Looking for Cheese Curds
I want to make poutine for a Canada Day vs. USA Day party I am having next week. Canada Day is July 1st, so to compromise, I am having the party on July 2nd! Does anyone know a reliable source for cheese curds? I know that Whole Foods on Cambridge Street will sometimes have a couple of bags, but not consistently. Last year someone found one bag at Trader Joe's in Cambridge. Does anyone know where I will have the most luck finding them?
Any other sources for Canadian type items (ketchup flavored potato chips for example) are also appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Actually, it's the easiest thing in the world to make your own, if you can't find them to buy.
I do it all the time, for making fresh paneer cheese, or cottage cheese.
I second Galleygirl. I used to order the Maplebrook Farm's cheddar bites from my Whole Foods store (Cambridge/River Street). These are not as good and as fresh and salty as those you find in Quebec but that is probably your best option in Boston.
I doubt you will find a good local source of Canadian products in Boston, at least none of my fellow Canadian citizens have found one. There is CanadianFavourite.com which I have used in the past and I have been pretty happy with their service.
Ketchup flavored potato chips:
For your poutine (I might have some in the pantry if that is an emergency):
If you deep fry your own fries, try duck fat......amazing. The tastiest fries ever.
Hope that helps,
