The unique Prince Edward Island Potato Dish includes</p> <p>four key ingredients: PEI French Fries topped with Gravy, Island Ground Beef and Canned Peas. Many</p> <p>have enjoyed it at their local restaurants, hockey rinks or take-outs, and now both Islanders and visitors</p> <p>can take their taste buds on the road by accessing an on-line map that show the locations of over fifty</p> <p>different restaurants proudly serving this home-grown dish!</p> <p>The origin of Fries With The Works can be traced back to 1975, to Pat’s Take-Out in Unionvale, PEI. As</p> <p>legend has it, a worker from a nearby potato warehouse stopped into Pat’s for a bite to eat before</p> <p>starting his night shift. Upon placing his order for French fries with gravy, owner Pat Pineau added some</p> <p>extra ingredients to his order in an effort to help the young worker stay full throughout his shift. The</p> <p>response was positive, and word of the dish spread quick. By the 1980s, Fries With The Works and</p> <p>variations of Pat's classic were being served Island wide. Today, nearly every dairy bar and local take-out</p> <p>across PEI carries a version of the 'Classic' Fries with the Works.</p> <p>In addition to the ‘Classic’ Fries With The Works, new creative variations have emerged. Restaurants</p> <p>have customized their own versions of Fries With The Works by adding veggies, shredded cheese or</p> <p>poutine curds. Some even add more protein, including Chicken, Pulled Pork, or Bacon. Whether in its</p> <p>classic form, or with a creative twist, no PEI summer would be complete without Fries With The Works!</p> <p>For more information and a map of Fries With The Works locations, check out</p> <p>www.frieswiththeworks.ca.</p> <p> </p> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-file field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> /sites/default/files/2018-09/Fries%20with%20the%20works%20-%20PEI%20Classic%20Dish%20Goes%20High%20Tech%21.pdf </div> </div> Wed, 05 Sep 2018 11:38:53 +0000 peipotato 397 at https://www.peipotato.org Potatoes in the Community https://www.peipotato.org/media-centre/potatoes-community <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Potatoes in the Community</span> <div class="field field--name-field-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2018-07/Tyne%20Valley.jpg" width="200" height="300" alt="" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/30" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">peipotato</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 07/19/2018 - 15:00</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-release-title field--type-string field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> Potatoes in the Community </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <p>(CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – July 5, 2018) Prince Edward Island Potato farmers, through the PEI Potato Board, are proud to add their support to community events around our province this summer.
