Banana Split Cheesecake

Here is another dessert offering the will be making an appearance on the upcoming menu starting May 3rd. This idea started with the thoughts of a shared dessert and what could be more appropriate than a banana split. Our pastry chef made the comment that a cheesecake is always a big seller on the menu and we should consider having one. After going back and forth on different flavors and how to differentiate ourselves with a cheesecake; we decided on a banana split cheesecake. Our pastry chef made this beautiful Neapolitan cheesecake with layers of strawberry, banana, and chocolate. The sauces drizzled on the plate are mango, chocolate, and berry. Sliced bananas are placed on the plate with a coating of caramel sauce. A pile of candied walnuts were added for texture and it was only right to top the cheesecake with whipped cream and a cherry. This is definitely a beautiful dessert that will make people say "WOW" when it arrives at the end of their meal.
