Quark may be new to America, but it has been a culinary tradition in Europe for centuries. From my home country Germany (quark) to France (fromage blanc), from Norway (kvarg) to Russia (tvorog). It has been a staple in my childhood and I was super excited when Misha's Dairy hired me to photograph their campaign to introduce quark to the American market.
On the team were Liz Mazzei (art director & producer), Laurie Knoop (food styling) and Mia Müller-Schöll (assistant). We had a lovely shoot at Misha's Headquarters in Manhattan with co-founcer Kamilya. You can find out where to taste and purchase their products on their blog.
