A truly Canadian dish called poutine originated from the Bois-Francs area of the province of Quebec in the 1950s. The basic recipe consists of french fries, cheese curds, and gravy. Apparently poutine was created in the kitchen of a restaurant named “Lutinqui rit” (the laughing elf) located in Warwick, operated by Fernand Lachance.
