Chef Anthony makes an apple pie poutine

This might sound strange but Chef Anthony Fischer from the Pittsburg High School hit the KOAM studio to make apple pie poutine. Some have called poutine the unofficial national dish of Canada and it consists of French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy, but not Chef Anthony’s sweet and fruity variation. His is an apple pie variation that’s quick and easy to make and super delicious. Here’s what you need to make the crust:

  • 1 cup flour
  • Half a cup of shortening
  • Half a tsp. of salt
  • Add enough cold water so you can beat it – sticky and thick is the goal!
  • Roll out the mixture on a flour board

Now comes the apple pie poutine filling:

  • Peel and chop 8 apple
  • Add 8 tsp. of cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Three quarter cup of cornstarch and
  • Half cup water

Follow along with Chef Anthony’s complete interview start to finish to see how easy and delicious this reimagined poutine recipe really is!

Chef Anthony Fischer is a culinary instructor at the Pittsburg High School.
