Chocolate Fish & Strawberry Cheesecakes

Breakfasted at Chocolate Fish around in Karaka Bay yesterday – a fine day and a last chance to eat there before it closes. Food and coffee was good as always although I had BROWN sour dough toast – having said that, it wasn’t too bad as far as brown bread goes. The story is Chocolate Fish are shutting up shop because the rates are too high – I’m not sure whether their stand is political or whether they really don’t make enough money (given that they’re heaving during the weekends) to pay the rates. The outdoor dining canopy comes down last week in November; 1/2 December is their last weekend trading as a cafe and then they’ll just be ice creams and takeaway coffees until 31 December when they close. Very sad.

So we turned to pudding! Success and new things from orange kitchen for dinner last night.

Made the cheesecakes up completely! Cobbled them together based on what I’d seen our friend do in Blenheim and a bit of a recipe I got from Mum once. There was too much butter in the base so it was a bit chewy but still tasted damn fine.
