Walnut and maple syrup cheesecake.

Ready, steady, go!

New month, new post; my new bullet journal routine helps me a lot keeping track of all my posts on the blog/ socials and this routine says it’s time for a new post here.

Luckly I have a brand new recipe to post, from a small book I bought on Amazon, first hand but very cheap.

I discovered later it is the translation of a book about cheesecake written by an American chef called George Geary.

I don’t know if the translation is very close or not as I have never seen the American book but Italian edition is packed with very nice recipes and I am pretty sure I will try more of them in the future!

This is the book

I am keeping track, on the bullet jourlan, of how many cookbooks I buy.

I will have a good overview at the end of the year but I think I should be already ashamed…

Too many, too many!

Let’s jump to the recipe, I have to collect Lorenzo from school soon! 🙂
