Delicious...A Slice of New York Cheesecake with Candied Pecans by 

I know, I know, traditional New York Cheesecake is supposed to be plain and unadulterated without decoration, but I have added candied pecans… I can’t help it, I like things to be dressed up especially food

Part of the Delicious collection, a “Slice of New York Cheesecake with Candied Pecans” is painted in Watercolour on Arches paper…

Everybody has a certain image of New York Style Cheesecake. According to New Yorkers, only the great cheesecake makers are located in New York, and the great cheesecake connoisseurs are also in New York. In the 1900s, cheesecakes were very popular in New York. Every restaurant had their version. I believe the name “New York Cheesecake” came from the fact that New Yorkers referred to the cheesecakes made in New York as “New York Cheesecake.” New Yorkers say that cheesecake wasn’t really cheesecake until it was cheesecake in New York. what’

Cinnamon Bun

Scone with Berries and Cream

Lemon curd and Blueberry Tart

Strawberry Tart

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

  • Ever since the dawn of time, mankind has striven to create the perfect cheesecake. The earliest history of the art is lost, but we know that cheesecake was already a popular dish in ancient Greece. With the Roman conquest of Greece, the secret fell into Roman hands. The Roman name for this type of cake (derived from the Greek term,) became “placenta.” Placenta was more like a cheesecake, baked on a pastry base, or sometimes inside a pastry case. They were also called “libum” by the Romans, and were often used as an offering at their temples to their gods.

    I just love New York Cheese cake! YYUUMMM. Here is Australia we have a shop called The Cheese Cake Shop and these guys make the best “Baked American” cheese cake I’ve ever had the privilege to consume.
    Love this watercolour – very inspiring. When things slow down a little for me I’m going to break out the paints, paper and brushes!!

  • I love any cheesecake… that being said, I like them when they’re light and airy not heavy… as you can see this is one of the light creamy ones…
    I’m thrilled that you like the painting… welcome to my Red Bubble pages… I hope you continue to visit and comment and I can’t wait to see your paintings…

    This is a fantastic series,Janis, and this one is just incredible. Will you be putting recipes alongside in your book?

  • I am not quite sure what format the book would take… I have been thinking and thinking about it, but not had not come to any conclusions as yet. When I complete the series, and look at this as a whole may be at that point I will know what narratives to add to the painted works. I am so thrilled that you loved this series Susan… thank you so much for coming by to comment…
