July 30 is National Cheesecake Day in America, but here in South Korea, it seems that some Koreans know about it, too. No wonder we saw different kinds of cheesecake on sale when we went to Homeplus yesterday.
How is Cheesecake Day celebrated? Simple! ^^ Just buy your favorite cheesecake from your favorite bakery and enjoy the cake with your family or friends. In the US and in some stores and bakeries in SK, you can buy cheesecake at a discounted price.
Some people prefer to bake their own cheesecake to make the celebration “more special”.
I have wanted to try this no-bake cheesecake recipe which I have found on Joyofbaking.com, but I can’t find graham crackers for making the crumb crust. (Why are graham crackers hard to find in Korea?) Perhaps one of these days, my husband and I can go to Costco. I’m sure I’m going to find graham crackers there.
My husband and I are cheesecake lovers. Our favorite cheesecake in Korea is the one from Ashley. In fact, it has been our tradition to have that cake on our anniversary and on Valentine’s Day or White Day.
Cheesecake can be enjoyed any day of the year, but I’m glad there is Cheesecake Day. At least I have another reason to ask my husband to buy me one. ㅋㅋㅋ ^^v
