World Quark Day

World Quark Day is a worldwide holiday dedicated to the quark. This is a very tasty and soft cheese, which in its properties is much superior to the classic version of this product. In the CIS countries, it can often be found under the name “tvorog”. Celebrated annually on January 19th.


Please note that depending on the country, quark may be considered a separate product that is not related to cheese in any way. However, these are all nuances, because it is equally pleasant to enjoy a wonderful product under any name.

It is believed that the quark was invented in Germany. The recipe for this product is very simple. Milk must be kept to a certain degree of souring (this should be a natural process, not accelerated by various additives), after which it is driven through a sieve. The remaining dry part is the quark.

Celebrating World Quark Day was proposed by the “Quark Queen”. This woman lives in Bavaria and appreciates this type of cheese very much. She pays a lot of attention to proper nutrition and diets, so she decided to make the quark more popular around the world through the holiday.
