I’m smack dab in the middle of my Gen Con preparation week (which will likely bleed over into the next one). This means that whatever I post here is going to be very light in relevant content.
Since I can’t shut up and I hate silence, I put up little texts just to let you know I’m still there.
For a few weeks I’ve been pondering the sheer global aspect of the readership here.
As you may know, readers come from all over the world and that’s just so cool. Thinking that I could find someone to have a drink with in Tokyo, Nokia, Oslo, Paris, Jakarta, Sydney and pretty much all United States is mind blowing.
So to celebrate the globalness of the Minions believers in the Rule of Cool, I want to have an open and frank discussion about food!
More specifically our local, junky meals that we have a guilty love affair with but that are probably downright disgusting for other cultures.
I’ll start with our very own, Quebec Born Poutine!
Poutine (Quebec French pronunciation ) is a dish consisting of French fries topped with fresh cheese curds, covered with brown BBQ chicken gravy and sometimes other additional ingredients.  The freshness of the curds is important as it makes them soft in the warm fries, without completely melting. It is a quintessential Canadian comfort food, especially but not exclusively among Québécois.
Yup, French Fries (the greasier the better), Cheese Curds (Soft, unripened cheddar-type cheese) and BBQ Chicken Gravy.
Disgusting? Probably. Good? Hell yeah! A Gazillion calories… Our nutritionist Nazis keep reminding us that it’s got as much fat content as a block of butter.
So what’s your local disgustingly good meal? I want to hear from as many countries/states/counties as possible!
