In case you don't know what the heck poutine is, it's something every Canadian probably grew up eating.  Surprisingly or maybe not that surprising(given our proximity to Canada), poutine can be found on a lot of restaurant menus in the Treasure Valley.  Poutine is basically french fries, covered in beef gravy or au jus and cheese curds.  Fattening yes, tasty, heck yes.

The dish originated in the French province of Quebec in a restaurant called Le Lutin in the 1950's.  "Poutine" is Quebec slang for "a mess".  So you're eating a mess, but it taste so good, or at least I think so.
