The Poutine Truck is feeding hungry Los Angelinos with Quebecois comfort food

James MacKinnon, Emmy winning make-up artist, provides this French Canadian comfort food which is called Poutine – French fries, gravy, and cheese curds to the street of Los Angeles. It’s a simple dish and an excellent concept for a food truck. During a trip to the Canadian Winter Olympics, James happened upon poutine. He waited in over two hours in line on a cold winter day. He liked is so much he stood in line again while eating the first serving. The idea of the truck was born while waiting and eating in this line. After 2 years, James purchased a truck and began researching. He connected with his old friend, Debbie Lee (finalist on The Next Food Network Star, Season 5), to serve as the consulting chef ala Poutine.

Recently, I was invited to The Poutine FOUR BRIX Wine Pairing Party at the City Sip Wine Bar in Los Angeles. Let’s check out what was on the menu.
