The moment has arrived: EatStreet’s ‘Curd Nerd’ reveals Wisconsin's best cheese curds
It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: EatStreet’s ‘Curd Nerd’ Chris Attaway has officially revealed Wisconsin’s best cheese curds, after a 11-day eating tour across America’s Dairyland.
A little backstory before the big reveal: Madison-based EatStreet chose Attaway
to find our state’s best curds, at least according to her taste buds.
Now, after 11 days, over 1,200 miles on the road, swinging by 37 restaurants and - milking one cow - Attaway published her top-10 stops for chowing on fried pieces of curdled milk, otherwise known as cheese curds.
*Spoiler alert: Madison’s own Tavernakaya and Avenue Club and Middleton’s Longtable Beer Cafe made the list!*
The Top 10 Cheese Curds:
(Fond du Lac)
(Wausau, Eau Claire, Appleton)
Attaway writes on her
that the judging is based on the following criteria, rated 1-5: flavor, texture, smell, squeakiness, presentation and finally sauce.
In her blog Attaway concludes, “Now that this crazy, cheesy ride has come to an end, I will sign off as your Curd Nerd.”
