The Boars Head Sweet Potato Cheesecake

See also

I love Southern cuisine...especially the wonderful desserts. Today's cheesecake recipe (and vacation idea) comes from Boars Head, a lovely Virginia resort, offering a warm, intimate ambiance, exceptional service and unparalleled Southern hospitality. Located on a gorgeous 573-acre country estate, the 4-Diamond resort offers 175 renovated guest rooms and suites, 4-Diamond dining in the Old Mill Room, a wide variety of world class recreational activities, spa and 22,000 square feet of meeting facilities for groups of 20 to 630. Owned and operated by the University of Virginia Foundation, Boar’s Head is just minutes from the University of Virginia that was founded by Thomas Jefferson, only two hours from Washington, D.C., and at the foot of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Taking the farm-to-table initiative to the next level, Morven Farm produce from the Kitchen Garden finds its way to the Boar’s Head kitchen within two hours of being harvested. This cooperative program complements The Boar’s Head culinary team’s sourcing of products from local purveyors. They currently receive daily delivery of herbs and varieties of lettuces from Morven. They also bring local apples, tomatoes, squash and additional culinary delights from other area farms, orchards and granaries to the plates of their guests.

Enjoy today's Southern delight compliments of the Old Mill Room. The Boar’s Head Four Diamond Old Mill Room offers an upscale dining experience via a dynamic energetic staff, a solid culinary foundation, and appreciation for delivering amazing cuisine with exceptional service.

To make reservations at Charlottesville’s Only Four-Diamond Resort , please call 434.296.2181 or 800.476.1988; visit the resort’s web site at; or “Like” The Boar's Head on Facebook.
