October 15 is National Cheese Curd Day. Cheese Curds are small pieces of white or yellow cheddar cheese from Wisconsin. In many restaurants, they are deep-fried until golden brown and to the point where when biting into even a small piece, a pleasant crunch is felt.
Culver’s launched National Cheese Curd Day in 2015 to celebrate a tasty and light snack. The company itself opened and operated in Wisconsin, being a popular chain of fast food restaurants in the Midwest. Culver’s decided to set aside a whole day for people to enjoy the cheese treat and celebrate this holiday, buy or cook this dish on their own, treat their relatives and friends to them.
In honor of this day, we recall some Interesting facts:
- in the 1100s, in the text of the Celtic song “Visions of MacGonlannee” there was a mention of cheese curd;
- in 1840, Wisconsin becomes a place for the manufacture and production of cheese due to its rich agricultural land;
- by 1922, there were over 2800 cheese factories in Wisconsin;
- Because Cheese Curds are made from cheddar cheese, they come in either yellow or white.
