Recipe: Strawberry Ricotta Cheesecake

It’s strawberry season, and this season is a particularly good one so I thought it was about time I shared this delectable recipe.  I created this recipe a number of years ago and it is still one of my favourite desserts. It is always a big hit in my cooking classes, and my students are amazed that not only is it gluten free but low fat!   This light and luscious cheesecake is not too sweet, and because it doesn’t have a biscuit base like many cheesecakes it is lesser in calories. You could use low-fat ricotta for an even lower fat option, and for a gluten free dessert make sure you use gluten-free cornflour.  If you’re serving a wine with it, a Late Harvest Riesling is a good match. Enjoy!
