Entertainment: For Ms. Manitoba


We have it on good authority that poutine is the national dish of Canada (Eastern Canada, says Ms. M, but we have friends in Vancouver who swear by it too).

Canadian visitors! We urge you to weigh in on the issue. Is poutine restricted to Eastern Canada? Or might those of us who long to visit Vancouver again luck out and get to taste it?

Come to think of it &mdash do we want to taste it?

Knight's Canadian Info Collection describes poutine at length. Checkidout!

You little devil! Actually a more common dish is tourtière -- a meat pie. But maybe that's among us oldsters ... maybe it's not so popular anymore. Not sure. My cousins have never made me one. My Grandpapa used to make crème au sucre. C'est bon!!

"Bon appetite, now you may eat!" as my 11 yr old says.

I've et tourtiere! I love it. It's like Cornish pasty. Or curry puffs. Or bobotie.

I'll take the meat pie.

If you go that way a Pastie is the stuff. See UP of MI

I didn't see any poutine when I was in Vancouver last, but then I did not go looking for it either.

Unlikely to see it in Vancouver ... where large numbers of Anglophones congregate. Go to Québec.
