If you must know, it was in the name of international relations.
pou·tine pronounced po͞oˈtēn/
noun [chiefly Canadian]: a dish of French fries covered with brown gravy and cheese curds.
We would also like to throw the word “heavenly” in there and point out the fact that true Canadians eat this dish at least once a week, typically between the hours of 1:00 and 4:00 AM. We get it; the concept of this dish may not sound the most appetizing...but you truly can’t knock it till you try it. Which is why we got Gwyneth Paltrow to do just that. It only made sense considering Goop has now officially launched in Canada. While we were at it, we also introduced her to a plethora of other Canadian snacks and delicacies, from ketchup chips (to die for), Coffee Crisp (to die for), Caesars (to die for), and maple leaf cream cookies (also to die for). Naturally we made sure to wear Toronto Maple Leaf jerseys the whole time and work some true Canadian sayings into the convo. Warning: Watching this video may lead to you begging someone you know in Canada to send you a box of all of the above.
