Perfectly timed for all the carb cravings caused by winter in Canada, the great French-Canadian classic is cause for celebration when La Poutine Week kicks off in Calgary and Edmonton the first week of February.

“Brought to you by the geniuses behind Le Burger Week, this year, the festival is being held across Canada at 240 restaurants,” including eights spots (so far) here in Calgary and Edmonton.

Among the participating restaurants already confirmed for the week-long celebration of fries, curds and gravy are:

The dining public will have a chance to eat and vote on their favourites before a winner is announced at the end of the week.
