National Poutine Day celebrates a popular Canadian dish that consists of french fries, cheese curds, and brown gravy.
The creation of poutine is credited to Jean-Paul Roy who served it in his restaurant, Le Roy Jucep, in 1964. There is actually a copyright certificate issued by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. Poutine has become so popular in Canada that it has been declared their national food.
Canadians are not the only ones who love poutine. In New York and New Jersey, some restaurants have their own mix of fries, gravy, and cheese called disco fries. When TB and Miranda go to their favorite restaurant in Concord, MA, they almost always order the beef poutine, which is made with pot roast and is out of this world delicious.
