More Than Cake

It’s More Than Cake!

Natasha Pickowicz x Eli’s Cheesecake

In celebration of her new cookbook, More Than Cake, pastry chef extraordinaire and 3-time James Beard finalist Natasha Pickowicz teamed up with us to create her dream cheesecake. Known for creating delicious and surprising desserts, this layer cake/cheesecake combo combines Natasha’s famous olive oil cake made with Graza Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Eli’s Vanilla Bean Cheesecake, a wave of passion fruit curd, toasted coconut, and fluffy mascarpone mousse.
