Canada Canada Explained - Poutine

Fries. Cheese curd. Brown gravy. That's really all there is to say. You know you want one.

Why go this route this year, why not just bump a bunch of old SA threads?

The origin of the word is a french dude saying 'that would be a big mess'. Not an exact translation.

Please weigh in on :

fancy poutine ( with fancy ingredients like brie, gouda, spanish ham,steak, foie gras, etc)

VS

traditional poutine

I'm definitely a fan of the fancy poutines.
Lots of haute cuisine dishes started as peasant fare that was enhanced.

Traditionalists frown upon that but I'm all for it!
Montreal smoked meat* poutine is also awesome!


* the good montreal smoked meat is from 2 or 3 famous jewish delis in montreal (Schwartz's, Main's and another one).
The smoked meat from other establishments is usually garbage so beware.
