It was love at first taste.
When my friend Amy of Marcoot Jersey Creamery encouraged me to try some of MJC's yummy quark, I spread a tiny bit on a piece of bread and fell in love. Quark, a soft spreadable cheese more well known in German communities is just one of the deeee-lightful Artisan cheeses Amy & her family of seventh generation dairy farmers produce.
While visiting the Marcoot Jersey Farm & Marcoot Jersey Creamery last month I got a good sense of appreciation for how hard dairy farmers work. I may be a suburban girl through & through, but I can mostly definitely tip my hat to the small farmers of America! I made sure to show my utmost appreciation by sampling everything I could: fresh mozzarella, gourmet flavored ice cream, havarti, cheddar, and of course my personal favorites quark & cheese curds. Friends, you haven't lived until you've eaten quark & curds from MJC!
Food this good is a work of art, so I enjoyed doing a bit of food photography. It was fun to experiment in a different genre of photography, and I really enjoyed showcasing their delicious products! Never have I had a more tasty shoot!
