Eileen has been baking for nearly 40 years as one of New Yorks top bakers. She started baking Cheesecakes out of her apartment
in 1973 after she sampled a cake in a deli and told the owner that her mothers' recipe was the only Cheesecake she liked. That very day the owner told her if her Cheesecake recipe was so good he would have to taste it. The owner gave her the ingredients to bake the cake and began placing orders the very next day after he sampled her sweet bites.
Shortly after that day her sweet success began to grow as she took space in Queens. Eileen began her wholesale business and soon started selling retail as passerbys and word of mouth began to request her delicious New York Style Cheesecake. A short time after in 1976 Eileen moved her bakery to its current location at 17 Cleveland Place New York, NY. Being close to Little Italy helped her retail business blossom and her warm personality made her an instant hit in the neighborhood.
Today Eileen has been praised as New York's Best Cheesecake by Celebrity Chefs, The Zagat guide, WOR Radio, and nationally recognized food critics. She has been recently
featured on The Food Network's Food Feud, Throwdown with Bobby Flay and the Cooking Channel's inaugural show for Foodcrafters as well.
