Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Jan 13, 2016 - grab your fork, call your friends and get ready to indulge in Canada’s truest Canadian dish: poutine!
Drooling commences February 1st-7th, when the fourth edition of La Poutine Week will be making its way to Toronto. So gather a group and get ready to hit over 20 restaurants who will—for one-week only—offer up the most unique andcreative culinary experience of poutine dishes—because what better way to feast on poutine, than with friends?
Developed by the masterminds behind Le Burger Week, Thierry Rassam & Na’eem Adam—La Poutine Week made its debut in 2012 in Montreal with 30 participating restaurants. In only four years, the festival participants have increased to include four national cities and five international countries with over 200 restaurants creating their best poutine.
Every year, the participating restaurants, which are carefully selected, each create a unique poutine dish consistent with their overall concept and cuisine. Poutine-lovers are then encouraged to vote which will be crowned the winner in one of the following categories – ’The Most Popular Poutine’, ’The Healthiest Poutine’, and ’The Most Original Poutine’. A panel of poutine-experts will crown a lucky participating restaurant with ’The Judge’s Choice’ title. The winners in each of these four categories will have guaranteed bragging rights regarding their top-quality poutine dish to all their fellow industry peers!
Get ready to savor The Cure’s version with pulled pork, a fried free-range egg and a dollop of hollandaise sauce; Baton Rouge’s dish is layered with buttery lobster chunks and bisque and Prohibition Gastrohouse takes it to the next level with duck confit, gravy and crackling. And these are just a few of the delicious dishes that will be available.
For the first time ever, customers will be able to download the ’La Poutine Week app’ – available in January 2016 on both iOS and Android. The app enables both—voting for your favorite poutine dish in the three above categories, as well as locating the participating restaurants – including details about their specialty poutine dish. Poutine-lovers will also be encouraged to try as many poutines as they can at each of these participating restaurants as they will gain participation points based on the number of poutines eaten. The winners will receive gift certificates provided from a variety of participating restaurants and even a Fitbit (www.fitbit.com) – as a reminder to get back on track once La Poutine Week is over!
