Celebrate National Cheesecake Day with a sweet dessert

Cheesecake lovers now have a sweet summer holiday — National Cheesecake Day, being observed on Wednesday.

In celebration of the food holiday, whip up a dessert featuring Creole cream cheese, a treat enjoyed in Louisiana since the 1800s.

Restaurant R’evolution Executive Pastry Chef Erin Swanson incorporates Creole cream cheese in a dessert she calls Creole Cream Cheese Mousse With Strawberry Gelee. She garnishes it with lemon curd and blueberry sauce.

The New Orleans restaurant is located at 777 Bienville St.
