What is a topic you could talk about for hours?
Because you have a lot of knowledge in the area, you are really passionate about it, you like to hear other people's opinions...
For me, it's baking!
I just spend an hour with my mum discussing cheesecakes.
And looking at different recipes for different types.
We even watched a short youtube video of someone comparing the famous NY cheesecake to our traditional German cheesecakes.
There's a very important difference between the two.
The main ingredient for a NY cheesecake is ... cream cheese (duh!)
But the main ingredient for a German cheesecake is ... quark.
If you're now wondering ... WTF is quark... here's the official Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quark_(dairy_product)
As soon as you leave Europe, it becomes rare to see quark in supermarkets, unfortunately.
And it's actually one thing I'm missing.
Quark is much lighter than cream cheese, which makes our cheesecake less heavy.... so you can eat more of it!
But this weekend, I'm going to try out another type of cheesecake for the first time ... the famous, jiggly Japanese cheesecake.
And I'm already excited!
Any other types of cheesecake I should know about? Tell me!
