Confectionary from the House of Burchell Baked Cheese Tart ‘Nagoya’

The product, which is developed by the company "Izumoden Co., ltd.", is sold frozen. It is a Japanese version of the traditional cheesecake advertised as a Nagoya style baked cheese tart. What differentiates it from the classic version of the dessert is that in addition to the classic filling, this cheese tart also contains azuki paste (red beans) and a spiral of mochi (a rice flour preparation).

Its careful packaging in terms of both structure and appearance, offers a perfect degree of protection during the transport and defrosting phase, during which it should be kept in the refrigerator for a recommened duration of at least five hours.

Its very original composition and texture as well as its excellent organoleptic qualities led the Monde Selection jury to award this product a well-deserved Grand Gold Quality Award.

Amongst the qualities highlighted by the tasters, it is worth noting the quality of the biscuits which offer beautiful buttered notes as well as a discreet but very pleasant touch of almond powder.

The originality of the composition of this highly appreciated tart also lies in its composition which is enhanced by the addition of azuki and mochi that both confer it a very nice combination of texture and flavour.

The texture is indeed particularly pleasing on the palate thanks to its wonderful creaminess that establishes a very nice contrast with the deliciously shortbread-like quality of the base biscuit, which is impeccably baked and also offers a surprisingly good texture for a frozen product.

In the mouth, the flavour of the eggs is well balanced out with that of the cheese, which remains discreetly pronounced but of excellent quality.

A cake as successful as it is original, which makes it an undisputed nominee for the Monde Selection Jury Prize for the year 2022.


"Each year, one product per category is awarded the Prize of the Jury as a token of excellence in know-how and quality.
