LMAO! the word may sound disgusting, but I have to tell you it tastes like heaven! However, your arteries might clog up a bit afterwards. I noticed that Americans don't seem to use gravy on their french fries the way Canadians do so I can see how the addition of melted cheese might gross you out even further.

Oh, great. Let's try again, if I wind up with a double post, please excuse.

As someone with a father, aunts and uncles with thick Quebecoise accents, I can verify that tourtiere is super-great buffet food. My Memere didn't cook at all; Pepere did, but very basic. I resurrected tourtiere myself (and everyone loves it better than the originals). It sounds, though, as if she's English-Canadian rather than French, and all pretty much eat as we do, with one exception. Every English-Canadian I've met LOVES BLOODY CAESARS. Bloody Mary made with Clamato. When we were on the road we actually met a couple who travelled with cases of Clamato because they weren't sure it was available in the 'states. Hubby has never said to an English-Canadian acquaintance, "How about a bloody Caesar?" without getting a huge smile.

OK, I'm about to hit post. Wish me luck!

Hey, don't knock Poutine till you've tried it! (Just as a word to the wise, when visiting Toronto, get said poutine from a resturant that ISN'T McDonalds! )

Actually, we do it in Texas and Louisiana... We call 'em SWAMP FRIES! No curds though... Cheddar cheese here! Add diced tomatoes and onions if you're feeling saucy!

Sorry for the triple post... Just like to keep my subjects straight!

No worries Rob. Like to see a thread get some activity. Don't you love it when you recognize a dish by another name. I love to know all the names for the foods I eat.

May I suggest you just make the things you know best, and let HER teach YOU about the things she likes at home?
When I was a homesick yankee girl in Louisiana, my husband's aunt made me "Yankee Pot Roast" for my birthday. It was out-of-this world delicious, but it was no more yankee than I am Cajun.
