I have just discovered Chow.com because I did a web search for Sheepshead Cafe Chocolate Almond Cheesecake. I knew it was a long shot, but I just wanted to see what would come up.
It led me to Chow.com and some messages from 2006 suggesting places to go in Iowa City, IA. There was a continuing discussion about Sheepshead Cafe and their cheesecake (I had an addiction for their tomato soup too!). So I've decided to start a new message about Sheepshead to see if anyone out there knows recipes or worked for them or knows ANYTHING! I know some of their products came from a bakery (Frenchbread bakery or something like that), don't know if the cheesecake was made by Sheepshead or a bakery. I've tried to make an chocolate almond cheesecake like the one at Sheepshead, but it doesn't turn out just right. It's that crust that's difficult, it's the kind that makes it's own crust I believe.
Ok, just throwing this out there!
Now in Minnesota!
