Canadian favorites to share with the world!

Bailey Woodean
I have been a freelance writer for more than 4 years, a mom for more than 2 years, and a wife for just under a year. I am currently a student in a cooking and catering program with the intention of expanding my knowledge of the culinary business. I then plan to take this knowledge to properly write about and critique restaurants and food. Writing to you from Niagara Falls, NY, thanks for joining me on the ride!

Must Read

Living in Niagara Falls, New York I am just a border crossing away from our neighbors in the great white north. In fact, most of my husband’s family is from Canada and my husband was even born there! It’s a beautiful country that is hardly in the media at all because they just live their lives and keep to themselves. So, I wanted to celebrate them and their most well-known national dishes!

Poutine
Ingredients
  • 6 to 8 large Yukon gold potatoes, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more for frying
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon whole green peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese curds
Instructions
  1. Slice the potatoes lengthwise, about 1/4 inch thick. Stack the slices and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick sticks (or cut the potatoes into fries using a french fry cutter). Place in a large bowl filled with cold water and let sit at least 1 hour, or up to 24 hours for extra-crispy fries. Drain well and pat dry or spin dry in a salad spinner.
  2. Make the gravy: Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic and saute until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken and beef stock, ketchup, vinegar, peppercorns, and Worcestershire sauce and bring to a boil.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the flour and make a roux, stirring until slightly browned 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk the stock mixture into the roux and simmer until reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Season the gravy with salt and pepper and keep warm.
  4. Line a baking sheet with a double layer of paper towels. Heat 2 to 3 inches vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F (or use a deep fryer). Fry the potatoes in small batches until they whitish-yellow, about 8 minutes. Remove with a strainer and drain on the paper towels. Bring the oil temperature to 375 degrees F over high heat. Fry the potatoes in batches again until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain on fresh paper towels. Salt and pepper the fries while hot. Strain the gravy.
  5. Put the fries in shallow dishes; top with the cheese curds and gravy.
