Went to Intermezzo at the Tyneside Cinema for lunch today and had one of those revelatory cheesecake experiences. Normally I'm strictly a Pizza Express cheesecake girl, but this was something equally fine. Italian cheesecake, it called itself - a thin base, cakey in texture, with almonds sprinkled on top. I fell in love.

I've looked for a recipe for Italian cheesecake, and there seem to be loads, but none quite corresponding to mine. Having looked at about.com's Italian food section, mine may in fact be Torte della Nonne. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.

If you look up cheesecake on google images, there's some interesting interpretations...
