Cheesecake is a dessert enjoyed all over the world. Historically, it dates back to ancient Greece and Rome.

In the seventh century, the cheesecake was introduced to Eastern Europe through contact with the Byzantine Greeks. Later, in the 10th century, cheesecake was introduced to Western European countries through contact with its Byzantine counterparts or through the trade of goods between these regions.

In America, the first evidence of cheesecake dates back to 1796, when a cookbook called "American Cookery" listed a recipe for Philadelphia cheesecake. With the passage of time, this delicious dessert has made its way around the world through its gastronomic expansion.

Cheesecake has been an integral part of the dessert scene for centuries and has become very popular over time.

It is usually served on special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, christenings and other important events. Chefs have created many new types of cheesecake, such as Greek yogurt cheesecake or pumpkin cheesecake, red fruit cheesecake, etc?

We can say that cheesecake is a dessert that is constantly evolving and that passion fruit cheesecake with cream cheese is one of these many variations.
