Feta Cheese is easier than you think to make. Shop around for the HVI culture I found the same one she recommends for half the price as the place she recommended. Same brand and everything. Do a search on "feta cheese culture".
Cheese Curds are sometimes breaded and deep fried especially in Wisconsin. Cheese curds are a main ingredient in Poutine, a Quebec dish in which cheese curds are served layered on top of french fries, and melting under steaming hot gravy.
