Montreal’s Great PoutineFest kicks off tomorrow

Jun 22 2016, 5:10 pm

You better kick your diet out the door as of tomorrow because poutine is taking over Old Montreal for the entire weekend.

For four indulgent days a fleet of 20 street food trucks run by Montreal’s top poutine chefs will be parked at the Jacques-Cartier Quay in Old Montreal offering Montrealers all the cheesy goodness it can (or can’t) handle.

With over 40 varieties of poutine being served, you can just imagine how creative some of the takes on this classic recipe will get. From a foie gras and duck poutine to the double bacon cheeseburger poutine, these chef’s are whipping up some crazy and yummy recipes.

If you can’t just pick one recipe, this year you will have the possibility to do a special tasting which includes samples of different 3 recipes from the chef of your choice.

The event will also feature live DJs, games, drinks, and much more to keep you entertained and energized all day.

To give you an idea of what to expect, we compiled some Instagram images from the festival to get you excited. Thank us later.
