Japanese Mango and Rare Cheese Cake

MANGO-CHEESE-1

The Japanese make a distinction between two kinds of cheese cakes:
-Just “cheese cake” means it has been baked
-“Rare Cheese cake” means that the cake is not cooked.

This particular recipe is dedicated to Elin and her love for mangoes!

  1. Hi Sizuoka san,

    Thank you for your comment. I was so surprised that the comment of someone from foodbuzz was written in Japanese. Your Japanese is amazing, and English is beautiful.

    I would like to try to write my blog in English… Though I have never been to Shizuoka, there seems so nice place with fresh delicious foods!

    1. Dear Friend!
      Greetings!
      I’ve lived in Jpaan for 33 years, so I suppose my Japanese should be the same standards as of Japanese people aged 33 years!LOL
      As for the English, I spent my college years in England!
      Shizuoka is great place I can assure you!
      Best regards,
