WHAT IS CHICAGO-STYLE CHEESECAKE
IN 1980, Restaurateur Eli Schulman declared cheesecake as the signature dessert for his legendary Chicago steakhouse, Eli’s The Place For Steak. By breaking all the rules of traditional cheesecake baking (fast bake, high heat, no water bath) he created “Chicago Style” cheesecake: richer and creamier than its NY counterpart, baked on an all-butter shortbread cookie crust. Still family-owned, Eli’s hand makes and decorates all of its cheesecakes and desserts at Eli’s Cheesecake World on Chicago’s northwest side.
