Welcome to the Gravy Bowl
To kickoff Poutine Week we are bringin' it with the second annual Gravy Bowl competition. Teams made up a Chef + a Calgary Stampeder and a + Local Brewery create poutines and go head to head throughout Poutine Week to sell the most poutines for Mealshare. Stay tuned for each team's poutine entry and follow the smacktalk on social!
