What Is the National Dish of Canada?

The national dish of Canada is a food called poutine, which is a high-calorie creation that consists of fries, cheddar cheese curds and gravy. The Canadian dish was originally seen in the province of Quebec, but can be found all around Canada and has spread to the United Kingdom and United States.

Poutine can be found in small diners, pubs, hockey arenas and even fast food chains, such as McDonald’s, Burger King and Harvey’s. There are different variations of poutine, with some recipes using bacon, chicken or smoked meat as a topping. There are fancier versions of poutine that consist of truffles, caviar and different sauces or cheeses as well.
