Cake poutine coming to the CNE this year

We all know about breakfast poutine, AYCE poutine, Japanese poutine and all sorts of fusion poutine, but leave it to the CNE to top them all with the introduction of cake poutine as part of 2015's so-crazy-it-might-just-kill-you food offerings.

While the CNE is waiting until Wednesday to reveal the rest of this year's food line-up, we learned that pastry chefs Alicia Cardoso and Natasha Falcioni with help from a group at Humber College have been busy figuring out what happens when cake meets poutine. Two weeks ago they figured it out with their first successful cake poutine creation.

Thankfully, no potatoes, cheese curds or gravy go into the making of cake poutine. Fries are made from a rich vanilla bean infused cake and lathered in warm chocolate, caramel or strawberry sauce. Bacon bits, marshmallows, strawberries and maple syrup are just some of the toppings.

Look for cake poutine at the Gourmet Kitchen section, located inside the Direct Energy building, hall "A", booth #1137. Each poutine will come in one size and cost $5, tax included.
