Jan Rosen was the original creator of the now famous cheesecake recipe for the restaurant she and her sister opened in 1983. In 1984, the sisters delivered a cheesecake to their friend Dorothy Uhlemann in Hollywood. Dorothy just happened to be Frank Sinatra's personal assistant. Dorothy shared the rich, creamy cheesecake with the buttery shortbread crust with Mr. Sinatra. The rest is history. For years, the J.M. Rosen Cheesecake was a favorite of Ol' Blue Eyes who frequently sought out his craving when in California.
Mr. Sinatra was such an avid fan of the J.M. Rosen Cheesecake, he talked it up with some of his favorite restaurants' owners. Maude Chasen from Chasen's in Beverly Hills called and ordered a sample. One week later, Michele and Jan were regularly delivering cheesecakes to Chasen's, Matteo's, Frank and Musso's Grill, the Regent Beverly Wilshire and dozens more.
Today all flavors of J.M. Rosen's Cheesecakes are still handmade by the original baker that Jan hired, Fernando Casillas. The same exquisite, melt-in-your-mouth shortbread crust is better than ever. Over the years, J.M. Rosen's (new owner, Fernando Casillas) has introduced a variety of decadent desserts, all bearing Jan Rosen's "Trademark of Quality."
Best Cheesecake in California for fine food restaurant desserts. These quality cheesecakes and most famous for California make the best desserts in fine food restaurants such as Matteo's for example. In the San Francisco Bay Area our cakes have even made a splash in the fine restaurants of Southern California as well. We are proud of our accomplishments and hope to share them with you soon.
