The Wisconsin-style fried cheese curds are back at Artscape. You can find them at Stella Jeanne's Festival Foods booth, which is near the Lyric theater on Mount Royal Avenue but facing the Mount Royal Station stage.
Above is the Baltimore Sun cheese-curd finder.
Curds are a by-product of the cheese-making process. They have a consistency most people describe as squeaky. And the perfect thing to do with them -- fry them. The folks that make them are based in Philadelphia but the wife, who is expecting a child any day now, is from the Midwest, where cheese curds are huge. You can't find these treats too many places outside of Wisconsin, except at state fairs.
