What’s a Canadian living in southwest Florida to do when a poutine craving hits? If you’re the general manager of the Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village, you ask your executive chef to make your favourite Canadian dish — with a twist.

Canadian Eric Ashton, general manager of the Westin Cape Coral Resort, met his poutine craving one day by asking the chef at the onsite Marker 92 Waterfront Bar & Bistro to make the classic Canadian dish and, although poutine never made it to the restaurant’s official menu, Canadian travellers in the know can order the three resulting gourmet poutine dishes during their stay from a secret menu.
