Ispahan Cheesecake

Last week it was my mother's birthday and I wanted to prepare something special, so I made this delicious cheesecake, using Pierre Hermé's desserts as an inspiration, If you don't know who am i talking, this amazing french pastry chef is famous for his beautiful desserts and his exceptional flavour combinations, that's why I mixed my mother's favourite dessert, with one of Pierre's flavour combinations, Ispahan (Raspberries, Lychee and rose water) and since my mother loves strawberries cheesecake, I changed raspberries from the original equation, and as a result we have a delicious cake with soft flower notes and a perfect touch of acidity from the strawberries, to give it a nice touch, I covered it with grounded pistachios and edible gold dust.
