According to the LCBO Food and Drink Magazine (spring 2005) – ‘Global Trendspotting’,
Canada is following the way of the world in its food trends. There is a move towards a simpler, healthier way of eating. […] This recipe [for ‘French Fries with Poutine’] gives a taste of truly Canadian tapas. […] Served with foie gras, goat cheese and gravy […] There is never any left – you can double the quantity and still have none left.
What??? Since when is ‘French fries with poutine’* a simpler, healthier way of eating? Alternatively, what were we eating before? I shudder to think.
* poutine:n.[pu - tēn'] Québecois delicacy comprised of French fried potatoes (greasier the better) covered in cheese curds and beef gravy.
