French Canadian Delight

When I was 17, I spent the summer in Québec, paid for by the Canadian Government's Summer Language Bursary Program. I improved my French skills, which I have since lost almost completely, learned a lot about myself and my country, and discovered an amazing meal/treat:

Poutine. French Fries, beef gravy, and cheese curds. Looks disgusting, tastes amazing- like Canadian nachos. For a country that so often struggles with its identity, I bring you a truly Canadian food. Should you ever find yourself in Québec, the best can be found at Chez Ashton. (Add smoked meat, and it becomes a Dulton!)

I'm so glad you posted this. It looks so good that I want to make it right now. If only I could find cheese curds.

it's all about the curds- they should squeak between your teeth.
