WOuld Quark work as a substitute for Creme Fraiche?

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.

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


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??
