    Well, that's interesting.  The only thing I use curds for is poutine, which is delish.  Grilled curds would probably be good with that as well.  Photo off the web - not sure I have a snap of my own.

    My local Costco sells them too, if anyone is looking that's a place to check.

    This summer while staying in the Dells I went to town on a huge bag of cheese curds they called "Squeeks," and Wisconsin sausage sticks. I thought they were the best things ever.

    Suffice it to say its best to spread that much gastric cement out over several days time.
    Gittin' there...

    I’m sure that @caliking could help you out with your gastric cement issue.

  • I originate from the land of poutine (Quebec, Canada) but cannot claim to be a huge fan. The one exception is an independent restaurant near my house that does its fries in beef fat. Fantastic.

    There’s a place in Ottawa near my sons in-laws that cooks theirs in duck fat. Will be giving it a try next time we visit up there.

    Le Foubrac in Gatineau, www.lefoubrac.com. My son and daughter in law have been and said it was pretty good overall, he said the poutine was amazing.

    Funnily enough, this is the place I was referring to. I thought it was beef fat that they used, but I could be wrong. We’ve been going here for years and their poutine is incredible!
  • I didn’t even know what a cheese curd was until I was 30. 

    I was training with some guys from Michigan and they were all worked up about some place we were eating had fried cheese curds on the menu. 

    I wish i had the convo recorded. 

    “So it’s cheese?...and they fry it?”

    ”you don’t get it!”

    ”what’s to get?!? It’s a fried cheese stick!”

    ”no man. It’s like heaven”

    (I take a bite). “It’s f***ing fried cheese, guys!”

    Maybe it is beef fat, but for some reason I’m thinking it’s duck. Either way I hear the poutine is amazing.

    There's a place in Portland, Maine that does fries and poutine in duck fat. Strangely enough, it's called Duckfat. Located at 43 Middle St., generally in the downtown area about halfway between the Shipyard Brewing Co. and Sebago Brewing. Well worth a visit.

    I should also mention that for something completely different, look for a cheese called Halloumi. It's a Greek cheese that is meant to be grilled. Just throw it on there like a piece of meat.

    We eat Halloumi at home regularly. Awesome cheese. Surprisingly enough, we recently found it within a barren grocery store while on vacation in Costa Rica.

    I spot exactly one fry in this photo. Gives you an idea of the magnitude of the toppings. 

    Overwhelming, almost.

    Nice!  Not like any poutine I've ever had, but I sure do want some.
