Creole Cream Cheese Cheesecake @ Cafe Adelaide
The idea to make a cheesecake out of Creole cream cheese welled up at Commander’s Palace, at around the time Emeril was on the way out and Jamie Shannon was coming in. The extra tang of the Creole cream cheese was just right, and many other restaurants have borrowed the idea. The best I’ve had lately is at Commander’s junior restaurant, Cafe Adelaide. It also turns up in Emeril’s and the Brennans’ restaurants pretty often.
