Debate: Who is the inventor of poutine?
This is the debate in poutine circles. Who the hell invented the poutine recipe?
In my article on the origin of this magnificent dish, I had brought the three main hypotheses:
- In 1957, in Warwick, Fernand Lachance allegedly served a bag of French fries and cheeses following a customer’s request.
- In 1964, in Drummondville, Jean-Paul Roy reportedly served the famous French fries-sauce-cheese-curd trio, again according to a client’s idea. Jean-Paul Roy du Roy Jucep has since become the inventor of poutine.
- Founded in 1966, the restaurant La Petite Vache sold cheese curds. One day, a customer came to buy it with French fries. Sat down at his table and mixed everything.
So dear surfer? Who do you think is the real inventor of poutine?
