|Poutine with Oscars sausage gravy
and Maplebrook Farm cheese curds.
No one knows exactly when this North Country dish drifted south across the border from Quebec. Perhaps we can thank the colonial era fur trappers for this adopted local favorite. Poutine is truck driver hearty and diner simple. It is as much a member of northern tier staples as the michigan, and is often consumed as a complement to that upcountry hot dog variant. If New York was a swing state, both presidential candidates would go out of their way to be filmed at South Pattsburgh’s Clare and Carl’s roadside stand, dressed in their finest flannel eating dripping mouthfuls of poutine, washing it down with cans of Genny cream.
