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 ...
