What you'll do

Instagram: poutineexperience

This experience will allow you to learn how to cook an authentic Quebec poutine!

The course takes place in an intimate atmosphere, 5 guests at most.

1. After having read and taken a seat in the kitchen, I would first offer you a Quebec microbrewery beer, a juice or a liqueur of your choice. Together, we will cook homemade fries. Under my supervision, everyone will have their work station to cut their own potatoes into fries.

2. While you are cutting your potatoes, I would take this opportunity to tell you the very special story of Quebec poutine (no one knows the exact origin of poutine!).

3. While cooking the fries, I will show you how to make an authentic poutine sauce. The sauce is sometimes overlooked in a poutine, however, it is what makes it possible to differentiate a good poutine from a bad one (yes, a poutine can be bad if it is poorly prepared!).

4. Finally, we will go into the dining room to taste the poutines that we have cooked together. We will take this opportunity to discuss a multitude of subjects. As a native of the city, I could recommend activities for the rest of your trip.

We look forward to meeting you around a poutine!
Other things to note

The course takes place about 10 minutes from Old Quebec. It is easy to get there by city bus.

Have you ever tried this typical Quebec dish: poutine, but it did not meet your expectations? Don't worry, I'm here to offer you THE best poutine in Quebec!

I am a native of Quebec City and I am passionate about poutine and cooking! This passion for cooking naturally took me to work in several restaurants in Quebec City where I could experience a plurality of variety of poutines. For almost 4 years, I have worked as a sous-chef in a small restaurant of Quebecois-Italian inspiration. My cooking experience allowed me to concoct a very unique classic poutine recipe. My goal is simple, to pass on my passion for cooking, but above all, Quebec poutine!

What a fun experience! It was amazing to get this private cooking class on a classic Québécois food - one that we love so much! You will taste the difference and be proud of the part you have in creating the dish! We had a great time!

We had a WONDERFUL time (and left even more in love with poutine than we already were)! Sammy was a gracious, personable host with deep knowledge and a warm personality. We learned a ton and ate VERY well.

We had such a great time learning more about poutine and cooking with Sammy! It was great to have such a fun, low key experience in a small group.

This experience was fun & informative. We felt as though we learned something about Canadian culture, as well as how to prepare the “national dish”.

My boyfriend and I signed up for the cooking class with Sammy excited to learn about poutine. We thought it was going to be a good time but even with good expectations we were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed every moment of this experience. We felt right at home as Sammy invited us in and offered us some local beers, while explaining his poutine recipe. We were part of the cooking steps all while having a conversation about poutine and it's history. After the poutine was finished and we had a chance to taste it, Sammy gave us some suggestions of other places to visit on our visit to Quebec City. We would definitely recommend this experience if you're visiting Quebec City.

The poutine experience was unique and exciting. It provided a 'taste' of Quebec that will not be forgotten. From learning how to cook the perfect french fry to learning the origins of poutine, the class added an element of culture to our adventure in Quebec City that we will pass along to all of our friends. All we know for sure is, we want more poutine!
