Poutine, Poutine, Poutine!

Poutine is my favorite dish. Maybe because it goes so well with or after a few beers. Maybe is because it was the first thing I learnt to cook in college, or maybe because it’s so bad it’s good, I don’t know, but I’ve always had the Poutine bug for many years and haven’t been able to shake it.

For those of you that don’t know Poutine is a traditional Canadian dish that started in Quebec. Essentially it consists of french fries  topped with gravy and cheese curds (mouth watering?) If you grew up in Canada you have had this dish at least once, and if you are me you eat this dish far more than you should.

What I love about it is the dish is so simple, it gives you room to be creative. Why not go with one of my mantra’s: “Add Canadian bacon to everything” or literally spice it up, with some jalapenos, with Poutine, the sky’s the limit!

Yesterday I called Eric and asked him if he was up for some homemade Poutine to which he replied “You had me at homemade, I’m on my way”  When Eric arrived we spent most of our time talking about how different cooking smells link to different memories.

Poutine reminded him of his dad and all the Hockey games they went to in his youth, for me the smell reminded me of the amusement park food trucks and how the smell of candy mixed with Poutine would leave you dizzy with joy.

We watched Hockey, had a few beers and had some Poutine, for those that are uninitiated nothing does better with Poutine than some Hockey and beer. This time around I decided to add  Canadian bacon a dash of nutmeg (trust me) and some chilli on the side. It was so good Eric and I had two helpings and sported what we call “Poutine baby bumps” for the rest of the evening.



Welcome To Eating With Sean!

Hello there and welcome to Eating With Sean!

My name is Sean Adams, I am 38 and live in the world’s most beautiful city, Toronto, Canada. I’m a graphic designer for the online casino bonus website SlotPrince.com and Dutch casino website online casino paypal. I love my job, the online casino industry keeps me forever on my toes, so there is never a dull day.

Another passion of mine is food! I love cooking it and I love eating it, and I regularly host dinner parties. To me there is nothing greater than good food and plenty of beer shared with loved ones.  My dear friend, Eric Andersson, who is a regular attendee to my shindigs, said my dinner parties were so awesome (his words not mine) that I should start blogging about them, so here we are.

My favorite dish has to be Poutine, it’s a traditional Canadian dish so it’s a little bias on my part, but I challenge anyone to eat a plate of Poutine and not smile with delight. I’m not sure which genius thought to put gravy on fires, with cheese, but whoever he is, he deserves a medal!

I also love a good Pâté Chinois which is another Canadian dish, which is basically the same as the British Sheppard’s Pie, but with a little Canadian flavor. This is my favorite dish to cook, it takes a lot of artistry to get it right, but when you do it’s totally worth it.

One of the features of my dinner parities is beer. Some people are connoisseurs of wine, whiskey and scotch, well I’m a beer connoisseur. My friend David and I went on a beer tour in Quebec and sampled the top 100 beers in Canada, luckily though it wasn’t all on the same night. Beer plays a big part at my dinner parties, I ask guests not to bring wine, bring beer!

I’m looking forward to sharing my dinner party exploits with you, I may also share some top secret ingredients and tips I use to make my food delicious.
