    Title: Classic Quebec Poutine
    Categories: Potatoes, Cheese, Sauces, Poultry, Snacks
    Yield: 1 Serving

    1 lg Idaho Russet or Prince
    - Edward Island potato,
    - peeled, in 3/8" batons
    4 oz Fresh cheddar curds

    MMMMM-----------------------VELOUTE SAUCE----------------------------
    1 qt Chicken stock
    2 oz Flour
    2 oz Oil
    2 ts Ground pepper
    2 ts Fresh-ground green pepper
    1 sm Onion; diced
    2 tb Balsamic vinegar

    This is a recipe for the Veloute sauce, which is the
    base for a poutine sauce. To make it into a poutine
    sauce, reduce it by a factor of 2-4 over medium heat.

    Bring the stock to a boil in a saucepan.

    Combine the fat and flour, cook over high heat,
    stirring until you have a pale roux (2-3 minutes).

    Add the 2 ts pepper to the roux before adding to the
    stock, for an extra-peppery sauce. Floor-sweeping
    pepper (the kind sold pre-ground, in bulk) is
    preferred by classicists.

    Add the fresh ground green peppercorns to the stock
    while reducing.

    Prior to adding the to stock, dice a small sweet onion
    into the saucepan, add the balsamic vinegar, and reduce.

    Whip the roux into the stock. Simmer (30-40 min),
    skimming the surface every 5-10 minutes. Strain the
    sauce through a chinois or strainer lined with
    cheesecloth. Salt and pepper to taste.

    Keep sauce hot on a side burner.

    Deep fry the potato batons in 375ºF/190ºC oil until
    golden brown on the outside and creamy, mealy on the
    inside. Drain.

    Put pommes frites into a shallow bowl and sprinkle
    fresh cheddar curds across the potatoes. Top with

    Let rest for three minutes or so to allow cheese,
    potatoes and gravy to meld and mingle. Salt & pepper
    to taste and enjoy.

    A Dirty Dave recipe, based on what I had in Southern
    Quebec while attending the 1999 Canadian Caper picnic
    in Hemmingford, PQ.
