From a press release:
“Poutinerie by Air Canada offers global twists on the iconic Canadian dish – poutine. Proceeds from the Pop-Up will be donated to a local Washington charity.
“The #AirCanadaFliesThere initiative is designed to connect Washington DC travelers and their spirit of adventure to iconic destinations in Canada, Asia and Europe,” said Lisa Pierce, Air Canada Senior Director of US Sales. “As we showcase Air Canada’s flight offerings from the US Capital region, we hope to inspire everyone to explore these remarkable destinations, and beyond. We are especially pleased to serve all three Washington DC Metro airports. Most recently, we added direct flights to our hub in Montreal from Dulles and BWI airports. We are truly honored to be a growing part of the Washington DC community, and proud to support the work of Martha’s Table by donating all of the proceeds of the poutinerie to the organization.”
In addition to classic poutine (French fries, cheese curds, gravy), the Air Canada pop-up Poutinerie will showcase ten unique poutine dishes inspired by destinations across Air Canada’s growing global network.
These include London’s Corner Pub Fish & Chips, malt vinegar dusted chips, crispy fried cod, dill & caper tartar gravy; and Sao Paulo’s Sweet Chimi-Churrasco combining sweet potato fries, grilled carne asada, green chimchurri and queso blanco. Each poutine dish costs $5 with drinks priced at $4. Poutinerie proceeds will proudly go to a local nonprofit, Martha’s Table, working to increase access to quality education programs, healthy food, and family support.
“We are grateful for Air Canada’s partnership. Funds raised through Poutinerie by Air Canada will support our food and education programs, including our network of 48 monthly pop-up Joyful Food Markets in elementary schools throughout Wards 7 and 8 in DC Joyful Food Markets are no-cost pop-up farmer’s markets that extend healthy food access to 15,000 children and families.” – Caron Gremont, Senior Director of Healthy Eating
After savoring the poutine, visitors to the Poutinerie by Air Canada can “take off” on an Air Canada flight through a virtual reality, on-board experience and enter an Instagram and Twitter competition to win two tickets on Air Canada from DCA, IAD or BWI to any one of Air Canada’s over 200 destinations around the globe. Winners will be drawn daily for seven days.
Poutinerie by Air Canada is open to the public starting Friday, November 9th, through Thursday, November 15th.
Hours are 12 p.m. – 10 p.m.”
