Over the years cheesecakes have featured in much of our home cooking - from oven-baked to fridge, as well as the Israeli-type cheesecake. The latter version’s uniqueness is the Israeli white cheese. It’s similar to German quark; a fresh, creamy-style cheese common in the cuisines of German-speaking countries.
