One of the great things about festivals are the various food stalls with good variety of cuisine.
For the first time, I’ve tried Poutine. Poutine is a dish originating in Quebec, Canada, made with french fries, topped with a light brown gravy-like sauce and cheese curds.
The folks from The Poutinerie (check them our on twitter @ThePoutinerie ) were providing this lovely dish at the festival, and I must say they were one of the few stalls that caught my eye.
They serve two types of Poutine, the original for £5.00 which is chips, cheesecurd and gravy. And the other one that I ordered for £7.00 – Roast chicken and bacon Poutine, chips, cheesecurd, chicken, bacon and gravy… I must say that this really hit the spot for me.. I can imagine many variations of this dish.. Can’t wait to experiment in a few months!
Right, unfortunately I am going to do my atkins/ketogenic diet and cut off sugars and carbs.. I have put on a bit of weight the past few months.. So more potatoes or homemade pasta for me!
Wish me luck guys!!
