Poutine, the 'Canadian' dish


Recommended Posts

A short anecdote:

When I was visiting China in 2004, we made a detour to find a small cafe next to a University where many French Canadians were studying Chinese through an exchange program. There, I enjoyed a big bowl of poutine... eaten with chopsticks of course. One of the exchange students probably passed the recipe to a cook there and because the cafe was catering to expats, the dish found its way on the menu. Maybe poutine is the next sushi, hamburger, pizza or shawarma.
