    Fresh Quark Croustades with Herb Bouquet

    This recipe offers quark au naturel. Slather generously on a croustade (the French culinary term for a crisp piece of bread) and adorn with a combination of herbs from the accompanying herb bouquet.

    Take quark out of fridge 15 minutes before serving, as cheeses are best served at room temperature.

    Edible flowers make the herb bouquet wonderful and varied throughout the summer and fall. Scarlet runner bean flowers are beautiful, as are chive flowers, borage blooms, arugula flowers, lavender, bachelor buttons, and any other herb flower. If plating for a crowd seated closely together, use a medium vase stuffed with fresh herbs and a bowl of fresh quark surrounded by croustades, with a variety of finishing salts and cold-pressed oils. Tear and taste in unison.
