Meat and potatoes are a classic combo for a reason. A juicy grilled steak pairs well with tender new potatoes. But how can you add a twist to this timeless dish? By adding a little quark.
Quark is a type of fresh cheese made of soured milk that is very popular in Germany, Poland and Austria. It has a spreadable consistency and enough tang to pair with a grilled steak and potato. Quark is very versatile and is eaten for breakfast, mixed into desserts and blended with herbs.
If you can't find quark at your nearest supermarket, you can try making your own. This way you'll be sure to add a little zing to many more summer dishes.
Rather than just being faux-meat, Mamu is different. It's a mushroom-based meat alternative that's getting its launch in restaurants so that chefs can test its versatility. Flora Tsapovsky investigates.
