’Tis Dining Month, the tastiest time of year! This means we’re dishing up fun and fascinating food content throughout October. Dig in, Milwaukee! OnMilwaukee Dining Month is served up by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and Wollersheim Winery & Distillery.

Ever wonder what comprises the best fried cheese curds? Is it the cheese? The breading? The sauce? All of the above? This week on FoodCrush we’re getting down to business with cheese curd expert, Sam Buschman (AKA the “Cheese Queen”), the woman behind the brand Wisconsin Cheese Please.

During our chat, we’ll discuss how Buschman’s cheese curd obsession began, the criteria she uses to review cheese curds all over the State of Wisconsin and the lessons she’s learned along the way. She also shares her top five favorite curds (so far) just in time for National Cheese Curd Day (Oct. 15).
