It has been said that the best dishes contain only 3 ingredients. This stands true for the classically Canadian dish known as poutine, which contains the holy trinity of french fries, cheese curds, and gravy and is truly one of the greatest dishes ever. Period. We here at Charcoal love poutine so much that we decided to celebrate the dish by holding a one night event in collaboration with Fort Gibraltar on Thursday September 18th, 2014 known as The Poutine Cup. The Poutine Cup is a culinary competition amongst 10 restaurants here in Winnipeg sponsored by Half Pints Brewery, Fresh Option Organic Delivery, Fort Gibraltar, Charcoal Collaborative and musical guests The Pink Socks! The way it works is you purchase a ticket which gives you unlimited poutine for the night, a beer tasting from Half Pints Brewery, the right to vote on the best poutine of the night and of course a chance to enjoy music by The Pink Socks. Tickets for the cup are available at Normandy Shop and Gurevich Fine Art. Look forward to seeing you there! With love, Charcoal.
