The Wisconsin Festival That Celebrates Deep Fried Cheese Curds Returns
If there's any celebration you need to make sure you make it to this summer, it's this one. Nobody does cheese better than Wisconsin, especially deep-fried.
Real Wisconsin Fried Cheese Curds
You can walk into any conversation about food and bring up fried cheese curds and immediately, everyone in that conversation will tell you what place has the best curds. The state of Wisconsin does not play around with cheese.
Wisconsin makes the best cheese in the world, yes that's my opinion. But If you're in another state eating fried curds, if those curds taste great, I'll bet it says "made with Wisconsin cheese" on the menu.
