And for any of you who want to pronounce "poutine" like a French Canadian...you pronounce it "poo-teh." That way, when you're actually in Quebec and you say "Poutin Mon Amis" you'll sound like a pro!!!

Bon Appetit!!

I think we both know that's not how it's pronounced, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Are you sure about that? My two years of high school French tell me that the "n" is pronounced: "poo-TEEN." If there was no "e" on the end, then it would be "poo-TEH," with a nasal sound on the second syllable.

I have read a lot of sites that pronounce it poo-tsin - here's how I pronounce it - din-ur

Quebecers slang it up a bit. That's where I have heard it.
