"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
This is the cheesecake that I always make for dad's birthday. I don't know if my pan is smaller than the recipe calls for or what, but I usually have to bake it about 2 hours until the center doesn't jiggle when the pan is moved a little. You have to use a springform pan for this recipe.
