The sauces are made by British Farmers and have just won 'Best Brand Extension' at the World Dairy Innovation Awards.
Quark is a naturally fat free soft cheese and after launching British Quark to the UK in 2013 they have now introduced creamy quark based stir-in sauces.
I've road tested a few of the sauces in my kitchen, and if I did a 'blindfold' test, I wouldn't know they were being marketed as a healthy alternative to sauces containing double cream or creme fraiche because they really do taste quite indulgent. The sauces contain no preservatives or artificial flavours.
I made Chicken Tikka & Quark Rice......
