Sorta Irish Poutine

Why sorta Irish poutine? Whiskey, lamb, and potatoes of course. What is more Irish than that?Classic cheese curds come to the party along with mint and basil. Some chicken stock and we have a hearty party food or dinner. The whiskey brings out the lamb, and who doesn’t like cheese fries? I hope you like it.
