Wondrous Words Wednesday celebrates new words we find in our reading. I’d like to share a few I found while reading In Need of a Good Wife by Kelly O’Connor McNees. (I really loved the book.) The book was not about food but a couple of the unknown words turned out to be food.
1. quark cheese: She had made more puddings and quark cheese than they could possibly eat.
Quark cheese is a European fresh soft cheese with a mild flavor and similar in texture to whipped butter or ricotta cheese. It’s actually the most popular cheese in Germany and there are a million uses for it. (My information and photo came from here.)
