Herma’s News – NEW at Herma’s, Food Suggestions Great for Easter, Savings

In the flight of the butterfly, the chirping of a tree-toad or the sweep of an eagle – my life loves to see how others live, exults in their joy, and so far is partner in their great concern. – Edward Everett Hale

All natural sweet & spicy jams and spreads from Saltspring Kitchen Co. pair perfectly with soft cheeses, meats and spicy cocktails. To entertain guests for this  upcoming holiday weekend try dipping your shrimp into their Spicy Tomato Savoury Spread as a unique alternative to cocktail sauce. Pair salmon with Herma’s Signature Lemo-licious atop sliced  Baguette or a Fine Cheese Co. cracker.

Spicy Tomato Savoury Spread brings fresh ginger, onions, jalapeños and a cheeky heat to the table. Pairs with aged Cheddar, Brie, smoked Gouda, grilled cheese, avocado toast, sandwiches, burgers, eggs, and tourtière.

For breakfast or with tea…

Salt Spring Kitchen’s Rasberry & Rose Spread would be lovely on toast, in a crepe or enjoyed with a brie or triple cream cheese. A special treat for guests and for yourself.

Tools for the Kitchen

Be a superstar in the kitchen with Emile Henry and Dreamfarm Kitchenware.

Dreamfarm’s Smood effortlessly creates smooth mash in seconds by trapping food and forcing it through the thin gaps between the collapsing spring coils.

The Emile Henry Fish steamer, or papillote , allows you to cook all types of fish simply, easily and evenly. The lid keeps fishy smells from filling the kitchen and creates a confined environment for steam cooking. Simply place your fish in the middle of the dish, add some vegetables and seasoning, close the lid and put in a hot oven.

Herma’s Cheese Shop


Say cheese! Beautiful cheeses for your next platter…

Queso de Oveja Trufado (Sheep with Truffles)

Very similar in appearance to Manchego, this sheep’s milk cheese from Spain is infused with truffles and has a rich, intense, balanced flavour. Pairs well with Rioja.

Le Dournier

This semi-soft cheese from Quebec offers a texture that  is smooth and supple. It’s filled with small eyes and has a layer of vegetable ash running through the middle. Its aromas are earthy, milky and rustic, while the flavors are creamy and mild.

Chateau de Bourgogne

This is a very popular rich, creamy, buttery triple cream from Burgundy, France. Absolutely heavenly spread on Herma’s Homemade Crostini and enjoyed with a glass of Champagne. You may want to consider adding one of our delicious fruity cheese condiments to this soft white cheese.

It’s back…Double Gloucester with Blue Stilton (from England) layers the two cheeses together to produce a smooth, nutty cheese with the creamy tang of blue cheese. This orange and white striped cheese is pretty placed on a cheese platter.

Just in time for spring…Feta and Haloumi, great used in Greek salads or on a Mediterranean board with pita bread, hummus and Tzatziki.

Herma’s Signature Products

Herma’s Signature Products would be a lovely addition while entertaining this Easter. Consider serving Stilton Pate, Sundried Tomato Dip, Lemo-licious and/or Seafood Medley in pretty crystal with garnish.

Pictured are the Sundried Tomato Dip (great for dipping vegetables or enjoying with spicy crackers) and Stilton Pate (A little dollop of stilton pate is delicious with steak or spread on a pumpernickel round.).


Delicatessen-style Porchetta Ham from Italy (sweet with a touch of smoke) may be sliced to your liking by Janis, Margaret or Herma. Try placing in pretty folds on buttered slices of baguette or create small bite-size sandwiches. Other meats that may be sliced are Prosciutto and Fennel Salami. Find  packaged meat (salami, chorizo, prosciutto and more) in our coolers around the corner from our cheese shop.
