Poutine is a delicacy originating from the Bois-Francs area, created and developed in the 50's. According to research by gourmets of the Bois-Francs area, poutine was created in the kitchen of a restaurant named "LUTIN QUI RIT" located in Warwick. The restaurant was operated by Fernand Lachance who used, in his original recipe, cheese curds made by FROMAGERIE DE KINGSEY which later became the FROMAGERIE COTE INC. de Warwick.
Poutine can be found and prepared in different styles, not only in the province of Quebec but everywhere around the world; New England, Toronto, Florida, Mexico and even in Venezuela. In short, everywhere Quebecers migrated.

Derivatives of the Poutine
What makes poutine so wonderful is that by changing or adding ingredients to poutine we get different kinds and flavours of poutines. For example, frozen french fries, spiral french fries or spicy french fries can do it. The gravy can also be changed, you can use BBQ gravy, pepper sauce or any of your favourite sauces. Italian poutine is served with spaghetti sauce or italian sauce. But remember, the most important ingredient in poutine is the cheese curds. They have to be fresh and smooth, it's the heart of the poutine. Remember that bad cheese makes bad poutine.
With time, people added other ingredients to the original recipe. The galvaude is poutine with pieces of chicken meat, peas and coleslaw are added. There are many ways to serve poutine, it's only a matter of using your imagination.
