Can you get cream cheese there, Lisa? Or do they have a great similar kind of product?

I can get cream cheese here. It is pretty expensive. I wouldn't make a cheesecake out of it.
I can also use Quark if I let it drain in cheesecloth a couple of hours. Quark is what is called for in the German cheesecake recipes.

Wish we could get Quark here, Lisa-I really liked the German cheesecake-lovely and light and not as sweet as what we make. In the German Conversation Class that I took, we had a night when we all brought different things to eat and the instructor taught us the German names. She also brought two dips-one was Quark and Onion Soup mix, the other was Quark mixed with cherry pie filling. Lisa, if you have never tried the latter, it is delicious.

Does quark taste similar to yogurt or yogurt cheese? I saw it in England but didn't get any to taste.

I think Quark is creamier than that yogurt we get here and no,not like the yogurt cheese. I really like it. Actually, I wish we could get the European yogurt here-it is very good on cereal.

So it's not sort of tangy like yogurt?

The tang is comparable but it "pours" and the taste is just smoother.

Hmmm, that is strange. Two different opinions here.
I find the quark "tang" comparable as Roselin says, but the quark texture I don't like alone in dips. I temper it with yogurt when I use it to make a dip. The quark alone leaves an after taste that I just don't care for. In cooking it is fine, but just to flavor and use as a dip, I don't care for it.
