The Eli’s Cheesecake Cookbook captures the glory of this globally celebrated interpretation of one of America’s favorite desserts. Eli’s cheesecake began more than 35 years ago, rising to prominence first as a featured item at one of Chicago’s most popular restaurantsEli’s The Place for Steak, a classic steakhouse and pillar of the city’s culinary community that was also a noted celebrity watering hole.
