Don't hate me. I didn't say it. It was the headline in my morning paper. With the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia fast approaching, the food section ran an article on something about which Americans are completely ignorant ~ Canadian Food. An argument could be made, and often is, that Americans are ignorant about all things Canadian, but we'll save that for another time. Today, the food.
French fries and cheese curds, smothered in gravy. This is poutine. There is even a website with reviews, recipes and a history of this Canadian original.
I gotta tell you, fries, cheese, and gravy sounds just disgusting. Fries, cheese, and chili on the other hand...
In answer to the rhetorical headline, I think the answer must be yes. Canadian food is fit for Olympians. And, only Olympians. Food like this could kill a mere mortal.
