Dahlia Matriarchal Cheesecake
Dahlia Man entrusted me with the recipe for the traditional German cheesecake of his grandmother, his mother, and his wife. He tells me he wasn't disappointed by my attempt at its recreation today. Instead of cream cheese, this cheesecake is made with cottage cheese and other secret ingredients. It is deliciously unlike anything else I have ever tasted. Dahlia Man took one look at the cheesecake and pronounced that the dinner table tonight would be surrounded by the spirits of his maternal ancestors.
