Poutine – National Dish of Canada?!

I have a number of Canadian friends and they know that I am into cooking.  We trade barbs from time to time and half-jokingly I told one of them that I was considering a blog post called “Canadian Cuisine – Oxymoron or Not”.  That produced some quick retorts like, “You really think you’re funny, don’t you?!” and “I’m surprised you Americans can even spell cuisine”.  I knew that I had struck a nerve.
