The Ultimate Quark Guide & Cookbook | Review & Giveaway

I was sent a copy of this book for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post also contains affiliate links.

As someone who follows Slimming World (although I really do need to get back on track properly now), quark is definitely something on my radar. You may not have realised but it was recently World Quark Day. To celebrate on this day, Queen of Quark released an updated e-book copy of the guide & cookbook.

The Queen of Quark was born and raised in Germany and has been a lover of quark since an early age. Realising quark wasn’t used as much universally, she made it her mission to change that and introduce it to people across the world through some wonderful recipes.

I was kindly provided with a copy of the book for review which is great for me as someone who uses quark quite a bit. However I have often found myself making the same few dishes as I wasn’t sure what else I could use quark for. Well I need wonder no longer.

The guide and cookbook itself starts off with introductions, acknowledgments and all the usual stuff you’d expect. I also loved the quotes interspersed throughout the book about healthy eating and food. As someone who is getting back into the swing of healthy eating, this is really helpful.

There are a range of different recipes to try – from breakfast dishes to soups to delicious desserts. We’ve only used quark in the past for lasagne and a couple of different desserts so it was truly interesting to see what other dishes I could attempt. I’ve now got a list as long as my arm of dishes I want to try – there’s a few different desserts that the kids are desperate to try!

These are just three of my top picks from the cookbook. We love pancakes in our house so these are definitely worth a try and I can see these being a weekend staple breakfast for a while to come. I’m probably the only real soup fan in my house so I don’t make it very often but this will definitely be worth trying when I do.

Now what can I say about the cheesecake? How delicious does it look? Cheesecake is one of my family’s favourite desserts so I can safely say this recipe will be tested out soon!

All in all, I quite enjoyed this guide and cookbook from the Queen of Quark. I really liked finding out more about quark and discovering recipes that I would never have thought of using quark in. I can’t wait to tie these recipes into my healthy eating and see how I get on. This cookbook will certainly be getting a lot of use.

  1. Admittedly this isn’t what I expected to read about Quark. To me it is a publishing programme that we used to use at work many moons ago! But that cheesecake looks phenomenal!

  2. I’ve come across SO many delicious-looking recipes using Quark recently, but I still haven’t tried using it! I definitely need to pull my finger out and try it. I mean, how tasty does that cheesecake look!? Amazing!!

  3. I often use quark to make a dip with garlic and herbs or cheesecake. Quark is also a great home remedy to use on inflamed and swollen joints.

  4. I haven’t used quark before, but I have seen a few recipes recently which look good. I would probably try the pancakes first.

  5. I love using Quark, but would love to expand my knowledge of recipes as I always stick to the same tried and tested ones. My favourite’s are Mississippi Mud Pie and Vegetable Carbonara – totally scrumptious

  6. I have used it to make a cheese and chive dip that was very good, and like using it to make a creamy pasta sauce with mushrooks and garlic

  7. The cheese and chive deep sounds good – thanks for this number three son has decided to eat no meat and this is great for ideas for him

  8. I’ve not really used quark so this would be good to find out and try more. I like the sound of the cheese and chive dip that is mentioned
