Has anyone ever written much on the roadfood cuisine of Quebec? It is something I would like to know more about.

    Mmmmmmm, loves that poutine. I had plenty of it when I vacationed in Montreal a couple of years ago. Nowhere else outside of Quebec does it better.

    BTW, if you visit Montreal, try their smoked meat sandwiches. There are plenty of delis in the area that serve this up. Its like a New York style pastrami only done up differently. The best place for this sandwich is Scwartz's in the heart of downtown (strangely enough, they don't serve poutine there!).

      4 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and soaked
      vegetable oil for frying
      1 cup cheddar cheese curds

      3 tbsp butter
      3 tbsp flour
      1½ cups beef stock
      2 tbsp soy sauce
      1 tsp dried parsley
      fresh cracked pepper
      Tabasco sauce to taste


      1. To make gravy, melt butter in deep skillet. Once liquid, mix flour until it reaches a nice semi-solid consistency. Add beef stock and continue to mix. Add soy sauce and spices and let simmer at medium-high for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit aside.

      2. Pour enough oil to deep fry the potatoes into a suitable pot. Let it heat on high. Meanwhile, slice potatoes into fries. Once oil is hot, fry them until golden brown. Let dry on a paper towel.

      3. To serve, start by reheating the gravy. To a serving bowl add a layer of fries followed by a generous layer of curds. Repeat to make another fries/curds layer. Finally, pour piping hot gravy over it all.

But if its as you say, little lumps/pieces of cheddarish substance, I can see how that would work :)

            the curds melt from the hot fries and gravy and become melted and stringy

              I love poutine. Can't get it here, so I pine for it.

                I became a fan of Poutine when I visited Nova Scotia, PEI and the rest of Canada. I really enjoy a gravy with my fries.

                  Ive never had the pleasure but have seen it on the food channel. Im not sure what the chedder cheese curd is like but fries with brown gravy and melted velveeta or grated chedder is fantastic.

                    I had this for the first time in Quebec a few years ago. Maybe I didn't find the best place for poutine, but they really didn't turn my head. They were ok, but not spectacular. The ones I had just had cheese and gravy. When you say curd, do you mean like cottage cheese curds? Sounds more interresting with curds IMHO. May need to explore this dish a bit more!
