Airy/fluffy cheesecake?

mooncaked | Jan 24, 201001:06 PM

It's the BF's birthday tomorrow and his favorite cake is a simple cheesecake + strawberries. He's a pretty big fan of the Cheesecake Factory's version, but we recently came across another restaurant's cheesecake that he has declared to be his new reigning favorite. It was described on the menu as "A lighter, fluffier version of its New York cousin", and that's exactly what it was -- all the richness and decadence of a NY cheesecake, but with a light and fluffy texture.

I've come across various tips for a light cheesecake -- ricotta, mascarpone, whipping the egg whites first, etc, but lack the time + resources to test all of them out. Please share any tried-and-true recipes for your favorite airy and fluffy cheesecakes!
