Green County Cheese Days

Green County Cheese Days
Downtown, Monroe, WI
Date of Curd Tasting: 19SEP2014

To set the scene: It was the 100th anniversary of Green County Cheese Days, and we realized with shock and shame, that we had never attended this famed event. Since it is only every other year, and given the momentous hundy, it was a moral imperative to make it happen this year. We have many Monroe ties via both friends and family, and as we prepared for the weekend of chz, it was a pleasant surprise to find out that we are acquainted with both a Cheese Days Princess AND a Cheese Days Prince!

Upon arrival…
First stop is the chz curd ticket booth, whereupon you listen to the advice of the local you are with, and each member of your party promptly purchases enough tickets for 4 orders of curdz per person, in the hopes that this will be enough to last the whole weekend.

Chz Curd Tent
You are now ready for curdz, so go get in line at the curdz tent, sponsored by the Monroe Optimists Club. Don’t forget your golden ticket. Be patient. There are many Monrovians in the tent working tirelessly, assembly line style. It is worth the wait. This is why you visited the beer tent prior to obtaining your curdz. Enjoy the scene.

GOlden TicketBeer and TIcketsTent o curdzWorkerGet ready to live.
Crunchy, yet soft. Chewy, yet tender. Salty, yet sweet. Tasty beyond tasty. Fried to perfection. As fresh of a curd as can be found on the planet. Monroe is indeed the Chz Utopia of Wisconsin. NAY, the Cosmos! We were at ground zero of Curdlandia, and there was no need to run these curdz through our typical analytical battery of tests and evaluations. Elite. No question. These curdz will cheer you when you are at your lowest. You can sustain on nothing but these curdz for an entire weekend. Plus, they are guaranteed to woo women. They are simply magical.

The remainder of the Cheese Days extravaganza included a repeat of all of the above. Again. And. Again. Throw in a Pat McCurdy concert followed by a F2F chat with Pat, repeatedly petting every Swiss Mountain Dog and Saint Bernard in sight, and a late night visit to the famed Baumgartner’s, including watching them restock their chz case at 1 am to satistfy the still packed house, before we finally called it a night. We are wracking our brains for some sort of explanation as to why we had not ever attended Cheese Days before now. That travesty has been remedied. C’mon, 2016!!!!

Sportsman’s Bar & Grill

Sportsman’s Bar & Grill
506 1st Street, New Glarus WI
Date of Curd Tasting: 04OCT2013

Editor’s note: The date is correct! Somehow these curdz got lost for almost a year!

To set the scene: It was time to catch up with some old friends, and since they are local to the New Glarus area, they took us on a tour of their favorite hang outs: curdz stop at Sportsman’s, before Friday Night fish fry at The Glarner Stube, followed by Cards Against Humanity at Puempel’s Olde Tavern. We always listen to the locals, so pre-gaming for fish fry was on.

Smallish order, but only $4.00. Love those small town prices. However, they were not that enjoyable, which impacted their overall value. Giving everyone change in the form of $2 bills made us smile.

We wouldn’t journey all the way to New Glarus for these curdz, however we definitely would put Sportsman’s on our pub crawl list, given their impressive tap line up of New Glarus Brewery beers. The lovely array of beer beverages even convinced Ms. Sandra to order her first beer since she was 18 years old (P.S. Loved it.)! The curdz were just ok, and as our local pal Tara finally admitted…”They’re better when you’re drunk!”

Date of Curd Tasting: 18JUL2014

To set the scene: We were spending a long weekend on the tip of Door County, and as per our typical foodie vacation, on the hunt for some good eats. We hit up a local for a recommendation, and Adam of Clay Bay Pottery sent us to one of his bride’s favs for lunch – Door County Creamery. They have outdoor seating that is dog friendly, plus adorable goats out front to greet you. Could we, should we, with a goat? YES.

Date of Curd Tasting: 17JUL2014

To set the scene: We were on our usual pilgrimage to Door County for a long summer weekend, and since we were passing through the greater Green Bay area, decided to make a stop to grab some road trip necessities (ie. curdz). 4th generation owner, Kayla Scray had contacted us and invited us up to give em a try. We did a bit of research: Scray Cheese Curdz: served in the fried form at Lambeau, chz house located just down the road from where our good friend Cheryl grew up, and she is a big fan. Done and done.

And our heads were spinning at the thought of having them fried on the frozen tundra! We’ll be stopping by every time we pass through the area from now on! The whole family agreed:

OSS Madison

OSS Madison
910 Regent Street, Madison WI
Date of Curd Tasting: 07FEB2014

To set the scene: We needed a new pre-game destination before watching the Badger hockey team sweep the rodents, and had been informed by a reliable source that there was a new place downtown that we should to check out. Chz + beer + sausage? We were in. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted by manager Josh, who proceeded to give a low down on all things sahhhhsage: “You got yer traditional sahsage on the left, in the middle you got yer specialty sahsages based on the food we love to eat, and on the right is the open menu with guest sahsage.” We decided to start with an order of curds and a couple of brewskis while we took in the sahsage ambiance.

Menu description:
Fresh battered chz curds
We asked the waitress if she knew what dairy the curds came from. She made a guess, and Cheezaholic could tell she was making it up, and immediately called her out on it, stating “Really? I heard the owner was from Monroe, so I figured the curds would be from Monroe.” She immediately looked chagrined, and admitted that she too, was Monrovian, then scurried off to find the real answer. She quickly came back with this proud report: “They are Maple Leaf curds!” Ooooooooh, the same curds that our favorite Curd Girl uses. Excelllllleeeennnnntt.

Monrovians know chz. No doubt about it. A perfectly salty sensation. Fresh curdz fer sure, and the fastest fry in town. Chewy. Amazing. We wolfed that shit down in ~3 minutes, and arm wrestled over the last curd. As soon as our friends arrived, we made them place another order. Their opinion? “Pleasantly light and fluffy. It’s like my mouth is walking on air.” What? Order #3 placed to confirm.

These are some curds to contend with. Tied for the highest score to date. This place is going to kill it during football season. Once the word gets out, this place is going to kill it all year round. Our friendly waitress was already hitting the street (<10 degrees outside!!) with free curd samples, and drawing people in. And we haven’t even mentioned the awesome sausages yet (We both had Bahn Mi sausages – his was pork, hers was vegan)! What does OSS stand for? Old School Sausages? Overly Sausaged Stomach? Ohio State Sucks? Everything about this place is just plain cool. Oh Shit Superb.

Next Door Brewing Company

Next Door Brewing Company
2439 Atwood Avenue, Middleton WI
Date of Curd Tasting: 03JAN2014

To set the scene: Cheezaholic’s cousin, Little Jimmy was in town with his good friend Nickel to celebrate his birthday. Since Jimmy is a home brewing aficionado, a Birthday Beer Extravaganza was in order. Cheezaholic busted out her PhotoShop skilz, and mapped out a Brew Pub quest. A perfect opportunity to embark on the first curd review of the year!

Menu description:
Chz Curdz: Sassy Cow cheddar curds, WPA beer battered and served with chive dressing
Uh oh. Sassy Cow. One of our absolutely favorite local dairies – we do not buy milk from anyone else, but their curds…while delicious, are simply too large in our humble opinion. Bigger is not necessarily better [when it comes to a curd]. WPA Beer? We assumed that P = Pale, and A = Ale. But what to make of the W? Next Door Brewing Co isn’t telling. Wisconsin? Wild? Wahooooo?

Big Curd

Taste…3
As predicted, a plate o giant curds were placed in front of us. Cheezaholic noted a salt deficit, though this opinion was not shared by HappySchnapps. The large breading to chz ratio skewed our perception, and we were missing the chz flavor. Jimmy suddenly had an philosophical epiphany that made us all stop and go hmmmmmm: “When you overcook curds, you lose chz.” So wise, he is.

Just a tad over the requisite grzy line.

Breading…2.5
The breading was wayyyy too thick. However it was inconsistent, and we found two perfectly breaded curds. Multiple instances of chz bleed. Was the oil too hot? There was massive oozing. Hollow curd phenomenon was rampant, resulting in a curd graveyard remaining on our plates. The crunchy panko breading on the fish fritters and sausage balls that we also ordered would be a better option for the curds, though as a general rule Beer Batter is our curd preference. Clearly an execution issue – they need to thin out the batter prior to coating the curd. Duh.

Jimmy's Finger in the Ranch

Condiment…Ranch
Homemade with chives was a nice touch. Would be great on a schmalad.

Value…2.5
$8.50 for a not that large of an order. Upon seeing the price in the menu, Cheezaholic, being the delicate flower that she is, declared: “$8.50 is ridiculous. They’d better be f*^&ing good.” Sadly, when you do the math, pricey + not that great + smallish order = poor value. Were they worth a dollar per curd? NOPE.

Total…12
Once again, the giant size of the Sassy Cow curd overpowered the whole curd experience. They should be small enough to dip it and pop the whole thing in your mouth, in one chzy bite. Luckily, our spirits could not be dampened by the mediocre curds, thanks to the Birthday Boy continually entertaining us with his comments referencing the subzero weather, and Next Door Brewing’s smooth brown ale, not to mention his stellar Connect Four skilz. “I’ll lick a pole for a beer…You can’t go wrong with a brown nut…If I have a brown nut, I’m calling my mom.” Next Door Brewing is a cool neighborhood joint – it will definitely be on the next Birthday Beer Extravaganza agenda. The curds? Not so much.

Middleton Sport Bowl

Middleton Sport Bowl
6815 University Avenue, Middleton WI
Date of Curd Tasting: 20DEC2013

To set the scene: We were craving fish fry, and had The Dorf Haus on our minds, but friend XTC was skeered of the icy roads, and Schnapps was skeered of Cheezaholic’s vow to wear her German dirndl dress. We had received a recommendation for curdz in a hometown joint, so decided to head to the local bowling alley.  We sat down, looked around, and immediately felt young and hip thanks to the clientele, plus the Loverboy cranking on the juke box. We were ready for some curdz.

Menu description:
Hand Battered Chz Curdz. $5.50
Schnapps ordered the curdz, but waffled on the questioning, so Chz jumped in and asked the waiter if he knew which dairy the curdz came from. “No, I don’t.” was his short answer. Chz proceeded to stare him down until he added: “I could try to find out”. XTC chimed in: “Yes, you should REALLY try to find out.” We all giggled nervously. He returned with this perplexing report: “We get a big block and cut them here. We don’t have a big block at the moment, so I can’t tell where they are from.” They cut the chz? What? Every homegrown Wisconsinite knows that this is not how a true curd is born!

Square "Curdz"

Square “Curdz”

Taste…4
Upon first sight, they were just as the waiter described. Perfectly uniform, giant cubes of chz. They tasted good…clearly a quality chz, but they definitely didn’t taste like curdz. Very chewy…representative of a fully matured chz, vs a tender morsel of chz luv that is a curd. A heated debate ensued. Should we immediately terminate the review? Should we add an asterix to the score? Why did they have to be so damn yummy? We decided to persevere.

Color…orange
The classic.

Inside the Block

Greaziness….3.5
A bit over the grzy line. Schnapps postulated that this was in part due to the natural grzy nature of a giant block of cheddah.

Condiment…Ranch
Thin and tasty, with good “curd” coating consistency.

Value…3.5
$5.50 for a good size order. We are always willing to pay for fried chz in any form, but questioned the false advertising (ie. claim of a curd), and felt a bit swindled.

Total…15
These. Are. Not. Curdz. The irritation level increased when they cut a Billy Squier song right in the middle to play Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree. As curdz purists, we would not order these “curdz” again. However, we would eat them if you ordered them, scoffing and ridiculing loudly the entire time, as we shovel them in.

To set the scene: Cheezaholic and HappySchnapps are food cart crazies. Chz even has a food cart app on her phone, just in case she might find herself in Portland, OR. When we learned about a Chz Curd Food Cart, it was as if our love child had just been born. We were overcome with joy and excitement. We first read about Curd Girl here, and then began tracking her movements via the Let’s Eat Out Madison food cart group. It took us all summer to catch up with her, but finally our chz curd food cart destiny was at hand.

It was unanimous. No question. The best curdz that we have had in Madison, hands down. The numbers don’t lie. The Curd Girl knows curdz. After a difficult summer in the life of the Chz-n-Schnapps family, this experience gave us hope for a bright future. We began to smile once again, and continue to do so every time we think of the Curd Girl. The memory of her chzy little masterpieces of love will get us through the long, cold WI winter.

WI Chz Curdfest 2013

WI Chz Curdfest 2013
The Duck Pond aka Warner Park – Home of the Madison Mallards
2920 N. Sherman Ave
Madison, WI 53704
Date of curdorama: 24AUG2013

Curdfest Poster FINALTo set the scene: The first ever Curdfest to be held in our own home town! How could we not attend? In the name of science, we had to do our duty. We arrived a bit late, so quickly grabbed beers (great selection at the Duck Pond!) and got down to business. It became clear that we would not have time to properly review all curdz present, so we quickly made the decision to concentrate on fried curdz only. We opted for recording first impressions, rather than full scores, deferring complete reviews to restaurant visits as warranted, since a mass produced curd is not completely representative of the sit down version. Luckily, we met up with our friends the Chamberseses, who helped us through each portion, so we could more efficiently go from curd to curd.

The Rigby

The Rigby

The Rigby Pub
119 East Main Street, Madison WI
$5 order

We’ve never been to the Rigby, so we were intrigued. They looked good, but oddly tasted like chicken tenders. Served with ranch and Buffalo ranch. Made to order, which resulted in a crispy, yummy curd. Worth further investigation.  Chz came from Ellwsorth Chz. Solid start.

Tipsy Cow

Tipsy Cow

Tipsy Cow
102 King Street, Madison
$3 order

After a previous negative experience with Tipsy Cow Curdz, we decided that this was an excellent opportunity to give them another chance. Smallish curdz. Spotted cow battered. Tasty – nice and salty, but as per previous experience, greazy and soggy.

Liliana's

Liliana’s

Liliana’s
2951 Triverton Pike, Fitchburg WI
$3 for a small order, $8 for a large order

The engaging head chef of Liliana’s was frying up the goodness, and convinced us to purchase 2 small orders after describing the homemade Cajun spice mix that he added to the batter. Made to order, which resulted in a delicious, light and fluffy curd. Not an overwhelming amount of spice flavor, allowing the chz to shine. We were impressed, and started to plan a Liliana’s visit in the near future.

The Avenue

The Avenue Bar
1128 East Washington Avenue, Madison

What. The. Hells. We’ve enjoyed the Avenue curdz many times, and these are not they. Solid, old tasting curdz. Mealy mouth feel. Cornmealy. Not at all like the restaurant version, though we haven’t been there since they were bought out by Food Fight. Hopefully this is not their new version of the curd!!!!!

Riverside Foods

Who? A distributor of some sort? Dunno. Who cares, let’s eat em. They had orange or white curdz, we chose white. They were sitting under a heat lamp. Definite salt deficit. They were Syscoesque. Not impressive, plus we were hitting our curd maximum density, so that didn’t help.

Curdfest Summary
All in all, it was quite a pleasant way to spend a summer afternoon! Good friends, good beer, more curdz than we could eat, plus a bouncy house! A successful inaugural curdfest event, in our professional opinion. The curd eating contest was a nice touch. Liliana’s for sure had our vote for the best curdz of the day, and prompted Cheezaholic to shake the hand of the head chef to show her appreciation. Next year, we will plan to get there at curdoff, when they drop the first curd into the frier, so we can run the entire curd gauntlet, as we were born to do.

Date of Curd Tasting: 29JUN2013

To set the scene: We had just completed a relaxing, yet full of adventure, family vacation in Door County with our two darling doggies, and were beginning our long road trip back to MadTown. We were in need of road trip supplies, and could no longer resist the giant Renard’s Mouse pointing us toward our next chz destiny.

Total Score…20
What? A perfect score! A chzcurds.com first!!! They excelled in every category. Plus it was the little things that put them over the top. Packed the same day. Orange or white options. Everyone in the shop had a smile on their face. They cut open our bag, and gave us a twist tie for the road. Every bar in Door County (and we visited quite a few of them), seemed to offer Renard’s Fried Curdz on their menus. For some reason we didn’t try any, but after these amazing fresh curdz, it is now a moral imperative!!
