An evening of fine dining, exquisite wine or beer pairings, and enjoyable company, this is exactly what you have to look forward to at the Sawridge Inn’s Chef’s Table. The Chef’s Table is an evening in which the guests are introduced to an elevated dining experience. A multiple course menu is created based upon your taste and then matched with wine or beer that complements each course. In a private room, you and your guests are served by your chef for the evening who shares the secrets of each course so you can savour each bite.
Each year at this time we deck our halls and celebrate the Christmas holidays. While going through the hum-drum of yet another year we pop in our favourite Christmas titles like we’re on annual auto-pilot; but I, for one, am done with celebrating that Miracle on 34th Street. So if you’re like me and the classic movie titles are making you more ‘bah hum bug’ than ‘tis the season’, here are some alternative titles to consider this holiday season.
Maybe you’ve just moved here or maybe you’re a local. Either way, winter is inescapable and the coming of winter in this town sometimes takes on mythic proportions. A highlight of winter in the Wood Buffalo region is the annual Syncrude winterPLAY Festival, one of Events Wood Buffalo’s four major festivals, which offers the community a wide variety of events, both indoor and outdoor. Going on annually for over five years, winterPLAY has grown from a two day event to a two week event for celebrating winter.
WHY SHOULD YOU CARE ABOUT THE WOOD Buffalo Food Bank? Because you just might be one paycheque away from using it. That’s right. Not thinking about hunger, and going to bed with a full belly are two of the many things we take for granted. But, as the holidays approach, you can make a difference. Donate. Volunteer. Care.
The Wood Buffalo Food Bank is a non-profit organization funded through individual and corporate donations. It has been operating for almost 30 years in Fort McMurray.
Holiday Traditions & What Foods We Make
As we prepare to celebrate the holidays, either religious, cultural, or just your own traditions, we can’t forget to think of why we are doing what we do. One of my family’s holiday traditions is fresh pickled vegetables and refried stuffing.
