Mmmmm.... poutine!

It is, apparently, the 50th anniversary of one of Canada's only domestic delicacies: the fatty, tasty, wholly nutrition-free poutine.

Poutine, that is, poo-tsssihn, is one of my personal favourite foods. No trip across the border to my native Quebec is complete without indulging in at least one. It's as much an institution as Cal's Pizza -- on the 117 in Val Morin, Schwartz', or, St-Viateur bagels.

To date, though, in 8 years living in Ontario, I have yet to find anywhere that makes a poutine that comes even close to a true Quebec poutine. Surely it isn't that hard to make!

Fries, cheese curds and brown gravy, sounds good to me.
