In Quebec, we love our poutine so much we make it into ice cream

This is a Hipmunk guest post from Jodi Ettenberg

I’m a big fan of poutine, that goopy bowl of deliciousness that my province is known for. Poutine stands are popping up all over the place, from New York to Portland, Oregon to Bangkok. Made with fries (preferably double fried), cheese curds (preferably those that squeak when you chew them) and sauce brune (a chicken and beef gravy), the dish was a staple growing up in Montreal.

I’m back in town this summer and recently found a new version of poutine, one I hadn’t seen before. The ice cream version:

Made with vanilla soft-serve and served with mini marshmallows, caramel popcorn, chocolate wafer cookies, the concoction was topped with caramel syrup instead of gravy. While it looks like a sweet version of the classic, it’s actually a full-fledged dessert. And delicious.

Of course, one can’t get ice cream poutine without going for the real thing. Here’s the precursor to our dessert:

Perfect meal for a cold, rainy day.

Where to find it: Cantine Route 139, 32 Rue Principale Nord, Sutton, Quebec.
