That’s poutine in its simplest, purest form. But when it comes this Canadian favorite, you can build a better mousetrap.
And for one week in April, you’ll have a chance to try several inventive poutines across town featuring chef-driven extras like smoked gravy, onion gravy and crispy pig ears—with proceeds from each dish you share (or hog) going directly to Providence Cancer Center, where local immunotherapy researchers are teaching our own immune systems to target and destroy cancer cells.
#PoutineforthePeople—yes, we’ve hashtagged it—runs April 20 through April 25, and our partners have dreamt up some dreamy deep-fried winners. Stop by any of the spots below to order up a plate of fries, gravy and curds and help researcher continue the charge against a disease that affects us all.
