Preparation Time 45 minutes
Cooking Time 35 minutes
Makes 12


150g gingernut biscuits, halved
75g unsalted butter, melted
430ml (1 3/4 cups) pouring cream
3 thin slices peeled ginger
3 x 5g leaves titanium-strength gelatine (see Notes)
250g light cream cheese, softened
280g (1 cup) Greek-style yoghurt
110g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
200g rose-flavoured Turkish delight, finely chopped (see Notes)
Roasted rhubarb
1 bunch rhubarb, trimmed, thinly sliced on the diagonal
165g (3/4 cup) caster sugar
1 orange, juiced


Grease moulds. To make biscuit layer, process biscuits in a food processor to fine crumbs. Add butter and process until combined. Divide biscuit mixture among moulds (about 1 tbs each). Using the base of another mould, press down firmly to compact. Refrigerate until needed.

To make cheesecake layer, place 180ml (3/4 cup) cream and ginger in a small saucepan and bring almost to the boil over low heat. Meanwhile, soak gelatine in a bowl of cold water for 3 minutes to soften, then squeeze out excess water. Discard ginger from cream mixture, then stir in gelatine until dissolved. Cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, yoghurt and sugar on low speed until smooth, then beat in gelatine mixture until combined, scraping down the side of the bowl occasionally. In a clean bowl, whisk remaining 250ml (1 cup) cream to soft peaks, then fold into cream cheese mixture until just combined. Gently fold in half the Turkish delight. Divide mixture among the moulds, then refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.

Preheat panggangan to 180C. To make rhubarb, toss rhubarb with sugar in a small ovenproof dish, then drizzle over orange juice. Cover dish with foil, then bake for 30 minutes or until rhubarb is soft but still holds its shape. Cool, then refrigerate until needed.

To serve, briefly dip moulds in a bowl of hot water, then run a knife around the inside of each mould to release cakes. Carefully invert onto plates or into cups. Top with remaining Turkish delight. Serve with rhubarb and syrup.


* Titanium-strength gelatine leaves are from delis. If you prefer a slightly softer set for the banana cheesecake, omit the gelatine.

* Turkish delight is from delis. We used pariya rose raahat. Its sticky consistency makes Turkish delight difficult to chop finely. to make it easier, dust a small area of a work surface with 2 tbs cornflour. Working with one piece of turkish delight at a time, cut into 4mm-thick slices. Turn slices to coat in cornflour, then cut slices into 4mm dice and lightly dust again. Repeat with remaining turkish delight, adding more cornflour as needed.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
