Does Eating This Make Me A Canadian?
Poutine - An Alleged Delicacy
In case you don't, it's french fries smothered with brown gravy and cheese curds.
Sounds yummy...not. I tried to envision it and couldn't get past lumpy cheese curds falling off the fries. Doh! Apparently, they melt the curds.
I finally had it last week. We went to a rather nice place in downtown Calgary and they had poutine on the menu but with a fancy twist. The fries were fried in duck fat. It made them a little heartier but didn't taste that much different than those fried in oil.
I like french fries. I like brown gravy. I love cheese curds. I do not like poutine.
At least I can answer the question in the affirmative now so I got that going for me.
