It's going to be a busy summer at Island Lake Lodge, with the 2nd Annual Untamed Kootenays event helping kick it off!

Let’s talk about Nourishment. Let’s talk about Women. Let’s talk about how the two go hand in hand and how everyone can win.

If you have travelled across town for the purpose of going to a specific artisanal market or a restaurant you read about, you are engaging in food tourism. The food tourism industry rebuilds communities, preserves cultures, educates travellers and inspires creativity.

In celebration of the harvest, the organizing committee for the Chautauqua and Fall Fair invites you to an authentic Ukrainian dinner with all the trimmings to celebrate the bonds of community and to celebrate the contributions of the Ukrainian, Slavic and Polish communities to Fernie. Proceeds from the supper will benefit the Syrian Refugee Committee, continuing Fernie's long tradition of welcoming immigrants from around the world.

This June, Island Lake Lodge Catskiing​ welcomes food lovers to experience elevated Kootenay cuisine as Island Lake’s Head Chef Keith Farkas invites two notable Calgary chefs to join him in the kitchen for the 1st Annual Untamed Kootenays Culinary event.

Mark has been cooking professionally for over ten years and is equally serious about his lifestyle and work. After bartending to support his ski bum lifestyle, he thought he’d try his hand in the kitchen. Inspired by a number of chefs along the way he decided to get his chef certificate at George Brown College in Toronto before diving into a life in the mountains which has included a lot of cooking (Lizard Creek Lodge, Island Lake Lodge, Bulldogs and now Picnic) and a lot of skiing. When I met Mark he was adamant about sharing some simple yet crucial tips regarding grilling meats.
