Poutine is such a Québecois thing that it's entrenched in their culture, musicians sing about it, every restaurant (including McDonalds) sells it, and there's even a festival to celebrate the awesomeness of poutine! But wait, now there's the World Poutine Eating Championship, and it's not located in Quebec!
The 1st annual World Poutine Eating Championship will be taking place in Toronto, Ontario at BMO Field on May 22, 2010 at Noon local time. Smoke's Poutinerie is sponsoring the event.
Many champion eaters from the Major League Eating will be there to eat as much poutine as physically possible! Sadly, residents of Quebec will not be allowed to compete in the competition as the Quebec contest laws are different than in the rest of Canada.
If you want to try to eat as much poutine as you possibly can, or if you think you can't handle much poutine and just want to guess how much poutine will be eaten, submit your entries at Smoke's Poutinerie's website!
