The week-long celebration of one of Canada's most beloved - and iconic - dishes returns next month to restaurants across the country, including right here in B.C.

La Poutine Week is set to return February 1-7, 2021, with its cavalcade of cheese, gravy and fries creations from coast to coast - including right here in Metro Vancouver.

The premise is pretty simple: Eat poutine during La Poutine Week and go online and vote for your favourites. 

For 2021, the fest's ninth consecutive year, La Poutine Week is all about getting that decadent dish in your hot little hands via take-out or delivery (or, where permitted, for dine-in).

While the event is wildly popular in its native Quebec, the fest has steadily expanded nationwide over the years with a few Metro Vancouver and B.C. restaurants signing up to take part in the friendly - and flavourful - competition. So far this year there are 17 different poutines available from nearly 30 participating restaurant locations in the following cities: Vancouver; New Westminster; North Vancouver; Surrey, Coquitlam; Port Coquitlam; and Abbotsford.

Tuck into poutine made with tots, or topped with things like butter chicken or dry-aged duck. Prawns, bacon, done up like donairs...there are plenty of indulgent and creative takes on the classic Canadian comfort dish.
