3. The Preparation for the Herb Curd

What can you get for your herb curd in the supermarket or weekly market?

Here is my list for you with the ingredients and alternatives.

4. Herbal Quark Preparation

A great herb quark lives from the addition and quality of the fresh herbs.

Of course you can also use frozen herbs, but I would only recommend this in case of an “emergency”.

You can even fry the herbs to get a better taste. 

The deep-fried herbs in the spread have another advantage as an ingredient:

The herb curd can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Fry the herbs: More taste and longer shelf life!

Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt

If necessary, you can add fresh herbs to the bread spread.

Thyme and rosemary, for example, are suitable for frying.  

You can add fresh chives, dill, parsley or cress to the quark.

Fried herbs develop a special aroma. That goes perfectly with the herb quark. Here is a crispy fried parsley leaf.

5. Herb Quark as a Side Dish


I suggest the wholesome and grainy breads:

Black bread, farmer’s bread, grain bread and pumpernickel

You can already find a whole grain bread elsewhere.


The boiled potatoes taste most delicious to me.

But baked potatoes are also delicious.


Instead of the usual BBQ sauce, this spread goes great with grilled meat.


Our herb quark also goes well with oven vegetables.
