    Mrs Goodall's Note:

    Got this fabulous recipe from Gourmet's 50th Anniversary issue. Gourmet recommends Scharffen Berger chocolate, if you can't find, substitute another high-quality bittersweet chocolate, I like Callebat. I usually buy Callebat mini chocolate chips and then I don't have to chop the chocolate. FYI...The cheescake must be chilled overnight. Enjoy!
