Herb Quark Spread

I've made this beautiful spread using hand-made biodynamic quark and fresh herbs from my garden, served with home made sesame spelt crackers - a delicious afternoon tea!

Quark is a form of Central European soft cheese which is especially popular in Germany, it is deliciously creamy with a similar texture to ricotta. It is a very versatile cheese lending itself to both sweet and savoury dishes.

If you are lucky enough to live in Hawke's Bay New Zealand, you will find the best biodynamic quark along with many other award winning hand crafted cheeses at Hohepa Hawke's Bay in Clive.

Serves four

280g Quark
3 garlic cloves, crushed
handful fresh parsley, washed and finely chopped
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, washed and finely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
garlic salt

Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly, season to your liking. Serve with spelt and sesame crackers - recipe coming soon.
