That being said, we will CONTINUE TO BE OPEN to customers within the store while still adhering to provincial government guidelines. If you would like to take advantage of our curbside pickup, however, go to the bottom of this newsletter for details concerning this.

Knife for Soft Cheese

A soft cheese knife, also known as an open work blade knife, features holes in the blade to keep soft cheeses from sticking. You can also use the holes to push a piece off of the knife. Used for Soft/ Semi-Soft cheese.

Cheese Plane

A cheese plane was made for achieving thinly sliced pieces of cheese. To slice the cheese, pass the plane along the top or side of the cheeses. The slice will then settle on the top of the plane’s spatula-like structure, making it easy to plate or serve. Use for Semi-Soft/Semi-Hard cheese like Gouda.

Cheese Cleaver

A cheddar knife, also known as a mini cleaver, cheddar cleaver, or semi-hard cheese knife, is made to cut hard cheeses. The wide blade and cleaver shape allows the cutter to use force and balance to push downward and cut slices. Use for Semi-Hard/Hard cheese.

Also at Herma’s from SWISSMAR are the Universal Knife, Hard Rind Cheese Knife and Spreader.

Spring Salad using Herma’s Chèvre

Herma’s Chèvre

Combine one container of Herma’s Chèvre with Orzo and drizzle with lemon olive oil. A diced cucumber is optional but adds a nice freshness to the Spring Salad. Makes an excellent side to our Village Grocer flank steak.
