Poutine is not only delicious but as Quebecois natives, it's part of our DNA. This rich and decadent dish traditionally consists of gravy, cheese curds, french fries and a ton of flavour. Throughout the years, a slew of variations have been made and for the past eight years, Poutine Week has been featuring some of the most outrageous and calorie-filled poutines in the country. And now, here we are, ready for Poutine Week 2020.

From February 1 until February 7, you can indulge in some killer eats as restaurants throughout Canada will be showcasing their creations. And this year, no flavour is off-limit.

Poutine Week has a total of 400 restaurants participating this year throughout Canada. Some of the craziest dishes include seafood, fried chicken and even desert poutines that will wow your taste buds.

This is the largest poutine festival in the entire world and since 2018, it has managed to raise over $100,000 for charity.

This week-long event is guaranteed to push culinary boundaries and create a friendly competition throughout the country.

Both die-hard poutine lovers and newcomers will be able to both discover new dishes and vote for their favourite poutine!
