Canadian Classic

Move over chili cheese fries, the new trend in fries is on its way! The French-Canadian dish Poutine has reached peak popularity in Canada and is now coming down to the U.S. It’s a simple dish made up of French fries, cheese curds and brown gravy. Legend dates Poutine’s birth back to 1957 in Warwick where Fernand Lachance combined French fries and cheese curds at the request of a truck driver who wanted something fast. Lachance then proclaimed, “Ca va faire maudite poutine!” which translates to “It will make a damn mess!” Poutine can be found from fast food restaurants to fine dining restaurants. It was only a matter a time before it started jumping borders!
