Taste Tested: Hearty Catering’s Sweet Potato Poutine

We asked Chef Evelyne Gharibian of Hearty Catering to help us celebrate the humble Sweet Potato — and boy did she deliver!


Hearty Catering has been “green” from the begin; they use locally grown and organic food as the major component in all their cooking. That’s partly why they’re such great ambassadors of the Feast On program. Want a taste? Find them at the Evergreen Brick Works Saturday Market!

For this recipe, Chef Evelyne turns a typical poutine on it’s head with a rich mushroom gravy and earthy sweet potatoes.
