What is La Poutine Week?

Suppose this is the first time you’ve heard about La Poutine Week. In that case, you need to know that restaurants across the country, from the West Coast to the East Coast, will participate in the festival by marking up and showing their best versions of the traditional Canadian plate.

What is Poutine?

The word “Poutine” comes from a Québécois slang word meaning “mess.”!!!

The old story said that when a client ordered cheese curds with the fries, the restaurant owner exclaimed, “Ça va faire une maudite poutine” or “that will make a d**n mess.”

But now it becomes! 👇🏻

Poutine is a Canadian dish consisting of French fries and cheese curds. All slathered in gravy.

It was created in the 1950s and is most strongly associated with Quebec.

Etiquette Rules for Restaurants

The traditional poutine recipe

Traditional poutine comprises a simple trio of ingredients: French fries, gravy, and cheese curds.

Sound easy to make?

The quality of these ingredients(Fries, Cheese) and the overall implementation make the difference between a greasy, uninspiring mess and a bit of wonderfully indulgent convenience food.

HERE’SHERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE 11TH EDITION OF POUTINE WEEK:

1. It will be possible to treat yourself to poutines from the festival for two weeks, from February 1 to 14, 2023.

2. The festivities are wider than Montreal; oh no! There are also participating restaurants in Quebec City, Ottawa/Gatineau, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Regina, Calgary, Vancouver, and many more!

3. Poutine Week poses a significant challenge for restaurants. Each must create a unique (and completely gourmet) poutine for the occasion. Classic, creative, and daring, all the options are suitable for recreating one of our national dishes.

4. Festival-goers also have their share of work to do! Indeed, the organization asks its great tasters to share their experiences on social media and vote for their favorite poutine via the Poutine Week website.
