Cherries are in season and that makes me very happy. My Love for cherries is unprecedented. It is my favourite fruit. It is not a common fruit in India and shows in markets for a brief period, but I ensure I enjoy it to the fullest before I have to wait for it the next year 🙂 To celebrate my love for these gorgeous looking cherries I made these Mascarpone Cherry Compote Cheesecake Verrines and Cherry Rosemary Focaccia Bread with Sea Salt, the recipe I will share super soon


This cherry cheesecake was a pure bliss and indulgence. It had a perfect harmony of flavors from sweet and sour cherries, Vanilla and Cookie base. It not only looked beautiful but tasted divine. The recipe is adapted from Life’s a feast. Its a simple treat and can be pulled in little time if unannounced guests surprise you.

This cherry saga doesn’t end here, I have even tried Cherry and Lychee Ice Cream and results were phenomenal. You may also like to try the very French Cherry Clafoutis which is a custard based dessert with fresh cherries.

Directions:
