The Cow and The Curd


A Wisconsin culinary staple, cheese curds are as common and indispensable in the Midwest as the cheesesteak is in Philadelphia. Despite their ranking as one of the world’s most craved regional foods, cheese curds are relatively unknown in places without cheese factories…Until now. The Cow and The Curd brings this midwest flavor right to your neighborhood.
