S’more Poutine may not be the typical way one enjoys poutine. However, the fact that I never knew what poutine was before last year’s Food Wine Conference, it’s not like I had a lifetime of poutine memories from which I could draw inspiration.
One thing that always inspires me to get busy in the kitchen is the Big Game coming up next weekend. Thanks to my Sunday Supper family we are all in for a fabulous party and one of the dishes to include at your party is S’more Poutine.
Traditionally, poutine is is a dish of French fries topped with gravy and cheese curds. At the 2015 Conference Idaho Potato Commission sponsored a poutine lunch that featured some less-than-traditional as well as traditional kinds of poutine. Needless to say, the experience left me looking forward to my next poutine dish.
Well, I was overjoyed to find out that the Food Wine Conference and Idaho Potato are holding a poutine contest. Even though poutine is classically a side dish or main dish, I am not one to back away from a challenge especially when the top prize is cash and a ticket to the Conference.
S’more Poutine starts with the star ingredient, Idaho potatoes. Before baking they are sliced and tossed with melted butter, cinnamon and brown sugar. The chocolate ganache is layered over the cooked potato slices. Rather than using cheese curds for my dessert poutine, I melted mascarpone cheese, with marshmallows and cream and then stirred in confectioners sugar, once the mixture was smooth.
It’s your choice whether you make a huge platter of overlapping S’more Poutines or whether you prefer to make individual S’more Poutines that family and friends can just pick up and eat. You can’t go wrong with either choice.
Also, if you are interested in attending a fantastic event, I highly recommend going to the Food Wine Conference this year. It will be held at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando from May 13 – May 15, 2016. Sunday Supper Movement has become part of my family and the time shared with them is always special. I treasure the terrific sessions along with decadent food and wine. Be sure to check out its website for more information.
