Doe’s Cheesecake is hand crafted with lemon zested love. And, they do not machine whip a lot of air into it. Owner Barry Levan’s mother, Doe made the amazing lemon zested cheesecake at home and his dad, Maur served it for about 45 years in dining rooms of clubs and hotels he managed in New York and Pennsylvania. Levan began making it in Nevada in 2010 and it was served in the dining room at David Walley’s Hot Springs Resort by three different chefs for over 10 years.
Levan was back home for Thanksgiving in 2012 and he said to his dad, “Mom made this cheesecake at home but I know it came from you, so what’s the story?” Levan’s dad told him that when he graduated from college at Penn State with a major in Hotel and Restaurant Administration, his first job was as a steward at a hotel in Philadelphia located next door to the Art Museum where Rocky jogs up and down the steps and this cheesecake came from the executive chef who was Austrian and to whom it was handed down from his grandmother. It’s the real thing and it has a real history going back a very long time.
Currently, Doe’s Cheesecake is made in a shared kitchen in Gardnerville, NV. The folks who lease the kitchen make Italian Hearts Pasta Sauces and since they don’t work every day they lease time to other makers. Right now, the kitchen is shared with Mitch’s Vegan Jerky who is making vegan jerky from tofu, and Fresh Baked Paleo, a mother and daughter team making gluten free baked goods. The shared kitchen is a concept that is revolutionary. For local support, Bella Vita Bistro & Catering has served Doe’s Cheesecake in three different restaurants over the last ten years. It is also served by The Bus Boy Mobile Cuisine, a double decker bus with a dining room upstairs which is truly awesome “high end” “street food” as well as Cafe Girasole in Gardnerville.
Doe’s Cheesecakes are handcrafted, lemon zested cheesecakes with a shortbread cookie crust. They are available in four sizes: 9″ serves 16-32, 5″ serves 4-6, 2″ muffin size, and Party Paks of sixteen 1″ cheesecakes.
