This is why you flip your poutine upside down onto a plastic plate or whatever. That way, the cheese stays on the bottom, covered by the fries and gravy, whose heat will melt the cheese by the time you finally work down to it.

A very dear friend of mine is Canadian and offered to make some for party we were having a few months ago.


When he described it to me, I nearly wretched.


Needless to say, he did not make it for the party.

The-Brain: platedlizard: And guy? Yeah, it sucks that your daughter has epilepsy. She could have a seizure anywhere. What if she were at home boiling water for spaghetti? Who the hell would you sue then?

What if she was frying bacon naked?


That's the only way to fry bacon.

Oh yeah?

How about having your dick in a chick in Haiti at 5:14 p.m. on Jan. 12, 2010 ?


I'm sure someone was doing it.

I'm Canadian and yes, it sounds wretched. Much like the concepts of chicken fried steak or deep fried Mars bars. Poutine is actually pretty good though.

In Michigan we do french fries & gravy, and sometimes add cheese. We never called it poutine, though.

But we're practically Canadian here, anyway. If we had milk in bags, learned mandatory French, and had decent health care, you couldn't tell us apart.

Shostie: Wait. So KFC sells poutine in Canada?

Does Canadian Taco Bell sell beans and toast?


I've seen it at Burger King, and had Canadians there warn me not to bother ordering it.

I need to try a proper poutine one of these days.

Poutine is THE ULTIMATE food to eat after a night of drinking.

There is nothing more satisfying.

I think he is trying to argue that the gravy and molten cheese were unexpectedly or excessively hot. Which is similar to the famous McDonalds coffee woman ... the difference being he is not trying to get rich.

I do agree that he is not being reasonable ... molten cheese has the heat capacity of the frikken sun and there is nothing KFC can do about it. Something *he* should have taught his daughter when he was teaching her all the other stuff she needs to be extra careful around because of her condition. I assume they've had that discussion, right?

/think I'm gonna get me some poutine for dinner :)

The headline in ~2 years: customers sue over food poisoning due to incompletely-cooked food.

"I'm looking for someone to stand up and say, 'We're sorry Mr. Lakin, we're sorry Kendell. We want to make this right and hey everybody this food is hot.'"

NO SHIAT, SHERLOCK! Daddy...your a you're an idiot.

Funny ... it is almost exact what you just described except remove the chili and replace the fake cheese goo with real cheese curds.

Poutine is one of those things you should only have once a year ... but thoroughly enjoy it when you do.

How did we get this far without a picture of poutine?

For the record, I'm on the "yum, please give me poutine" side of the debate. Fark y'all poutine-haters

Are you in the UP? 'Cause I've spent decent amounts of time living/working all over the LP and don't remember ever seeing fries and gravy on a menu.

From what I've read on many a poutine Fark thread, cheese by itself won't cut it. Decent fresh cheese curds are needed.

That said, I'm practically Canadian myself, save decent health care and milk in bags. I know about as much French as some Ontario residents I've met do. Speaking of that, the 2nd episode of the Kids In The Hall miniseries is on CBC tonight. Yay!

/I like living on the border
 
2010-01-19 03:27:42 PM
it's not really the same as chips with cheese and gravy - close, but cheese curds are a very different texture than regular cheese.


Poutine is farking delicious!!!!

Did subby not RTFA? That is some fail right there. Where does it say anything about warning signs?

Congrats for pulling something out of your ass and getting it greenlit. I guess that's why I haven't had anything yet, I don't counterfeit facts.

It's not poutine unless it is fries, gravy, and curd. And not those KFC-style processed coated waxy fries either.

Let it go, man.

It's not even the first wildly inaccurate headline of the afternoon. C'est la vie.

I don't even remember what my first one was for. ... actually, I only vaguely remember my headline for 1/3. So if you're thinking a greenlight is gonna gonna be this awesome mind-blowing orgasmic experience that'll automatically make you a TFer and beloved by everyone here... yeah, no.

Jument: I'm Canadian and yes, it sounds wretched. Much like the concepts of chicken fried steak or deep fried Mars bars. Poutine is actually pretty good though.

I've never had poutine, but what part of it sounds bad to these Farkers? The french fries, the cheese, or the gravy? All these things are treats in their own right.

As for chicken-fried steak, while I've not had that either, I will ask you: when was the last time that you had something batter-dipped and fried that wasn't good? Fried dough, jalapeno poppers, fish?

The deep-fried candy bar is probably overdoing it. I've resisted the urge to try that at the fair.

Farking Canuck: I think he is trying to argue that the gravy and molten cheese were unexpectedly or excessively hot. Which is similar to the famous McDonalds coffee woman ... the difference being he is not trying to get rich.

The lady that got the 3rd degree burns from the coffee wasn't trying to get rich either. She just wanted someone to pay for her medical bills and re-working her life around the outrageous trauma of 3rd and 2nd degree burns on her genitals and legs.

One of the first things I learned a lot about courtesy of Fark was that case and I was quite surprised at the level of misdeed on the restaurant's part.

I also first learned about Poutine on Fark FWIW.

It's amazing to hear/read what foreign fast food places sell. Here in New Zealand most of them sell almostreal food. Burger King is the only one that sells plastic.

I understand entirely why the cigarettes are included in the meal deal, since I read this post:

Ishkur: Poutine is THE ULTIMATE food to eat after a night of drinking.

It all makes so much sense. Especially since many a night after drinking in college ended in a 24 hour diner, smoking, waiting for our chili-cheddar-fries to show up. Damn that sounds good now, too.

Her medical bills were $2.86 million?

First off..KFC's stuff is not REAL Poutine....

But yes I have had it many times! With the Spicy Big Crunch...

The article is wrong...The father says the location told him it arrives frozen & is microwaved... I think he made that up.

That is WRONG... They practically make it in front of you.. Its normal KFC fries put in a round container, they then open an individual serving size of cheese curds (plastic wrapped) on top & then put their gravy on top of that...Nothing microwaved..doesn't come 'pre made'...

Now REAL Poutine should be with fresh cut potatoes, a good beef gravey & fresh cheese curds!

HEAVEN!

Only one step down from BACON!

/ahhh Poutine with BACON is an orgasim!

Wise choice. I tried it once - it was horrid. Imagine a corn dog but instead of the wiener, you have a melted glob of chocolate inside.

I'd like to try some poutine. It is possible to make it myself, or do I really need to go to Canada?
 
2010-01-19 03:47:05 PM
Sounds like the father is a complete jackass and I do not feel bad for him or his daughter. I highly doubt he had no clue she suffered from epileptic seizure, and to let her go alone clearly shows he's a farking retard. Imagine if she had the seizure on the sidewalk and banged her head, whats next put up a sign that says "sidewalks are hard?".

shadowself: Her medical bills were $2.86 million?

Like I said, that McDonald's was very negligent in this case and her suffering profound. The restaurant un-wisely decided to blow off her claim against them for reasonable money. The ambulance chasers took up her case and made McD's into pariahs. They could have just looked at the facts that there had been repeated, substantiated claims against them for serving crazy-hot coffee (>200F) instead of just industry-standard hot (140-180F IIRC) to unsuspecting folks. That difference while seemingly small is expressed in your first "trial sip" of coffee burning you no matter how properly you sip it.

There's a lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of things going on inside old Duder's head on this case. It is worth the in-depth read.

Oh and for the record, my daughter racked up $26K in medical bills in one week, and that total included zero surgeries, skin grafts, trauma relief, invasive procedures, anesthesia, debilitation, or rehab. I'm just saying that sh*t gets expensive in a hurry.
