Our Kwark (also known as Quark) is moist, snowy white in colour with a subtle taste similar to sour cream but with the texture of cottage cheese. It is made from partially skimmed milk and is most often eaten with fruit, nuts, vegetables and salads. This soft thin creamy cheese is usually an essential ingredient in baking cheesecakes and pastries.
