Should I eat it?→[More:]
An untouched piece of plain cheesecake, bought last Thursday from a restaurant, kept in a styrofoam take-out container and refrigerated. Smells and looks normal, but it's been nearly a week. What do you think?
If it's from a restaurant it probably already waited for a week before being served, yes?
Also, yes, in my restaurant career I served many a cheesecake that was months old, then defrosted, then served out gradually for 2 weeks or so. Quite common. It doesn't get hard around the edges because you tuck Saran wrap tightly around it.
