Home Eat & Drink New Yorker's Poutine Recipe

New Yorker's Poutine Recipe

Introduce Canadian cuisine to your home-cooked meals this year. Started as fast food only at Québécois eateries, this recipe has made its way below the border, right on track to Utah. The combination of french fries with a light-gravy sauce and cheese curds have created what Canadians like to call “poutine.” Choose the New Yorker’s Chef Will Pliler way and add chicken gravy, duck confit, chunks of cheddar cheese or a sunny-side up egg.

Poutine Recipe from Will Pliler, Executive Chef/General Manager, New Yorker Restaurant:


This Quebecois favorite is usually prepared with cheese curds. I make this version of poutine with locally produced Beehive White Cheddar.

For the Chicken Gravy:

Add to a sauce pan over medium-low heat 2 T. Butter and 2 T. flour, heat while stirring constantly until the roux is slightly brown but not burned. There should be no brown flecks. To the pan, add 2 cups homemade chicken broth, whisk until sauce is thickened (about 10 minutes), set aside, keeping warm.

For the Duck Confit, you can use a commercially produced duck confit or make your own using your favorite recipe. Use the meat pulled from 1 duck leg and thigh per serving, add the meat to a non-stick skillet over medium heat, brown slightly on both sides. The meat should be a little crispy.

To assemble the Poutine:

Cook about 8 ounces per serving of your favorite French fry recipe in a deep fryer until crisp and golden brown, divide among oven proof plates, top with about ½ cup shredded white cheddar per plate, add plates to a preheated 375 degree oven until the cheese is slightly melted (about 2 minutes), remove from the oven top with the crispy duck confit, ½ cup of the chicken gravy per plate, and garnish with chopped parsley if desired.

Also can be topped with a sunny-side-up egg if desired.

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
