Forgive me, but I just keep reading it as "Poontang" but I think that's because I listened to so much Ted Nugent when I was a teen.

Here's a handy youtube video telling you how to pronounce it:

Gotcha. That spelling must be French. A number of silent consonants and more content than is implied simply by the amount of letters.

"Routine" but with a 'P'?
"Po-ew-teen"?
I could go on, but that would just add to the confusion.

i would say something like: poo-teen,
but that does not tell the specific quebec pronounciation of it.

I concur. Nothing I've had in the States compares to the poutine that Tom, J.P., Scott, and I had in Toronto a few years back. (Was it really a few years ago, already?)


It really was years ago... so that means Axiom is getting ready for their 35th? (Ahem, Amie !?)

To be honest, that was my one and only poutine experience. Have not found it down here in the hot steamy south; they do crawfish and gumbo down here.

Here's one way it could go:
  1. Freeze seasoned roux in french fry-shaped molds.
  2. Deep fry the roux pieces as you would frozen french fries.
  3. Pile fried roux on a plate, and top with (imported) cheese curds and piping hot creole red gravy.
