Eli's cheesecake began more than 35 years ago, rising to prominence first as a featured item at one of Chicago's most popular restaurants--Eli's The Place for Steak, a classic steakhouse and pillar of the city's culinary community that was also a noted celebrity watering hole. From Eli Schulman's first cheesecake creation at Eli's The Place for Steak to President Obama's 50th birthday cake, this book details the storied history of one of the nation's most famous desserts. This cookbook includes 40 distinct cheesecake recipes, including Original Plain, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Raisin, Chocolate Walnut, and Hawaiian. Schulman is often credited with putting Chicago-style cheesecake, richer and creamier than its New York counterpart, on the map.

A nice history of the iconic Eli's Cheesecake of Chicago. Lots of good ideas. Not necessarily something I would necessarily want as a reference book for my cookbook library.
