Ottawa’s latest food festival: Poutine Fest!

By on November 13, 2013

Maple syrup, beaver tails and…what other food screams Canadian culture? I’ll give you a hint…it’s become a meal of epic proportions. Visions of melted cheese strings being pulled back and forth as your fork tries to nail down its next prey begins to wet your appetite. Golden fried fries mercilessly tangled by the impenetrable web of cheese – endlessly toying with your patience as you try to consume its victims all at once. It’s flavors are fueled by the potato gods, with their crispy rods that swim in a thick bone-hugging aromatic gravy pool  that has no other job other than to melt the fresh squeaky cheese curds and warm your insides giving you a feeling of artery-clogging rich utopia. Say hello to one of my ‘anytime, anyplace’ treat: POUTINE!!!
