Local Food: Have you wondered what makes a cheesecake so special? It has to be the combinations of silkiness and crunch, sweet and tart. Steven combines the best mascarpone from VT Butter and Cheese with Champlain Valley Creamery cream cheese for a superior texture that puts the essence of cheese upfront. For a crust with crunch, he turns to maple and vanilla cookies from Vermont Cookie Buttons. To give the rich cheeses a lighter air, the tartness of the mixed berries accentuates the crisp chill - retained at your table by serving the cheese cake in individual glass jars.
