“I would do everything under the sun to keep my mom’s business alive — except for killing and drugs and illicit stuff,” Jean-Bart says.
The cheesecakes are light and not overly sweet. Jean-Bart’s mom was diabetic, so their recipes reduced the sugar. In fact, the ingredient list is quite small, with no fillers, gelatins or preservatives.
Did you know? Jean-Bart collected water, face masks and hand sanitizer to give to demonstrators at protests against police violence.
“It’s a basic recipe, but it’s all in the way we process,” Jean-Bart says. “It’s the minutes spent mixing. Every ingredient has an order. It’s a top secret one.”
Jean-Bart recommends the classic strawberry cheesecake, the red velvet, banana pudding or cookies and cream. For an indulgent treat, try the chocolate turtle made with Oreo crust, black forest cheesecake, caramel sauce, chocolate ganache and pecans. Or try the BAE with a graham cracker crust and classic cheesecake filled with rich vanilla pudding. It’s drizzled with caramel sauce and topped with candied pecans made from scratch.
