not counting gelato, of course, is New York style cheesecake ! Cheesecake made with Philadelphia cream cheese Not ricotta. Philadelphia cream cheese.
It is on the menu at all the eating establishments: ristorante, osterie, trattorie, and Philadelphia cream cheese is readily available in all food stores.
I would imagine this is how it felt in the U.K. when tea took over.
It just feels so wrong.
But it tastes very good.
