After taking a culinary course at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu in France, Chef Guy journeyed into entrepreneurship and opened up his own store, Cheesecakes by Guy, at Eastwood Mall, Quezon City.

“It all started with one cheesecake,” says Chef. Now his store sells more than 20 variations of cheesecake; from Green Tea, Red Velvet, and Queso de Bola just to name a few.

Behind every fancy variation of this decadent dessert is the classic New York Cheesecake—and it’s Chef Guy’s bestseller.

Here’s how you can make it yourself ...

Crust
1 cup graham
70g melted butter
1 tablespoon sugar

Cheesecake Batter
500g cream cheese
200g sugar
2 eggs
40g sour cream
1 tsp real vanilla extract

 

Classic Cheesecake Cooking Instructions

Untitled

Mix all ingredients for the crust, pack down with a flat surface (like a small glass), and bake for 10 minutes. Let it cool down completely.

 

Untitled

Wrap the pan with 2 layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil.

 

Untitled

Mix room temperature cream cheese with sugar until well incorporated, and then add in eggs, sour cream and vanilla.

 

Untitled

Pour batter into the mold.

 

Untitled

Flatten the surface of the batter by gently lifting the mold and releasing it onto a flat surface—this also helps eliminate any air bubbles in the batter.

 

Untitled

Place mold into a larger pan and fill halfway with boiling water. Bake at 180C for 1.5 hours, or until the center is fully set and jiggles like stiff gelatin.

 

Untitled

Let cool completely for 1 to 1.5 hours and refrigerate for another 5-6 hours. To unmold, you heat up the bottom and sides of the pan with a torch or a small flame over the stove.

 

Untitled

Carefully remove the cheesecake from the mold.

 

Untitled

Your cheesecake is ready to serve!

Chef Guy’s philosophy in the kitchen is to “perfect the simplest things”—like this cheesecake, for example.

Once you get the hang of making the classic, you can try out other variations through very simple tweaks.

 

To make a Sous Vide Cheesecake Base

Untitled
Cook New York Style Cheesecake batter Sous Vide style at 70C for 1.5 hours and let it cool completely.

The Sous Vide Cheesecake is slightly runnier than what we have in the cake form, but is fully cooked—it makes for a good base for desserts like the Cheesecake Soufflé or Chocolate Glazed Creampuffs with Cheesecake Mousse.

 

Untitled

Making the Cheesecake Soufflé
Sous Vide Cheesecake Base
2 Eggs
Confectionary Sugar
Castor Sugar
Butter

 

Untitled

Whip 2 egg whites until they bubble.

 

Untitled

Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and continue to whip until the meringue has medium peaks.

 

Untitled

Butter Ramekins with a brush.

 

Untitled

Coat the prepared Ramekins well with sugar to prevent the soufflé from overcooking.

 

Untitled

Carefully mix 1/3 of meringue into 60g of Sous Vide cheesecake batter until well incorporated. Gently fold in all the rest of the meringue into mix.

 

Untitled

Transfer immediately into prepared ramekins and bake at 180C for 18 minutes or until Soufflé has risen and top is slightly browned.

 

Untitled

Voilà!

 

Untitled

Making the Chocolate Glazed Creampuffs

Simply mix 200g of Cheesecake Sous Vide with 50g of Whipped Cream.


Untitled

Cut a small hole into the creampuff and use a piper to inject the Cheesecake Mousse.

 

Untitled

Dip your treat into your chocolate of choice!

Thank you, Chef Gregory Guy, for showing us how to creatively “perfect” the simplest, yet most memorable cheesecake classic!
