为了将我们的老朋友——蓝莓芝士蛋糕曲奇带回来,不如我们来了解点芝士蛋糕的知识如何?

But first, WHY CHEESECAKE and WHY NOW? 

Actually, neither of those questions. How about we just learn a little more about cheesecake?

你知道奶酪蛋糕是古希腊人发明的吗?有个网站说,我们之所以能确定这一点,是因为在一次挖掘中发现了古老的奶酪蛋糕模具,这让我觉得他们也发明了那些留下“这是奶酪蛋糕”印记的奶酪蛋糕模具。

Did you know that cheesecake was invented by the ancient Greeks? Not even the current Greeks, the old timey ones. 

 

One internet website says that we know this for sure because old cheesecake molds were found during an excavation, which makes me think they also invented those cheesecake molds that leave an imprint saying THIS IS CHEESECAKE!!! 
古希腊人的食谱很简单,不像我强迫阿姨做芝士蛋糕曲奇的95个步骤那么复杂。仅仅是新鲜的芝士奶酪,撒上一点老面粉,再点缀以蜂蜜。αυτό είναι όλο!

The ancient Greeks kept their recipe simple, unlike the 95 steps I have forced upon ayi for our cheesecake cookie, and just used fresh cheese patties, a little sprinkle of flour, and a drizzle of honey. αυτό είναι όλο!

 

当罗马人征服希腊的时候,他们加入了鸡蛋和奶酪碎来调味。就像罗马建立了帝国,奶酪蛋糕也开始了它自己的本土化,欧洲的每个地方都在他们的奶酪蛋糕中添加了自己的小特色。很明显,亨利八世的厨师对奶酪蛋糕的贡献是将大块奶酪浸泡在牛奶中3小时,就像亨利八世一样。

When the Romans conquered Greece, which honestly the Greeks still won’t shut up about, they spiced things up a bit by adding in eggs and crushed cheese. And when the Roman Empire did that whole empire thing, the glory of cheesecake expanded as well, with each part of Europe adding their own little flair to this aged treat. 

 

 

DON'T BELIEVE ME?! Well here's a fact: apparently King Henry VIII's chef's contribution to the cheesecake canon was to use chunks of  cheese that had been soaked in milk for three hours (which is just, like, sooo Henry VIII, right?).

 

 

实话说,美国对芝士蛋糕丰富历史的最大贡献是1.使用奶油芝士。2.一家专营芝士蛋糕的连锁商场,又名芝士蛋糕工厂,基本上是你能在任何东西上找到最美国化本土化的东西。

Unsurprisingly, the United States’ greatest gifts to the rich cultural history of cheesecake was 1. using cream cheese, and 2. a mall chain of restaurants devoted to cheesecake, aka The Cheesecake Factory, which is basically the most American spin you can put on anything.

好了,我的天,别说奶酪蛋糕了!!与其用更多的奶酪蛋糕知识塞满你的脑袋,不如用我们的蓝莓奶酪蛋糕曲奇塞满你的嘴巴吧!

Ok omg ENOUGH already of all of this cheesecake talk!!! Instead of stuffing your heads with more cheesecake knowledge, how about you stuff that gorgeous mouth of yours with our (historically significant?) Blueberry Cheesecake cookie!
