The British Larder in Suffolk, England

Baked white chocolate and rhubarb cheesecake

Say hello to the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. This is the baked white chocolate and rhubarb cheesecake from The British Larder in Suffolk, UK. I was whisked off to this gorgeous gastropub in Woodbridge in Suffolk in late 2013 (December 23, to be precise – and yes I’m aware I’m more than a year late in sharing!) on one cold, windy evening.

It was all very stressful, as the trains were running late that day due to weather conditions, and I was on my way back to Ipswich after a long trek across the country (Ipswich-Leicester-Leeds-Ipswich in two days…never again). The trains had been timed perfectly, or so I thought, but by the time I rolled out at Ipswich’s train station, we were watching the clock. We were only slightly late, thank goodness, and we, the group of five, were ushered inside a warm, cosy pub.

And now I will warn you: as I ate this more than a year ago, and took no notes, I have only vague recollections of everything I ate. At the time I was sure I’d post my thoughts within a few days, and then life took over. Readers of this blog [so, that’s three of us? :)] may have noticed the draught of posts. So when I returned, I decided it had to be with this, even though I couldn’t talk about more than just the cheesecake.

The cheesecake was sublime. Baked just to the right amount, rhubarb snaked its way through the delicate, yet filling, cake – and took my breath away. I Instagram’d and tweeted right away, so excited was I to finally find, what I thought was the cheesecake holy grail.

Twitter proof:

The rest of the meal (that came before the cheesecake obvs) was equally delicious, and I sorely regret not posting sooner so I could give my impressions of every single item. But take my word on it – it was all superb. Photos here:
