Poutine - the undiscovered comfort food

February 8, 2018


We have many people that will come in to the restaurant and ask "What's Poutine?" which is understandable, since I never heard of it until I worked for a three-week stint in northern Quebec Province of Canada.   What is less understandable is how reluctant people are at trying said poutine.   

Me: Do you like French Fries? 

Person: Yes!

Me: Do you like gravy?

Person: Yes, usually on my potatoes.

Me: (French fries are made of potatoes.)  Do you like cheese curds?

Person: I'm from Wisconsin, my blood is cheese curd positive. 

Me: Do you want to put three awesome things together and try poutine?

Person:  I'll have the cheeseburger with fries.


So, it's my mission to not have every person in Wisconsin actually know what poutine is, but even try it someday.   We just had a food booth with free poutine samples at the Belgium Chamber of Commerce Brew and Chew event on Saturday.  Since this was a very small commitment of only 4 oz ounces, I'd say about 2/3rd of the people actually tried it.  For those of you who have tried it, I don't need to promote it anymore, you already know it's really great comfort food.  Thanks for being awesome!
