We’re going to Whistler Canada this weekend to go skiing. All reports show that the skiing is terrible right now, but there may be snow Friday night. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Regardless, I’m looking forward to poutine.
Poutine is the national comfort food of Quebec. It’s french fries with gravy and cheese curds melted on top. Poutine is also rather fashionable in Seattle these days though I haven’t been able to find any to my liking. In Montreal, the gravy used for poutine is of veal or beef stock. Last time I was at Whistler, the gravy seemed to be made with chicken or turkey stock. I’m sure it’s sacriligious that I prefer the turkey gravy to the beef, but there it is.
Here is Seattle you can find poutine at Skillet. I have to admit that I’m not very partial to their variety, but my husband loves it.
