Herma’s News – Father’s Day and Picnicking in June

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. – Leo Tolstoy

Dear Customers,

The beautiful June weather we are having is harkening us outdoors for grilling, picnicking and eating outdoors on the patio. We love providing foods that may be enjoyed in this manner, especially on Father’s Day as many of us have family get-togethers.

Picnicking in June

Image may contain: food

Go ahead! Take a big bite out of life while the getting’s good. Lay on your blanket outdoors and wile away the hours staring at clouds rolling by while listening to the pretty melody of birds. Maybe even have a little siesta in the sun after a lovely little picnic lunch.

At Herma’s we have what you need for that tasty picnic. Enjoy crusty bread, a hunk of cheese and tasty salami on that perfect summer day.

What you need for your picnic…

1. Bread

Enjoy Manoucher’s Baguette with butter and cheese or create a lovely sandwich using Manoucher’s Basil Bread that is shaped and folded around dried basil and fragrant olive oil.

Other breads from Manoucher

Fokachio Olive Oil and Herbs – Fokachio Romano Rosemary and Onion – Mediterranean Sundried Tomato – Persian Noon Folded Loaf Basil Sheep Milk Cheese – NEW from Manoucher! Nak’d Loaf (sliced bread using just 5 ingredients…flour, water, yeast, salt and olive oil)

We suggest spreading the Garlic Box’s Garlic Spread made with Real Butter on your bread. Absolutely delicious!

Call to have your baguette ready-to-go!

If you are on-the-go and want your baguette ready to eat, just call 905-885-9250 a couple of hours in advance of your arrival and we will be happy to have it thawed and toasted.

2. Delicious Meats

Have Prosciutto, Porchetta and Fennel Salami cut to your liking.

Packaged salamis include…

Spicy Soppressata Naturale Piccante, Mild Soppressata Naturale, Iberian Pork from Portugal, Salamino Piccante, Finocchiona IGP and Artisanal Handcrafted Salami from the Great Canadian Meat Company

3. Cheese

For picnics we like a good strong cheddar. Red Fox, Mapledale’s 5-year-old and 8-year-old Cheddars are all good choices. We also love a yummy Gouda – so smooth and mild, perfect in a salami sandwich. Cashel Blue would also be a tasty treat paired with buttered baguette.

4. Olives, Gherkins and a Dip

We have every type of olive imaginable – some of them even a little tipsy like with Gin, Vermouth, Vodka…even Sangria. Also at Herma’s find tortilla chips and salsas along with the Village Grocer’s Artichoke Dip and Spinach Dip. And let’s not forget a jar of gherkins, Piccard’s Peanuts, Fraktal’s Chocolates and some yummy Shortbread Co. Cookies.

5. Condiments

The Stonewall Kitchen’s Blue Cheese Herb Mustard, Rootham’s Caramelized Onion Chutney, the Garlic Box’s Cranberry Garlic Preserve along with their  Horseradish Garlic Jam are all scrumptious in a sandwich or on slices of baguette with cheese and meat.

NEW at Herma’s! The Garlic Box’s Caesar Dressing & Dip
A bold dressing, packed with a forward, garlicky flavour that is rooted in garlic goodness. Use it as a dip for carrots and celery as well as part of a delicious Caesar Salad.
