Lisa Dosch from Ramsey, NJ once again has proven to be the Cheesecake Queen, bringing home three first place ribbons again at the NJ State Fair 2014. She was also a first place winner in 2012 and 2013 and in total has finished first seven times and second place once.
Dosch hand bakes her over 20 flavors of cheesecake at the West Gate Restaurant, which is part of the Best Western, Nyack On Hudson. She has become a local icon for her cakes described by fans as “creamy, smooth and delicious.”
Asked what her favorite flavor is, Dosch said, “It’s hard to single out one favorite flavor. I’m constantly creating new flavors only adding to a full selection to choose from. You can’t get these flavors any place else in the world. I had a customer request a Hennessey Cheesecake. I created it just for him and he enjoyed it so much he ordered more. Another new flavor is Jack Daniel’s Honey which is like sweet honey on the palette. Other flavors are Strawberry, Blueberry, Cherry, Coconut, Pina Colada, Espresso, Chocolate Strawberry, and many many more.”
Dosch says of her customers, “I love watching their expressions as they let each bite melt in their mouth and they lose themselves.”
Her plain cheesecake has won the NJ competition three years in a row. Her other winning flavors are Key Lime, Pumpkin, Coconut, Blueberry and Plain with a Mixed Berry Topping.
