Prairie du Chien, WI

Wisconsin is famously hard core cheese country.

So fresh off the plane, there's already discussion of taking me to try cheese curds...stored and served at room temperature. You know they're fresh because they squeak when you bite into them.

First up, though? FRIED cheese curds. I'm not really a big fan of the current country fair craze of battering and frying ANYTHING you get your hands on. But, my girl ordered them anyway - and what came to the table was nothing shirt of miraculous.

Housed in fairly large, twisted golden nuggets is the soft velvet of hot curd. Frying technique was perfect...light, greaseless. The curd itself was so fresh that the bites melted on my butter.

They were a revelation and have forever changed my mind about those fairs!
