Over the past several years, our family has been spending its summers with my parents in the US. Our kids love staying with the grandparents, but there is one thing they absolutely hate about these visit, the food. (Anyone who has ever been to Israel can vouch for the unbeatable taste and freshness of local food, especially produce and dairy). So naturally, they were extremely excited to discover containers of Israeli-made cream cheese at the neighborhood Costco store. (For the purists among the readers, the product is known in English as Quark Creamy Soft Cheese. Still, I’ll take the liberty of calling it cream cheese for the sake of simplicity.)
