Herma’s News – Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Duck Confit, Pizza Stone Gift Set and Cheese

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. – Henry David Thoreau

Dear Customers,

Herma and Gordon have been busy bringing a certain magical je ne sais quoi to the store which may only be found at Herma’s during the Christmas season. We have also stocked our shelves with some of your favourite everyday foods along with enjoying the arrival of brand-new home decor items which include large bouquets of gorgeous flowers and chic, stylish lamps. Come see for yourself.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Christmas is ten weeks away and while that may seem like a long time, it goes by fast. That is why we are already preparing for the holidays.

Beautiful Ornaments

Christmas ornaments, soaps and stuffies at Herma’s make for some of the most fun shopping experiences. They arrive early and are gone sometimes before the Christmas season even begins. Good to shop early!

Charming Soaps

New festive soaps from England are absolutely charming and smell oh so divine. The small packages of soap, pictured above, make lovely place card holders and Christmas gifts at dinner parties.

Duck Confit – Tres French!

We carry an amazing Duck Confit that has been cooked very slowly in duck fat and herbs, the French way.

Find in our freezers.

Gordon’s suggestion on how to prepare…

Defrost Duck and bring to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Lightly season both sides with salt and pepper and place in a baking dish.

Cover baking dish with lid or tin foil and place in oven for 10 minutes.

Remove lid or foil and place in oven to broil for a few minutes to crisp.

According to Gordon the meat is fall off the bones delicious when prepared in this way.

NEW Pizza Stone Gift Set

Perfect for the accomplished or aspiring pizza chef, this set pairs a handmade pizza stone with an Italian beechwood peel. The premium round pizza stone goes straight from fridge or freezer to oven or grill, making it as versatile as it is effective. Its glazed surface helps prevent charring, and the pizza can be sliced directly on the stone. With a short handle for compact storage, the pizza peel transfers your pizza onto and off of the baking stone in one smooth motion.

Find toppings, dough mix, pizza sauce, Buffalo Mozzarella and fresh Parmigiano at Herma’s for your own creation.
