  1. HEllo,
    I made a pasta tonight from a Jamie Oliver book which used creme fraiche and was wondering if i could use quark instead. If i could i have worked out it would be free on extra easy if i used the parmasean cheese as a healthy extra.
    Never used quark before so not sure what it tastes like but imagine it is quite sour in taste.

    This is the type of thing i would do, but as your using for the first time, why not try half & half.

    Quark does take a bit of getting used to.

    Hi Carrie!

    very low fat fromage frais is another option - not so thick as quark and slightly less er, quarky in flavour. Or maybe half quark half from frais? It might also need some decent seasoning added i think! x

    You can actually make your own creme fraiche, however it is by using sour cream and whipping cream lol, so not much use.

    I know you can get a half fat creme fraiche, maybe you could use that and syn it if the recipe doesnt require a lot of it.

    Try mixing equal amounts of quark with low fat natural yoghurt. I used this in a fruit roulade and it was lovely, but should still work in a savoury dish.

    I find quark to taste quite like Philadelphia!! I'm not sure what you'd use but isn't creme fraiche sweeter??
