Happy Canada Day to all our fellow Canucks! To celebrate our nation’s 145th birthday, we decided to put our own twist on a Canadian classic. Much like the Caesar, poutine is about as quintessentially Canadian as it gets. What this dish lacks in aesthetics it more than makes up for in taste. Our version is made with sweet potato fries, mushroom gravy, and fresh locally produced cheese curds from Little Qualicum Cheeseworks. We used a combination of crimini, shiitake, oyster, and portobello mushrooms, but we encourage you to use whatever varieties you have available at home. If you’re not a fan of the fungi, they can be easily strained out, keeping all their lovely earthy flavours in the gravy where they belong.
