What’s a savory cheesecake?

Using a base of cream cheese—just like dessert cheesecake—it’s an unsweetened cheesecake that combines savory ingredients: herbs, vegetables, seafood, and/or other cheeses.

A savory cheesecake:

  • Can be a spread for party bread and crackers.
  • Can be a first course or cheese course consisting of a slice of cheesecake eaten with a fork. (We serve ours on a plate with a mesclun salad and vinaigrette.)
  • Can be large cheesecakes or individual cheesecakes.
  • Can combine just about any flavor, from shrimp to jalapeño to Roquefort.
  • Are great for special occasions.
  • Are always a big hit, because few people have ever had one.
