4 AT HOME NOVEMBER 14-20, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE LIVING EDITION Award-winning California cheesecake has local roots CUMBERLAND – This story is an interesting one that connects a Valley Falls, Cumberland gal named Virginia Edes Krone from the West Coast area of Orange County in San Clemente, Calif., to Dave's Marketplace in Cumberland. She is self described as bi-coastal, spending two months at a time here in Rhode Island and then returning to California where she works as a nurse in a hospital setting. Virginia grew up in Valley Falls, and her mom Zulmira, of the Teixeiras of Mill Street in Cumberland, was a wonderful cook, she recalls. Her mom passed away in 2006, and was more of a cake baker – not a pie person. "But our neighbor, Lidia Carvalho on School Street, made the most won- derful pies. I have always loved pies since," Virginia said. Her most recent culinary inspiration came due to a craving for the key lime pie at Dave's Marketplace – the crav- ing a catalyst to her trying to make a cheesecake for the very first time. She had never made cheesecake before but with the deadline for the Orange County Fair in California coming up she decided to go for it. She down- loaded the necessary paperwork and entered the OC Culinary Contest. "On a whim I decided to make a key lime cheesecake," she said. First, she searched for different reci- pes, ideally a basic and simple one. Over the next two weeks she made two experimental cheesecakes, she said. The first one she felt was too bland, the second one was gooey. What she learned in the process was that her oven temperature was 100 degrees off. "I went to Walmart and purchased an oven thermometer." Virginia shared, "The day before the contest deadline, I decided to go bold adding bourbon to the blackberry and filling. I went bolder with the amount of lime juice. For the chocolate crust, I scraped off the Oreo cream fillings The Recipe Box RHONDA HANSON Continues on next page Dining Guide Please Please Please Support Support Support these Local these Local these Local Advertisers Advertisers Advertisers 46 Putnam Pike, Johnston, RI 401-231-8111 web: email: © SPECIALS OF THE WEEK $ 3 16 oz Narragansett $ 4 Bottle of Sam Adams Octoberfest $ 18 Bottle of Matua Sauvignon Blanc $ 7 St. Brendan's Irish Caramel Coffee Baked Scrod • $ 15.95 Fresh scrod topped with a ritz cracker butter crumb topping, then baked to golden crumb perfection.
