A Traditional Quebecois Sensation
Take one bowl of french fries, the greasier the better. Add a couple
of tablespoons of cheddar cheese curds. Then smother with canned Franco-American [tm] beef gravy.
Its perfectly respectable to serve it alone as a meal, however most
truck drivers would want a couple of dogs on the side, and maybe a can
of coke to wash it down with.
Each fry is to be held with a fork and lovingly caressed. Dip it in some
sauce, hold it up, examine it closely, let the sauce drip off. Admire it
for what it is.
Chew it slowly to enjoy the flavour. Mix it up a bit, perhaps a couple
of fries, then a curd. Or have fun: have 2 or 3 curds in a row. Poutine
is supposed to be a fun meal.
However, if its cold, then consume it quickly. Dont wait for the grease
