Remember, all cheese was once a curd! Before cheddar is formed into wheels of cheese, it consists of two parts: curds and whey (think cottage cheese). The little irregularly shaped morsels (curds) are separated from the liquid (whey) and continue on through the cheese making process, molded into wheels and aged. However, they are also eaten in this unprocessed, 100% natural state. Or even better, cheese curds are battered and fried.
Featured on the Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate, fried cheese curds have finally debuted in Philadelphia. Determined to make cheese curds a household name on the East Coast, The Cow and the Curd food truck will deliver fresh battered fried cheese curds throughout the streets of Philadelphia.
