    I broke down and got back in the cooking game recently, working on the line at a barbecue shop near me in Gatineau, Québec. (working from home is nice, and I've been very glad to have the option available in these pandemic times but my goodness is it boring)

    I make dozens of poutines daily and am saddened by the fact that they all go out on flat boards. If ever there was a dish that was well situated in a plate with a rim, poutine is it.

    Also if any of you fellow anglophones care about saying it properly, it's less 'poo-teen', more 'poo-tin'

    I uh, have a story I'm pretty sure I've told around these parts, but back on US election night 2016 I was in Nashville for work

    We went to a hockey game so I could show my coworkers, mostly immigrants like myself (but from Germany, Dubai, India, etc) what an NHL game was like, and plus my hometeam of the Ottawa Senators were playing, so it was a real stars aligning kind of moment

    And then the election started going south, and then we stopped paying attention to the hockey game, and then the Sens couldn't even do me the favour of losing badly enough to get us free stuff, which was insult to injury

    We leave the arena pretty numb, and discover a pub across the street, and hey, there's poutine on the menu! So fuck it, while we're doing the Canadian Experience and I am also desperate for a taste of home, we decide to get it too

    So I ask the waitress for a pou-tihn, the regional pronunciation, and she flatly says to me "no, that's a Russian dictator, it's called poo-teen"

    And I, shocked, am like "no, I'm from Canada, it's actually pronounced poutine"

    "No, that's the *dictator*, it's poo-teen"

    And I am like "*No*, I am from the Quebec border, I live an hour from where they make the cheese, it's called poutine???"

    And she flatout walks away and puts in our order and it shows up

    Fries, then gravy, then feta cheese, then chives??? Insult to insult to injury?????

    God, what a terrible night

    Ugh, feta instead of curds, that is a paddling. That sounds like an inedible amount of salt when combined with gravy, even apart from the inauthenticity. Feta belongs in spanakopita, which I incidentally am currently trying to put a bug in the owner/chef's ear about trying as a special, with some smoked chicken in the filling.

    My personal poutine opinion is that the best meat topping is sliced sausage. Doesn't mix in and mess with the nice smooth consistency of the sauce like other meats do, and is hardy enough to be forkable with the fries and curds without falling apart in the process. Also gives me an excuse to throw on a drizzle of dijon mustard, which honestly improves pretty much anything.

    I have no idea how to pronounce "tihn". My brain is confused because englishe teen could be written as german tihn to have the same sound.

    It's very close to "tin", as in the metal. Come to think of it, it's like 90% "tin" and 10% "thin".

    Wait a minute, computers can play sounds. Google databanks to the rescue.

    I also thought it was pooteen

    And I will continue to say it that way because I am from Northern Ohio and don't need to lean into sounding more Canadian than my accent already does.

    Also also

    I think I would like it but I would need them to go easy on the cheese and gravy because Cello's poutine from the previous page looks like it would ruin my guts for several days.

    There's a place down the street that does pretty decent carne asada fries, but I'm seriously considering making my horrible bastardization of poutine today.

    There's a place by me that sells "super fries" which is a big ol' plate of french fries topped with carne asada, sour cream, cheese, guacamole and pico de gallo.

    It's pretty good! It's also like $12 and legitimately 6 pounds of food.

    If I could get a really nice pile of fries I would just go get a bunch of burritos from the local burrito guy and make my own.

    I should learn how to make nice French fries at home but we had a baby 3 weeks ago so basically that won’t be a realistic thing to put in the schedule until the mid 2030s or so.

    To make nice fries really demands a deep fryer which is one of the most inconvenient kitchen tools possible so I'm ok with leaving them the purview of commercial kitchens that will use one all day.

    You can deep fry pretty well in an enameled dutch oven, in my experience, although I've never tried fries.

    I love raisins and will defend most common and uncommon uses of them no matter how unloved by pop culture but even I can't imagine them working in that context.

    Poutine with chili. Chili's nice and hearty and spicy, but it really overpowers the gravy, essentially making inverted chili fries. Which is definitely good, but not what I was after.
