Recipe Of The Month – April

Recipe of the Month-




All our die-hard Holee Cow fans will recognise this following Poutine recipe from our restaurant’s specials board. Chef Kenny has made this Canadian classic at Holee Cow a couple of times, but he’s kindly given another one of his treasured recipes to us for April’s Recipe of the Month.

For those who still aren’t sure what poutine is about yet… Poutine is a dish of french fries, topped with cheese curds and then drizzled with gravy. It’s truuuly a thing of beauty. 

In Canada, poutine is in abundance. But here in Cheltenham, the dish is a rarity. Getting in perfect is a fine art, but this recipe should get you pretty close.

Holee Cow’s fries are a force to be reckoned with, and ideally they’d be made in a fryer if you have one. However, oven cooked chips will produce a good portion of poutine as an alternative.
