Wine Varietal: Chardonnay
The first time I had poutine was on a ski trip with friends in Canada. After a cold morning on the slopes with egos bruised, we took a well-deserved break in Whistler Village. Eating steaming hot fries doused in gravy with frozen fingers felt like it was the best meal we ever had. Later, when I created these burgers for my ski buddies, the first exclamation was “this tastes like poutine!” and despite a lack of bruised egos and cold, we felt like we were back in Whistler.
