The Turgeon Bros. Cheesecake by Mary Kunz Goldman

Buffalo, NY, US


The Turgeon Brothers restaurants were famous in Buffalo, N.Y., in the 1970s. Among them were the Boardwalk Cafe, the Crouching Lion, the Sign of the Steer and the famous Roycroft Inn, restored now and revered nationwide as home of the Arts and Crafts movement. Buffalonians loved the restaurants for their magnificent Sunday brunch. This is the recipe for the great Turgeon Brothers cheesecake, passed down to me by the daughter-in-law of the chef who used to prepare it.
