Curd cheese

Curd cheese is a soft white unaged cheese, similar in fat content to cottage cheese, but with a smooth texture like cream cheese. Quark is a low fat version, and is relatively easy to find in large supermarkets.

curd cheese

from yahoo answers--

Curd cheese has different meanings depending on where you are.

Curd cheese is similar to cream cheese but with a lower fat content and it, like cottage cheese, has had a lactic starter added. This gives it a light acidity and a light flavour, colour and texture. It is sometimes called medium-fat soft cheese. I like it best of all for cheesecakes because it gives them a lighter flavour and texture, as you will discover if you make the Curd Cheesecake with Greek Yoghurt

the best "recipe" i have come across for curd cheese (or a cheats version of it) as it is nearly impossible to find here in the states--

using full fat greek yogurt (i like the brand FAGE), get a large sieve and line it with a coffee filter and put the yogurt into the coffee filter and let it drip away in the frig over night...what you are left with is a kind of "yogurt cheese"
(as graham kerr described it in his post galloping gourmet days)....a bit of effort?? yes!!! but the results should be outstanding......all the comments i have read, use full fat yogurt for best results...


cheers
