Anyone experienced Poutine?

Had some today, at a place here in Vancouver.
What a comfort food.
So delicious.
Would like to make at home for the hubby but don't know about cheese curds. Where to buy, what are they, etc.

Here ya go. While I've never had cheese curds, I have them on my list to order from these folks. I've not personally received from them yet, but have sent gifts from them to others & gotten nothing but positive feedback.

Hey LEFSElover.... my friend Beth who lives on Vancouver Island told me about this and how good it is. It sounds crazy, but being of the thought 'don't knock it till you try it', I will wait to comment on it after I have tried it. She said it is a big deal in Canada. So am I gonna have to make it myself or is there actually some place in Texas I can find this stuff???

I love poutine! It's not really the "healthies" thing to eat, but every summer when I take my Canadian vacation/fishing trip, I usually eat it at every stop!

Order cheese curds. chances are the ones you will find locally are not fresh. there is a huge difference between fresh curds and ones that have set around.

A good cheese curd will actually squeak when you bite into it.

You say that like a true Quebecer!!!!! It's true, really fresh ones will actually squeak. I can get them here, but they are not very fresh, and quite expensive. I usually buy mine in Quebec, and freeze them. They do suffer a bit, but to me it's better than no poutine at all!

Ok, I have to ask, "What is Poutine?" I could google it, but why when I have you lovely folks to tell me?!

I may be off base here Jill... basically it is french fries with cheese and brown gravy on top. Correct me if I am wrong.

It sounded strange to me when I first heard about it, but my friend says "It's the bomb!"

You've got to be kidding me!?! Here I am thinking, "What is this fancy, exotic, French delicacy of which they speak?" And it's smothered fries!

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!
