Mixed berries cheesecake

There are days when you don’t know what to say.
No story today. It’s long weekend. Finally.
There is Chinese-Italian wedding tomorrow. Poland just won 3 medals in the Olympics, 2 gold ones and one bronze.
I made this cheesecake for a house-warming party. And I must admit it was huge hit as quite a few people took more than one slice.
And you won’t be delighted with this recipe, as it calls for a curd cheese as usual. I was writing about a curd cheese in December. If you are brave, you can try ricotta and tell me how it went.
The recipe is very simple.
