Pronunciation: Peut-zhyn (never P00-teen -that would be the poor excuse for real Poutine, often served in Ontario)
A meal originating in the Eastern Townships of Quebec in the mid 20th century. Poutine tastes best when made from hand-cut potato fries, fresh Quebec curd cheese, and barbeque gravy.
Poutine can also be served in other ways:
Italienne: with tomato sauce rather than gravy
Galvaude: by adding green peas and chicken to the regular poutine
And many other variations.
I went to the fromagerie (cheese factory) for lunch and had a great poutine. The cheese was so fresh that it squeaked!
