“I grew up in Brooklyn and we always went to Junior’s for cheesecake. It’s one of my favorite things to eat, but there’s a lot of mediocre cheesecake being served across the country. We wanted to come up with a version that was inventive and more elegant. At MilkWood, we’re always messing around with spice—I’m a chili-head, so the spicier the better. For this cheesecake, we used a Japanese chili spice blend called togarashi to offset the tartness of the goat cheese in the recipe. Togarashi is not melt-your-face-off spicy, but it’s just spicy enough to tickle the back of your throat. In Japanese food, it’s like adding salt and pepper.”
