    no corn. cheese curds! and chicken velouté sauce not gravy

    with optional bacon, montreal smoked meat, onions, sausage, chili and so forth.

    The dish originated in rural Quebec, Canada, in the late 1950s. Several Québécois communities claim to be the birthplace of poutine, including Drummondville (by Jean-Paul Roy in 1964),[7] Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, and Victoriaville.[citation needed] One often-cited tale is that of Fernand Lachance, from Warwick, Quebec, which claims that poutine was invented in 1957,[8] when a customer ordered fries while waiting for his cheese curds from the Kingsey cheese factory in Kingsey Falls (now in Warwick and owned by Saputo Incorporated). Lachance is said to have exclaimed ça va faire une maudite poutine ("it will make a damn mess"), hence the name. The sauce was allegedly added later, to keep the fries warm longer.

    Why have I not posted in this thread yet?
    Chips & cheese or chicken pakora do the trick. I'm trying quite hard to avoid drunk food at the mo though.

    MESH must be pretty drunk to be able to eat a whole hairy man in a box.

    what's a lahmacun? don't worry i'll ask google

    i made a smoked aubergine, red pepper and chilli mezze from my 4 turkish cookbook today, that was good stoned food.

    mr tea i'm so glad to read those stories, i have concoted vast meals in the past while off my head, often relatively elaborate dishes involving the oven for several hours at 3am. i used to have a 24 hour tesco garage at the end of my road, that was a haven/damnation in terms of encouraging elaborate recipes in the early hours. i'd get off the nightbus back from shoreditch right outside tooting tesco's and just spend my leftover cash on silly ingredients for that time of night.

    has anyone talked about chips and cheese at any length? that with garlic mayo and a bit of salt got me through uni, it was the late night food of choice in oxford for literally everyone, students or locals, but i swear it's a rarity elsewhere.

    i am stunned by parmo. i have got to try one of those. seriously i'd go on a late night culinary roadtrip of britain if anyone would subsidise me to do so.. where are the heritage lottery fund people when you need them?

    Also not to forget Sneaky Dee's, the mexican food pub and venue whose kitchen remains open until something like 4am, for a King's Crown Nachos. This takes some bravery:

    This is one reason among many why Canada is the worst country in the entire world

    Dan, I too am desparate to try a parmo. Maybe John Eden can drive us to Middlesborough in a van.

    Cheese and chipswise: when I lived in Oxford I found the whole populace very keen on latenight cheese snacks, to the point where doner kebabs often had cheese mixed in. Nice. But rather weird.

    I'm moving to a flat just off Green Lanes in Haringey this time next month. Obesity is imminent.

    Dan - how do you smoke an aubergeine? I've had a few goes at doing that tomato and aubergeine thing you get in turkish places but it never quite has the smoky flavour...

    Oh absolutely, I wasn't even drunk, just a few pints. But the beer had made me hungrier than I would have been anyway, so it tasted even better than normal. I was literally groaning with pleasure as I ate it.

    I once had a flat in Archway that was two minutes' walk from a Turkish bakery - used to get lahmacun'n'salad for lunch almost every day for a quid a pop. Amazing.
