Marie-Josée Duquette, the Communications, Cultural, and Francophone Affair Attachée at the Québec Government Office, was on hand to provide a short history of poutine and some fun facts. For example, did you know that poutine was served at the first state dinner between Barak Obama and Justin Trudeau in 2016? And the McPoutine served by McDonald's has less calories than the Big Mac?!
Enjoy photos below from our evening and if you are still hankering for some poutine, don't forget to check out the poutine festivals in Lewiston, Maine, New Hampshire, and the poutine contest at the Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket, Rhode Island!
Miam ! Miam !
