The Infinite Possibilities of Poutine

Eating Around

Controversial, Quintessential Cuisine

To an outsider, debates about poutine are unexpected and bizarre. Isn’t poutine just cheese curds and French Fries topped with gravy? Traditionalists would say yes—and they’d add it’s a symbol of Québécois culture. But modernists argue that poutine is a classification of dish, like a soup or a stew, and therefore infinitely variable. One thing is clear: poutine is possibly the most controversial so-called “national dish” out there.

At Toronto’s Poutine Fest, May 24th to 26th, the variations on offer will include maple chili chicken, lobster-bacon, and Thai chicken. Sacrilege or genius? You be the judge.
