The combination of cheeses gives the cheesecake a luscious flavor and texture. The creamy texture of the cream cheese combines with the light tang of the Quark for a melt in your mouth experience, then you get a rich finish from the goat cheese. Quality ingredients are important for this cheesecake to be successful. If you are in NW Washington State, I recommend heading to Gothberg Farms in Bow for the chèvre. The quality and flavor are much better than any goat cheese I have had from a grocery store.
