3. Soften the cheese in a large mixing bowl. Beat in the lemon rind and juice, egg yolks, tomato puree, soured cream and salt and pepper to taste.

4. Put the gelatine and water into a small heatproof bowl over a saucepan of hot water and stir until the gelatine has dissolved.

8. Ease the sides of the tin carefully away from the cheesecake and lift the set cheesecake out on the tin base.

9. Spread the side of the cheesecake evenly with the mayonnaise and coat with the chopped parsley.

10. Beat the cheese with the lemon juice until soft, and pipe on the cheesecake.

11. Garnish with sliced stuffed olives.
