It may already be full…but if you’re interested in learning some Greek recipes, check this out and give Infinitea a call.

“This month’s cooking class we are heading to the Mediterranean with a class centered around Greek Food.

The class and recipes has been produced by Ali Elgarani who was born and raised in Morocco before moving to Quebec. Ali has worked at over 20 restaurants throughout his career and currently works The Bridge Bistro.

Ali has designed a menu filled with some Greek classics and also some modern twists on familiar dishes.

The menu will include:

Feta ‘Crete’ – Feta cheese flambeed in coffee & Sambuca
Tomato Salad (capers, kalamata olives, parsley)
Spanakopita
Veg Moussaka
Greek Yoghurt, caramel apple & Fennel crumble

The class will start at 6pm and run for 2 hrs. Then everyone will sit down to feast on the night’s achievements.

As usual the class will be $35 and will include the 2 hr class, the meal, a glass of wine and the recipes for the evening.

The class is limited to 10 people but guests can also join for the meal and a glass of wine after for $15.

Call 7785195258 or text 7782330258 to book.Thanks!

15 Brilliant Ways To Beat The Fernie Heat

Beat The Fernie Heat - Slow Cooker and other ideas

1. Splash Park at Fernie Aquatic Centre – The splash park is good but there is very little shade. I suggest using it as a quick stop rather than a picnic and hang out spot. Plus, it’s good for ages 0-137.

2. James White Park Elk River beach or anywhere along the river – The best part about the Elk River is that the water is cold and on a hot day that’s exactly the right temperature.

3. Float the Elk River – For similar reasons to #2, the river is cold and you want to be on it or in it. Get a boat, paddle and a cold beverage, or two, and everything will be alright.

4. Cold EatsHappy Cow (hwy 3), Sweet Shoppe (2nd Ave), Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (2nd Ave) all offer cold treats like ice cream or frozen yogurt or popsicles etc. That might be just what you need. I also recommend the smoothies whipped up at Mugshots or Lunch Box (both downtown).

5. Hot Drinks – Some people enjoy a hot drink on a hot day. Infinitea (downtown Fernie) has a thick book of drinks that you can sip on from tea to coffee to Crabbies Ginger Beer! Of course, there’s also Freshies, Mugshots, Loaf or Beanpod. I hear The Valley Social is going to be serving coffee at the market in West Fernie. West Fernie is becoming a bit of a food/drink truck hot spot!

6. My Basement or any other basement – Our basement is like entering Narnia before the kids defeated the White Witch. Spoiler alert? It’s important to note Fernie Heritage Library has a basement (it’s also important to note that the library is closed on Mondays.)

7. A big beautiful tree – Shade is your friend. Grab a blanket, something hot or cold (depends on what your weapon of choice is) and, hopefully, a good book. That’s what I would be doing…perhaps I’d be under one of those big trees in the Annex Park. Yes.

8. Slow Cooker Meals – The slow cooker is your friend on hot days. No one wants to sit in a hot kitchen with the oven and/or stove on in 35 degree weather. NOPE. Get that little thing cooking for you all day long and you get to go out and do any of the above or below instead. I’d also recommend ordering Elk Valley Pizza because that’s a pretty easy idea too or, as a friend recommended, some ribs from Back Country Meats.

9. Clothes Line – You turn that heat into your own free dryer and it will work faster than your dryer on a 35 degree day, too. Brina 1 vs Sun 0.

10. Close Those Blinds and Curtains – This is slightly too obvious but I don’t believe we’ll be opening our blinds or curtains until October and we’ll be better off for it.

11. As mentioned earlier today, Loon Lake – What a fantastic spot which offers plenty of #7. I would recommend just going for the morning since it’s only a 40 minute drive away and you’ll get out there before the hottest part of the day. You could also go to any of the other beaches around Lake Koocanusa but I wouldn’t go to Surveyors at Kikomun Creek Provincial Park without an umbrella or some sort of portable shelter. 3&93 is also on the way home…in case you forgot.

12. Drink water. Heat stroke and dehydration is serious business.

13. Catch a matinee at Vogue Theatre – Jurassic World and Inside Out is playing at our local theatre at 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Not a bad idea!

14. Grocery Shopping – I was grocery shopping with my two kids one day last summer on a particularly hot day and this man came up to me and said “I used to do that with my kids, too. It’s the coldest place in town and they can just run around.” So true!

15. Time For A Siesta – When it’s too hot for #1 through 14, you nap.

There you have it. I’m sure there are more things you can do in Fernie to help survive a heatwave. Do you do anything special to beat the heat?
