Elizabeth, the cheesecake is gorgeous, but other than the tangerine section and the strawberry slice, I don't recognize anything in it, except cream cheese. Is that a mango fruit topping? What type of seasoning is in the cheese? Inquiring minds and all that!

In the foreground is mandarine orange topping and large mandarine slices; in the midground with melon slices is strawberry-melon topping, and in the deep background with the black grapes is maracuyá passionfruit topping. The cheese is quite neutral - it's a blend of gingered sugar with vanilla and three cheeses (I use mascarpone, cream, and ricotta).

Mangoes are not quite yet in season - the first of the ambassadors have just arrived, and the good mangoes for cheesecake topping will be at least another two or three weeks. When I do have mango cheesecake, though, I tend to blend the pulp in with the cheese, then top with additional mango gelée.
