Jolanda’s Pomegranate Cheesecake

We have been blessed to have the very talented Jolanda Dalzotto come and work on our block 
for the past 5 or 6 years.  This year she was keen to create something with our pomegranates and
came up with this amazing cheesecake recipe!  We can't wait for the next pomegranate season so
our tastebuds can revisit the perfect combination of a creamy centre, chocolate base and, of course, 
a burst of flavour from the pomegranates!  Thank you Jolanda, we look forward to seeing next 
year's creation!
