I get mine from Wisconsin... where there really fresh!!! (LOL)... There are places that will mail order and ship the same day the curds are bagged. I have recently gotten hooked on the garlic basil curds... Addictive!!!!

I think my reaction was pretty much the same when my friend asked me if I ever had poutine... I said, "Have I ever had what???"

Just looked at "Janet is Hungry." She makes it look awfully good compared to some of the other photos google came up with.

She says,

"The best Poutine will be made with thick, fresh cut french fries, real cheese curds (not grated mozzarella) and a beef veloute sauce. If you have never had Poutine, my advice is DO NOT make this recipe. Once you get a taste of this, you will be hooked like me."

I think I'll ignore her warning and try the recipe on her site!

Wisconsin Cheese Mart ships them fresh, & offers a variety of flavors. I gave the link to them in my previous post on this thread.

In the summer, we take all of our out of town guests to Le Chien Noir in Kingston, Ontario. They make a poutine with fresh cut fries, duck confit, fresh gravy & fresh cheese curds...it is to die for.

Oh my, Kingston's only a few hours away!!! Rob Feenie (when he was at Lumiere) and Martin Picard of APC in Montreal both do one with foie gras. I love the stuff!!!

Sounds terrific, though, I love me some cheese and potatoes and sauce. There's a place here in the 'burgh called the North Park Clubhouse Lounge that makes a platter of fries topped with shredded mozz, #10-can yellow cheese sauce, crumbled bacon, scallions and ranch dressing. God I love Pittsburgh!

Me too!!
I like the chilie cheese fries too. I'll have to check these out.

I am planning a trip to PEI this summer. I hope to experience this while traveling the area. Looks like a must have!

Poutine with foie gras sounds awesome. We may need to take a trip up to Montreal!

I'm late to the party and resurrecting an old thread. :) I'm from Canada, and yeah, poutine really is all that and then some. Not at all healthy, but man, when you're in heaven with that, who cares?

There are some variations on the theme that include chili and sour cream. Serious overkill. And most of the times I've had poutine, it's been a meal in itself. In case that wasn't really obvious that there's that much substance to it. :D
