Tuesday, July 30 is National Cheesecake Day! This simple dessert has several variations – including the New York-style, the Philadelphia style, even a Chicago style.
But none of those were the first.
Apparently, it was the Greek-style that started it all.
According to the National Day Calendar, an ancient Greek physician wrote a book on the art of making cheesecakes thousands of years ago.
To celebrate the foodie holiday, Cheesecake Factory is offering all dine-in guests a slice of cheesecake for half off. The offer is valid at all U.S. restaurants but applies to dine-in guests only.
Cheesecake Factory is also celebrating the release of its newest cheesecake flavors – the Pineapple Upside-Down Cheesecake.
