Little Miss Muffet, sat on her tuffet, eating her curds and whey. We’ve all heard this nursery rhyme and yet few have stopped to ask what the heck Miss Muffet was eating. Today, we ditch the whey to talk cheese curds, as we introduce our newest MultiChef and AutoFry rebate partner, Curdtown!
We met Curdtown last year at IAAPA and instantly knew that we would make a great partnership. Their cheese curds are straight up one of the best tasting things that have ever graced our fryers and ovens. And we love that you can cook them in either application and still reach a delicious final product. This rebate is truly versatile and a great added benefit to those who purchase one of our ventless fryers and ovens.
Not sure what a cheese curd is?
Allow me share the process with you! Cheese curds start with fresh milk, in Curdtown’s case, fresh milk from Wisconsin cows. The milk is pasteurized, much like the process of creating cheese – but during this process a starter is added to the milk to encourage clotting. Once the milk is pasteurized you’re left with a mixture of curds and whey (yes, the stuff Miss Muffet was eating on a tuffet!)
The mixture is then cooked and pressed to extract the whey from the curds. Finally the curds get cut into little bite sized portions and coated in a golden panko-base breading that’s been seasoned to perfection. And of course with Curdtown, you can get the breading in two different seasonings depending on your preference.
Curdtown cheese curds are especially wonderful for a few distinct reasons. To start, Curdtown gets its cheese curds exclusively from Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery in Wisconsin who uses rBST free milk to make their curds. If you’re not familiar with the term, rBST is a growth hormone frequently given to cows to produce more milk than is considered normal. Meaning: The cows Curdtown works with are treated humanely. Next, the breading that Curdtown uses is a high-end Japanese panko breading, providing a delicious texture and crunch with each curd. Most importantly for cheese lovers: Curdtown cheese curds are 2/3 cheese and 1/3 breading, so you get more cheese packed into every bite. You can learn even more about Curdtown here!
