Quark = curd?


I want to make a rhubarb cheesecake with a German recipe - the ingredients include Quark, which I am not sure I can get in US. Any ideas where to look for it, or how to substitute it? thanks!

  1. Yeah, it's a kind of light curd cheese. Check out the link below for some more input from both sides of the Atlantic, but it seems you could substitute creme/fromage fraiche, light ricotta, or maybe cream cheese if need be. Check out a European market if there are any around, but I don't see why any of the suggested subs, especially greek yogurt or neufchatel, wouldn't work. Never worked with it myself though, just enjoyed it's delicious creations.
