I was thinking that it would be great to get at least one forum game of something at the weekend - we’re going to be there mid afternoon on Friday (although the forecast is worrying) and leave on Sunday lunchtime. We’re going out for a curry on Friday night.
The GAME web app has a big game of Heat at 3pm on Friday that we’ve jumped on.
I’m not sure how many we are in total (@Whistle_Pig and me are both plus 1)?
As a resident Canadian… no. I mean… yes, but also no.
“Traditional” poutine is fries (chips), beef gravy, cheese curds (ideally squeaky), and that’s it. Full stop.
If you want the proper French Canadian Poutine Experience™, then you should also say disparaging things about the English, and perhaps be oppressed slightly but claim you are oppressed heavily.
That stated, the poutine they’re serving (served? I haven’t gotten further down the thread yet) sounds delicious, and I love atypical poutines far more than Traditional Poutine. But, come on, if you’re going to call it Traditional… do it traditionally? It would be like me saying “Traditional English Fish and Chips!” and have it be salmon with a side of sweet potato waffle-cut fries.
My favourite “poutine” (air quotes required) is Butter Chicken Poutine: fries smothered in good Butter Chicken, and that’s it. Super good, albeit not really poutine, but still delicious and who cares what you call it. Pulled Pork Poutine is a solid second, and then Buffalo Chicken Poutine (breaded deep-fried chicken hacked up, tossed in hot sauce and butter, and then put on fries, chicken gravy, and cheese curds).
