this is what i found on wikipedia
"It is a mixture of french fries with fresh cheese curds, covered with hot gravy. The curds' freshness is most important as it makes them soft in the warm fries, without completely melting. When the curds are really fresh they will often squeak between the teeth. Poutine with melted cheese is not regarded as 'genuine poutine', nor is poutine made with shredded cheese or cheese slices."
man I remember every poutine I"ve had cheese is almost always sumwhat melted...
anyone ever have 'genuine poutine'?
