Buying Polish Groceries in Melbourne?

18 Jul 2013 #1

I'm trying to find a cottage Polish cheese. Used to be able to buy it years ago but haven't seen it for a long time, so not sure if it is still available.

The packet had a picture of a cow on the cover and a pattern like red and white checks, like a tablecloth. It was a smooth cottage cheese, not like the lumpy one you can buy in the supermarket.

Sorry it that sounds vague LOL.

Anyone know where in Melbourne I can buy this?

It was a smooth cottage cheese

Sounds like a cheese called Twaróg. Also known as Quark. Can't help you with where to buy, but now you have name search might be easier.

Yup, quark it is, think of it like regular cottage cheese you get in the tubs but with no liquid. With that name in mind, a quick google search shows plenty of places but it looks like you would be most prosperous looking at Farmers Markets, Organic Food outlets and Health Food stores (I don't know any of the shops mentioned in a google search, but they have sort of organic/health food sounding names).

Hope that helps :)

The Polish Deli at Queen Victoria Market have Polish Style Cottage Cheese. Very nice, like the one the supermarkets used to carry.

Where to buy Sliwki w Occie in Melbourne


Just like the title states, I'm looking for marinated Hungarian plums. I haven't had them in 30 years and desperately craving them! I can't find the right fresh plums in my area so I can't make them myself. Does anyone know where to buy it online or where something might be available in South Eastern Suburbs Vic?

Thanks ^_^

her is a few good producers of polish/european style cottage cheese, Somehow they dissapeared after Christmas ( maybe holiday season) . Currently able to fund: Quark poorly processed - too watery ( concentrated on selling expensive water, similar to some hams). COSTCO have reasonable proces block of something they call cottage cheese. Iy is plastic tasting dry block od cheese like substance, completely tasteless. I made usable mixing it with pinch of salt, some full fat cream and a bit os lemon juice.
