Well, i'm listening to the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting) and they just
announced that this Saturday Drummondville, outside Montreal, is
having a Festival de la Poutine - poutine = French fries covered
with gravy and topped with melting curd cheese - or these three
ingredients in some other order ;-)
I know that silly season on this list is "officially" over, now that
Pennsic's done, so sorry for annoying those who are not fans of
poutine (i've never had it so i can't take a position on the stuff).
Apparently putting cheese curds on fries developed around 1957, but
the exact spot is still under dispute. Then a short time later some
someone in Drummondville added "patate sauce".
The CBC was interviewing a professor about it - the interviewer
confessed she didn't care for poutine, finding it greasy and heavy.
Professor Routledge (sp?), the interviewee, said he could take her to
places in Montreal that would change her mind about poutine. So all
poutine is not created equal...
