This week we are going a little local on this blog. This will be my one last hurrah, Summer blog before we start heading in the fall.
This blog is all about Wisconsin Cheese Curds. We have a local stand in the Wausau area called the “Everest Area Optimist Club” who serves cheese curds, brats, hamburgers and hot dogs about a half of dozen times a Summer. They’re always parked at Ace Hardware in Weston, WI (Wausau suburb), across from Target. I found out they were serving food on Friday and Saturday. The heart was racing with excitement.
I made plans, on Saturday, to visit the Everest Area Optimist Club one last time before the cooler weather hits, and as I expected, I was not disappointed by any means. That golden beer battered curd was melting in my mouth immediately, cooked to perfection. This is the curd to get guys. This is the curd of the Summer! A great beer battered cheese curd cannot be too greasy, which means they were not cooked long enough, and you should not be able to crunch the curd like a potato chip; that means they were cooked too long.
I experienced the perfect cheese curd, and Wisconsin folks know what I am talking about. The only thing I am going to gripe about is, they could have been hotter, temperature wise. They were definitely under a hot light, but they were still perfectly cooked. 9/10
