Poutine
 
Ok so this thread has nothing to do with the Montreal Canadians.....But hopefully the mods will not move it as there is a long standing thread by the same titile and topic on the Carolina page of all places...........

Ok onto my question. I live in southern California now but years and years ago I lived in Montreal for one year (still have lots of relatives there). They don't sell poutine down here. They don't even know what it is.

In all the other places I lived I was able to buy poutine from somewhere but not down here.

Figured I would just learn to make it myself. Looked on the web. Didn't help much as there were no recipies for making the cheddar cheese curds. So I figured I would come to the Montreal board and ask for your best poutine recipies. Now I know in Quebec you can just buy the curds but you can't do that here so I would have to make them myslef.

And hopefully you help even though I am a Leaf fan.

Um... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheese_curds

Curds have to pretty much come from a cheese making facility.... but *in a pinch* you can always try mozzarella for a decent replica.

You didn't seriously see the 10 page thread about Poutine that's already open?

It's in the Carolina board. Is there one on the Montreal board? I wasn't aware there was. Plus no way I am going to read 30 odd pages to just find the one piece of information that I am looking for. Most of that thread is about random stuff anyway from what I can tell.

loudi94 08-02-2006 01:28 AM

C'mon change the Av and you'll be eating poutine in less than a week!!

Fine-don't change it. Buy the curds on ebay:

The curds are before the cheese is aged so it shouldn't be a problem. I know how to make Ricotta Cheese and can get curds that way. But I am told true poutine is made from Cheddar

Thanks for the links though.

maybe not 12h, but here...

"cheese curds are fresh, young cheddar cheese in the natural, random shape and form before being processed into blocks and aged. (Cheddar cheese is typically aged from 60 days to 4 years before being sold.) Unlike the aged variety, curds lose their desirable qualities if refrigerated or not eaten for a few days (the squeak disappears and they turn dry and salty). This means that even if you can find them in ordinary supermarkets, IMHO they are probably a few weeks old, and inedible or at least unremarkable."

and here's a link to make the curds (tho you really want to buy them somehow):

Are you open to acquiring a cow ? Magically, there will be a Curd Festival, yes you heard it here, in St.Alberts Ontraio in a few weeks. 3 days devoted to dairy squeaky goodness.

Thanks for the link. They are impossible to buy in Southern California. I have an extensive kitchen and experience. Whne I have time I prefer making it myself. It's often better then what I can buy.

PS The chikcs love a guy who can cook and dance among other things:D

Although puotine doesn't exactly fall into that catagory.......however......

I'm sure if you go to specialty stores you could find cheese curds. Maybe even at Trader Joe's

Not even at Trader Joe's. There is a burrito and taco stand on ever corer but ask someone what cheese curd is down here and they think its a movie, TV show, or some new band that they havne't seen yet.

aight west-islanders, loosers, fake poutine lovers.. the real golden poutine, the real 20$ tiper, is in St-Alexis-des-Monts ... Le Roi de la Poutine... hate yourself for never trying it, and if you tell your friends Ashton spicy is something special, then try to enjoy a prezel.

Going there this weekend, la Mecque de la Poutine... moi... tout-plein de sauce.. je bois bois le pot, igloo..
