no i think creme fraiche has a really bitter/sour taste to it, awful!! quark is just a smooth soft cheese it doesnt have loads of taste so will take on whatever you want to do with it

I cant stand the sweetener added to it to make a mock cream. I dont know if its my taste buds but no matter how much sweetener I put in I can still taste the sourness of the quark! But I do like it in savoury dishes. I use it to make a cheese type sauce for lasagne.

I get mine from morrisons too, I would imagine it would work instead of ricotta Rochelle

I make scrambled egg with quark, makes it really tasty! Or it goes well in mashed potato too. Also if you mix it with mayo and curry powder makes a really nice potato/pasta/sauce type thing. My favourite thought it cheese spread (just mix about 25g cheese with 1 heaped tsp quark) and it makes a lovely cheese spread to put on ryvitas or something?

Would quark make a cheesecake (my husband's favourite that I'm refusing to make at the moment!!).

There are many cheesecake recipes with Quark. Many people swear by this
Melt down 2 alpen light bars or 2 hifi light bars (HEX B) and mush down to make a base, then mix quark with a sachet of options hot choc (most flavours 2 syns so your choice!)and some sweetener and put that on top :)

Is Quark anything like half fat creme fraiche? I'm hesitant to use it in case it does! I love carbonara so will give it a try, also fancy something Key Lime-esque.
Hi there, just thought I'd give you a great SW carbonara recipe! Boil your spaghetti/pasta whatever and then drain it but don't rinse it. Mix 1 egg and 15g parmesan per person and literally just pour that mixture on your drained pasta to make a delicious sauce!!

Both Tesco and Sainsbury's are selling it at the moment and have been for a while in some areas in the North West.
