Did someone say poutine?

Ah, poutine. I had a gloriously sloppy rendition one late night in Montreal, from a chain place. Reminded me of the gravy fries I used to eat down the Shore.

Cowgirl Hall of Fame on Hudson Street has Frito pie. I've never had a big enough appetite to try it, but it sounds like a fun thing to share with other people.

I spent Saturday cooking and I heard the show Dinner Party Download on NPR.  They interviewed Daniel Boulud and he had the following to say about Frito pie:


Brendan Francis Newnam: So you travel a lot. You have restaurants around the world. Do you have any guilty pleasure foods like the cronut? Like if you’re at the airport do you get nachos or cheeseburgers or something that?
Daniel Boulud: No nachos. The best guilty pleasure I had was, you know, when you take chili con carne, and you put it in a bag of Fritos?
BFN: Frito pie?
DB: Yeah, Frito pie. I mean to me, anytime, any day, a Frito pie.

He's got good taste.


Did I ever mention that one Fourth of July we were at a potluck party with people from the United Nations--my contribution was the makings of Frito pie, although the Fritos were in bulk: Fritos, chili (no beans), shredded cheese, maybe some sour cream? chopped onions? salsa? (it was quite a number of years ago). I was trying to show the international crowd how to pile everything on a plate, but I don't think a single person actually did put it all together. Oh well.
