On Saturday, Richard and I ventured north to Drummondville, QC, to attend the Festival de la Poutine. I got an email from the fellow who runs the site mapoutine.ca who said we should meet for lunch at Chez Louis and share a poutine together before heading to the Festival.
And so we met up with the poutine-loving Anthony (who recognized us from this blog), who was wearing his signature poutine t-shirt...
...and clicking away madly to record each and every poutine he saw.
His lovely partner Sandy also had a poutine although I suspect she's not as huge a fan of the stuff as Anthony is.
We did share some poutine and some talk about judging a good poutine and a lot of general poutine talk.
Okay, Anthony. How do you do it? Thin and still eating your poutine to the very last drop.
Nice to meet you, Anthony! Good times.
And the poutine? The sauce was tomatoe-y and sweet. (I read somewhere that that is a specialty of the Drummondville region.) I kind of liked it. The fries were crispy and crinkle-cut. We all agreed there weren't enough curds. 4 out of a possible 5 curds.
