In 2010, during one of our trips to Wisconsin, we toured Hooks Cheese Company in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. We received the tourists' tour of cheese making and sampled their famous cheese. Their Colby cheese won 1st prize in an International Contest but our favorite was the 10-year-old cheddar. We also bought bags of cheese curds, those freshly made bits of cheese that separate during processing. Delicious.
We are reminded of our excursion because of an article in today's Philadelphia Inquirer titled "He's got a way with fried cheese curds."
