I need a recipe for white chocolate and ginger cheesecake - anyone help?

I'm making sushi for a bunch of friends on new year's eve, and I want to top it all off with a white chocolate and ginger cheesecake.

It's something they do in Wagamamas, and I want to copy it!

Bear in mind I've never made a cheesecake before, so very easy to follow instructions appreciated.

Or if anyone has any great ideas for other Japanese inspired desserts, I'd love to hear them.

    white chocolate-ginger cheesecake

    Ginger's peppery flavor is the perfect foil for white chocolate. Here, the ginger is used in several forms, each contributing its own nuance: Crystallized ginger provides texture and a warm bite to the filling, gingersnaps are used for the crust, and ground ginger enhances both crust and filling. Begin making this dessert a day ahead.

    Servings: Serves 12 to 14.

    Ingredients

    CRUST

    13 ounces gingersnap cookies (about 50 cookies)

    2 tablespoons sugar

    1 teaspoon ground ginger

    6 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, cooled

    FILLING

    1 pound good-quality chocolate (such as Lindt or Baker's), finely chopped

    4 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature

    1/4 cup sugar

    4 large eggs, room temperature

    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    1 teaspoon ground ginger

    2/3 cup minced crystallized ginger

    White chocolate curls

    Preparation

    FOR CRUST: Butter 9-inch-diameter springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides. Wrap outside of pan with 2 layers of heavy-duty foil. Finely grind cookies, sugar and ginger in processor. Add butter; blend until moist clumps form. Press onto bottom and up sides of pan. Chill while preparing filling.

    FOR FILLING: Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 300°F. Stir white chocolate in top of double boiler set over hot water until chocolate melts. Cool to lukewarm, stirring occasionally.

    Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl until fluffy, about

    3 minutes. Add eggs and yolk 1 at a time, beating just until combined after each addition. Beat in vanilla and ground ginger. Gradually beat in melted white chocolate. Stir in crystallized ginger.

    Transfer filling to prepared crust. Place springform pan in large roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of springform pan. Bake until cheesecake puffs and edges crack slightly, about 1 1/2 hours.

    Transfer cake to rack. Run small knife around sides of cake to loosen. Cool completely. Remove foil from pan sides. Chill cake overnight. (Can be prepared

    3 days ahead. Cover and keep chilled.)

    Release pan sides. Transfer cake to platter. Top with chocolate curls.

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here https://biturl.im/aU7hU

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true
