Poutine is probably the best food on earth. Seriously. Give some to any person who’s never tried it before, and they’ll have to admit that poutine is probably the food of the gods (if the gods played hockey and wore plaid).
There’s even a “poutine porn” tumblr.
Where did poutine come from? This is arguable. But it looks like poutine as we know it was first served at a diner in Drummondville, Quebec in 1964.
So there you have it – happy 50th birthday to poutine!
