- John 1/26/07: "Enjoying the show on Potato. As a transplanted Canadian who grew up in Quebec with the ubiquitous chip shops on every corner. The one thing I miss is REAL FRESH CUT FRENCH FRIES (patate Frites). In fact the first thing our family almost always does when crossing the border to Canada is to head to the closest chip shop. Quebec created a wonderful concoction called a poutine, which is fresh cut fries with cheese curds and sauce. Delicious but no doubt goes straight to the coronaries (good reason to drink more red wine). I've been constantly in search of real fries in Northern WI where I live. There are 3 places the make fresh cut fries, A bright yellow chip shop in Ashland (next to the Mcdonalds that serves YUCK econsitituted mash potates which they call french fries), The Log Cabin Restaurant in Crandon and Hoggie Doggies in Minocqua. Sadly none serve poutine..... enjoy your show."
