For anyone who doesn’t know, poutine is like the national dish of Quebec, if it were a nation (and don’t you dare tell them they aren’t). Cheese curds and gravy on fries – the quintessential drunk dish. It’s one of those things that can be made really, really badly and often is. It is an eye-rolling joke to the rest of Canada, but I will go to the mat for poutine now that Animal has elevated it to heavenly status.

The gravy was so rich — first they made a veal stock, then used that to make a Bordelaise, then used that to make a foie sauce. All that hard work definitely showed. The meat, which braised for hours and hours, was flavorful and falling apart. The minor change to a quality cheddar cheese made all the difference. And it almost seemed like they magically worked out a formula so that every single fry had the perfect bite of cheese and meat instead of falling all over the place in a big mess. Let’s give these boys a “Hell, yeah!”


BBQ Tacos



The grilled corn has cojita cheese as a topping.

The “salad” is watermelon, radish, tomato, basil, and pickle juice.

Smoked Salt


Caramelized Onions

  • Onions
  • Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • Sugar


  • Cut the desired amount of onion into thin strips.  (Onions will reduce by roughly 1/6 when cooked)
  • Heat a large pot and coat with olive oil (should be enough oil to coat onions well when they are stirred in)
  • Add onions and stir to coat with oil
  • Cover pot and allow to steam for 5 minutes
  • Stir in the salt and sugar
  • Uncover pot and reduce heat to 1/3 and continue to cook for roughly an hour (or until desired color is achieved)
  • Remove and serve, or refrigerate for later use.
