The Art Of

My father, Eli Schulman, believed baking was an art...equal parts creativity, skill, and quality. In 1980, he declared cheesecake to be the signature dessert at his legendary Chicago steakhouse, Eli’s the Place for Steak. His unconventional fast and hot baking method resulted in Chicago-style Cheesecake, known for its beautiful caramelization and rich, creamy consistency. The key to Eli's unique taste and texture is sourcing ingredients like custom slow-cultured cream cheese and sour cream, Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Vanilla, and using an all-butter shortbread cookie crust. Our desserts are handmade and decorated at our third generation family-owned bakery, certified for outstanding food safety practices. Located in Chicago, we're committed to empowering our workforce through education and the hiring of refugees and individuals with disabilities. Most importantly, we follow my Dad's words of wisdom: "Charity will never bust you," and "Treat others as if you were the other." This year, we've taken the art of cheesecake to new heights by collaborating with prolific artist Nick Cave and his partner Bob Faust. According to Cave, "This rainbow package contains an extremely delicious collection of life tenets chosen and designed by myself and created by the extraordinary team at Eli's, as a response to my exhibition titled Forothermore. I see these tenets as guideposts as well as filters that warm and connect us to each other." The limited edition Nick Cave X Eli's Cheesecake Cuties, our 1x1 inch chocolate enrobed cheesecake squares, each sport a different color, flavor and symbol imparting the message "love and happiness equal peace." We first crossed paths when the three of us received the 2022 Mayor’s Medal of Honor, an award recognizing those who have made extraordinary contributions to Chicago. With a shared commitment to civic responsibility, Cave and Faust began dreaming up a collaboration that would celebrate the power of connection with proceeds benefiting their own nonprofit, Facility Foundation. The edible art will be available beginning November 1st. Two sets (10 Cuties) arrive in a custom box designed by the artists, guaranteed to make you smile. We hope we can make your special occasions, gift giving, and everyday sweet treats memorable and delicious!
