The Fast Foodie Web Series: Episode 6 … Hello Canada! Ever Try Poutine?

What is poutine you ask? A dish consisting of French fries topped with cheese curds and hot gravy.  It’s a Canadian thing.  The latest in the Fast Foodie Series has Jerry Duppa hunting this grub down…and failing at human connections.

OK, now that you are thoroughly saddened by the pathetic attempts of the Fast Foodie.  Let’s get a more in depth look into this favorite from the Great White North.

  1. available in portland, OR, but the best I have had is in Hong Kong!

  2. Justin says:

    I wish American restaurants offered poutine. I’ve written restaurant chains, but they just laugh at me! How hard is this to make guys?

  3. Canadian Jill says:

    Poutine is amazing. I live in the U.S. now, and I haven’t been able to find it in my area. So sad!

  4. J. Owen says:

    Anything with a name sounding like “Poutine” is bad.
    Anything involving “curds” of anything in 2010 is again…bad.

    I’ll take your word for it Jill from Canada….do you have it with Molson Ice?

    For those who might be disgusted about us Aussies eating a ‘beef marrow’ spread, let me reassure you that Vegimite isn’t made of that. It’s a yeast extract and I think the reporter might have been confusing it with Bovril which is something the English love!

    Now I want some Poutine down under!

    Justin, as long as you have access to fresh cheese curds, poutine (pronounced closer to “poo-TSIN” than “poo-TEEN”) isn’t that difficult to make. Fries, gravy, and curds. The gravy is a type of brown gravy and a lot of diners in Quebec use a mix sadly, St. Hubert’s. I’ve tried the brown gravy mix from McCormick in the States and it’s so-so, passable.

    But really, you just make up a brown gravy (pork-based preferably), deep-fry some fries, and throw in some cheese curds.

    So I was googling my own name because that’s just how I am (sad, isn’t it?) and found your kind words about The Fast Foodie. Thanks so much!
    Have a great night.
