Chef Shiri Says… 

Cheesecake is believed to have been made first in ancient Greece. Historians say that Olympic athletes ate cheesecake before an event to give them energy

Where’s the Cheese? 

About 4 percent of all cheese is stolen by shoplifters! That makes it the most common food to be stolen in the entire world.
