Truth be told, if you need a demonstration that French chefs aren't the best in the world, the evidence is that Non-French Wisconsinites perfected the fried cheese curd. However Montreal's darling son, the Poutine, is another delectable application for the youngest of cheese.
If you don't know what a Poutine is, I feel bad for you son. It's a plate of French Fries piled high with cheese curds. It's then covered with a ladle of boiling hot brown gravy. It melts the cheese curds and squeezes into all of the nooks and crannies. NOM NOM NOM.
This is the classic, (in French that's la classique) It's your standard poutine, the likes of which have been around for decades. In recent years people have been getting more and more fancy with their poutine. At Au Pied du Cochon you can get it with a big slice of Foie Gras on top.
Unfortunately I didn't have time for that, but we did taste some interesting variations at La Banquise a 24 Hour greasy spoon which is well regarded as the best poutine in all of Montreal.
Luckily all of the food in Montreal wasn't as heavy as this meal. Mostly it was picnics in the parks and seafood. I really must go back ASAP!
