Have a wonderful and safe summer!

CHEESECAKE FOR WINE LOVERS
Farragut Wine & Spirits December 2010 Newsletter
David and I always watch CBS Sunday Morning and a couple of weeks ago they did a segment on cheesecakes and one really caught our eye. Cheesecakes made with wine! What a deliciously good idea and I wonder why someone has not done this before.
I spoke with Anna, the owner and creator of SaborAm Taste of Indulgence and found out she is a "local" girl in nearby Cashiers, North Carolina. In her own words she explains how she came up with the idea, "When I was with some friends in Manhattan, enjoying a memorable al fresco dining experience I noticed the chocolate shop across the street. Since the restaurant did not offer chocolates, I asked if I would be allowed to purchase some of the chocolates and bring them back to enjoy with our cheesecake and wine. Upon flying back to North Carolina she kept reflecting on that special dessert experience and what could be created to recapture a euphoric comfort, in creaminess and texture, something that would overwhelm one's palate and senses... After years of working on the idea and perfecting the recipes I came up with my luxury line of cheesecakes."
She searched and searched and decided on Mikkelson Pastry Shop in Naples, Florida to do the actual baking of her creations. Each cake weighs 5.5 pounds and serves 6-8 slices. They are now offered via Amazon and in the Neiman Marcus 2010 Holiday Catalog (Sabor Lux Cheesecake only)
Captivating Cabernet is a whimsical blending of harvest ingredients and Cabernet Wine.
Mystifying Merlot is Merlot laced with just a touch of Pomegranate juice, talk about a major boost of anti-oxidants for Oenophiles!
Sabor Lux - An Affordable Luxury is Champagne infused cheesecake with Orange! Orange zest and champagne cheesecake flavored with honey and pure vanilla.
Elegancia Pinot Noir - Elegantly Balanced Culinary Masterpiece. Cocoa, chocolate and Pinot Noir! Wow! A cocoa & chocolate liquor cheesecake perfumed with Pinot Noir. The addition of this fine grape brings richness and depth to this cheesecake, like no other.
Zintuous Zinfandel - Is it Sin or Is It Zin? Zinfandel based with violet-rose luster dust! A white zinfandel based cheesecake drizzled with white chocolate granache. This is pure sin, or is it Zin!
The Sabor Lux Champagne Cheesecake is available at Neiman Marcus for $100 and approximately $57 at Amazon, but Anna said if you email her directly at www.SaborAm.com she will get your order to Mikkelson's and have them send you the cheesecake directly. Mention you heard about her through Farragut Wine & Spirits and she will make certain you will receive the special "good neighbor” pricing of appx. $48, plus shipping. At this special pricing you will be able to treat all the Santa’s on your list to a "Taste of Indulgence". I know I am!
Anna – thank you so much. We were out of town from Thurs to late Sat night so I didn’t get a chance to taste the cheesecake until last night. It is amazing good. I will definitely be buying more at the holidays and will recommend to my family and friends
The cheese cake was wonderful. Unlike Bob I like but don't usually love cheese cake, yours was the exception. Usually cheese cake has a millie texture that I find unappealing, yours was as smooth as silk. It was similar to the texture of a heavier moose but lighter than a pudding. The flavor was also wonderful. I loved the deep, dark chocolate topping and the slightly lemony taste of the cheese cake.
Suffice it to say, I am a big supporter.

The Pino Noir cake was incredible and I mean that! it was perfectly balanced and how the Pino Noir just laced it's way through all the ingredients excellent! I shared some with my managers they really loved it not only how well it tasted but the concept.If you ever want to pitch it to Whole Foods they showed interest my manager that is, again thank you and GOOD LUCK you have a culinary masterpiece on your hands.
“I had the opportunity of having the Sabor Lux cheesecake at a party, and let me just say, it is a rich, sinful experience that tortured me with pleasure. As one who loves cheesecake and has had the opportunity to have it throughout the world, this stands above them all. It is so wonderful and tempting, this is truly a pleasure not to miss.”

I have tasted both the Ne Plus Ultra- Champagne Cheesecake and the Decadent "Diablo" Mocchanocino Cheesecake, and I have never tasted anything quite like them.
They are both so creamy, and rich with flavor. You must try them yourself to experience how wonderful they are!
Congratulations SaborAM ....you are really on to something!
