Culver’s will serve poutine out of its food truck at Madison’s Curd Fest on Saturday | Restaurants

Culver’s first food truck is in the middle of a 17-city “From Wisconsin With Love” national tour, that began May 11 in Indianapolis.

The 22-foot truck wrapped in a dairy farm scene, from the fast-food chain based in Prairie du Sac, will be at Curd Fest from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Breese Stevens Field, 917 E. Mifflin St., serving poutine. Admission is free.

The dish will sell for $5 as a special Curd Fest offering, Culver’s spokesperson Alison Demmer said from a food truck stop Friday in Chicago.

She said profits will be donated to Wisconsin FFA, an organization that prepares young people for careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture.

The poutine will have Culver’s fried cheese curds on a bed of crinkle-cut fries drizzled with demi-glace and cheddar cheese sauce, and topped with herbs and cotija cheese.

The truck has been giving out free curds and custard on a tour that has visited cities in Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Ohio.

Upcoming stops are planned for Detroit; Milwaukee; Kansas City, Missouri; Salt Lake City; and Denver.

“It’s been really fun to see not only our loyal guests who know and love Culver’s, but we’re able to, on the tour, intercept with new guests who have maybe never tried our frozen custard before,” Demmer said.
