Poutine is a delicious concoction of French fried potatoes with cheese curds that are topped by brown gravy. Its exact origin is not known but people began serving it in the late 1950s in Quebec. Poutine is considered by many to be Canada’s national dish. Today it can be found everywhere.
Most Canadians believe Poutine is the best ever created in their country. It is served year round but is especially good in the coldest months.
Poutine has become so popular that Poutine Festivals and Poutine Feasts are now enjoyed all over Canada.
The 12th annual La Poutine Week returns to Vancouver with a change. This year it will run one week, from February 1 to February 7, 2023.
The Festival features poutine dishes submitted by restaurants and bars. It is the largest poutine festival in Canada with hundreds of participating restaurants. They will offer their best versions or wildest versions of poutine.
Some poutine dishes are made with tater tots and others are topped with butter chicken or duck. Poutines are topped with slow roasted pork, fresh vegetables, fresh fruit and even lobster. You can find vegetarian, vegan and gluten free poutines. There are lots of creative and indulgent takes on this cheesy dish.
