Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the Parmesan, bread crumbs and
butter until thoroughly blended, and press into a 9-inch springform pan. In
a saute pan, heat the olive oil. Add the onions, shallots, garlic and
peppers, and saute for 2 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and season with
salt and pepper, saute for 1 to 2 minutes, and remove from heat. Using an
electric mixer beat the cream cheese with the eggs in a large bowl until
very thick, about 5 minutes. Beat in the cream, Gouda, sauteed vegetables
and crab meat. Mix until thoroughly incorporated and creamy, for about 2
minutes. Pour the filling over the crust in the springform pan and bake
until firm, for about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to
room temperature.

For the sauce: In a small mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients
together, mix to incorporate.

Season with salt and pepper. Chill. Spoon a pool of the coulis in the
center of a plate. Place a piece of the cheesecake in the center of the
coulis. Garnish with the egg yolks, egg whites, chives, long chives, capers
and red onions.
