Passionfruit Tofu Cheesecake

Passionfruit Tofu Cheesecake

What better way to enjoy an Australian summer than with a passionfruit tofu cheesecake?

It’s by award-winning chef Teage Ezard and designed specially to be served with Elato Cold Brew Decaf Cafe Latte Ice-Cream.

“This dish has distinctive flavours that marry well and an incredible creamy texture,” Teage says.

“The sharpness and tart characteristics of the passionfruit is offset with the slight bitterness and salt flavour you get from coffee. 

“The crunch and crumble provide an exciting mouth-feel of different flavours and wonderful textures.”
