Poutine Its not just for Canadians any more!

Fries topped with cheese, chili, bacon, garlic olive oil, etc. have been on menu’s in the U.S. for decades with new variations showing up every year. Very quietly for the past few years, as quietly as a Canadian cold air mass slipping down into the states, a Canadian staple from Quebec has taken hold carving out an identity of its own. Poutine… an ample helping of fresh made fries topped with cheese curds and a light vinegar tinged gravy seems here to stay.

American restaurateurs are doing what they do best and making Poutine their own by adjusting toppings to fit regional tastes. Cheeses ranging from house made mozzarella and feta style to the standard cheddar curds can be found along with a wide variation in gravies and other toppings. Combinations now involve duck, pulled pork, fried eggs, tomatoes, parsley, chives, onion, garlic and beer….yes beer.
