Poutine is Acadian for "mushy mess" and is best for your clogged arteries. Although a serving once in a while does not a sinner make.
By the way there is also a correct way to pronounce it as well. Phonetically it is "peu-tin" and not "pou-teen."
The potatoes must be hand-cut and fried in lard and not oil ,or any other politically-correct oils, because they will spoil the unique flavour. You must use fresh cheddar cheese curds or "squeaky cheese"...no substitutions.
The curds are placed on top of the hot fries and smothered in hot gravy for that melt in your mouth goodness.
My recipe for Poutine.......
1. purchase fries and gravy at "Shady Rest"
2. purchase curds at Paul's Fruit & Produce
3. ASSEMBLE!!... or drive to Penticton to Jeffrey's Fryzz. They have my vote for the best ever!!
A true recipe can actually be found on the above web site.
At least tonight when I had my fast food I added a salad!
Try it...your arteries will love you....
