Question: I love the cheesecakes at Harbor Fish Market & Grille and I know that you make them right there. How do you keep the cheesecakes from splitting when you cook them?
DC Chef Kara Walker of Harbor Fish Market & Grille shares her secret for preventing the infamous crack in cheesecakes:
Thank you for the lovely compliment! Actually, it is pretty simple to keep cheesecakes from cracking. I simply put a small metal pan in the oven that contains about a cup or two of water. The extra moisture from the water in the oven keeps the cheesecake moist so it won’t crack.
