This was my 2nd attempt to make a real NY style cheesecake with Slovak ingredients. Better, better, much better... even though my mom says she liked the 1st one more:) Some recipes were using 'tvaroh' - Slovak cottage cheese as a substitute for cream cheese. That created a typical cottage cheese taste completely different from a real cheesecake taste. It wasn't bad just more 'domestic' than exotic. I switched to a Slovak cream cheese that narrowed the taste to the NY style. The only think that made me unhappy was the sudden growth and drop of the cake while baking. It made this ugly edge but I believe the 3rd try will be 100% success. I will update you on the progress later:)
