This sounds like the cheese we use in Poland. here you can find a recipe for making it yourself. It is also available in a new Polish online store here (as well as lots of other Polish products). Recipes for Polish cheesecake here
I'm very curious about twarog (is it correct?)). But if it is the kind of cheese I think it is, then it's not quark - as it is translated in English.

You have to try a cheescake made of greek yogurt 10% and mascarpone. It is really good!

Re: What kind of cheese do you use for a really good cheesecake?

I posted this a while ago in the Basel cooking and baking thread, just copy-pasting as its relevant:

Wife's away and I have too much energy and spare time
As we love cheesecake, was wondering what is the best cream cheese? Did a small test. As much as i wanted the home made greek yogurt to be the winner, it was actually the plain philadelphia than won the contest. At least in our house.

Cool! I thought I was the only one who did blind tastings for my family.

Back to the thread - Moro's yogurt cake is really good though not exactly a cheese cake.

A recipe based on it here

Re: What kind of cheese do you use for a really good cheesecake?

New York-style cheesecake: I use Philadelphia and sour cream.
Israeli-style cheesecake: Israeli white cheese (gvina levana) - you can find it in Zurich at the Kosher supermarket in Wiedikon.
German-style cheesecake: usually quark or Greek yogurt if I cannot find quark.

I never tried mascarpone in a cheesecake, I only ever used it for tiramisu and smothered on a slice of panettone at 2am on New Year's eve after the midnight lentils and cotechino.

Re: What kind of cheese do you use for a really good cheesecake?

After trying a couple different cheese combination for NY Cheesecake, I found part Philadelphia and part Migros m-budget + sour cream works the best for us.
Don't leave out the sour cream, it really does make a difference

You're right, sour cream is an essential ingredient (which I missed when I made this cake for the first time), I tried one recipe like that, except that instead of Migros budget I used Mascarpone (it has such a rich texture IMHO, quite difficult to find something as complete in taste and texture like this one..). At least for NY cheese cake.


I am glad that there are so many cheese cake aficionados here, thank you for all these tips guys. We could start a club or something.
