    it's sort of a soft cheese found near the cottage cheese. It's great for cooking with everything sweet & savoury

    The thing about quark is that it has a fairly sour taste, so you need to add flavours to it so it tastes nice.

    I've not tried heating it - does it heat up OK, or does it curdle? I've tried warming muller light yogurts, and they always curdle.

    I've read somewhere that quark is nice with a white chocolate option stirred through it. Has anyone tried this or with the dark chocolate options?

    I'm not a quark lover no matter what I put with it - I've tried white options and there is always a sour after taste which reminds me of very sharp natural yoghurt.

    If that puts you off, try adding some lemon zest and little lemon flavouring and folding into a beaten egg white to make a lemon mousse. The tart taste of the lemon works well with the quark flavour and so far, is the only flavour I can find to make quark edible!;)
