Herma’s News – Father’s Day Gift Baskets, Renee’s Cooking Class and NEW Hurt Berry Hot Sauce

Sense the blessings of the earth in the perfect arc of a ripe tangerine, the taste of warm, fresh bread, the circling flight of birds, the lavender color of the sky shining in a late afternoon rain puddle, the million times we pass other beings in our cars and shops and out among the trees without crashing, conflict, or harm. – Jack Kornfield

Chef Renee Cooking Class

Chef Renee’s Summer Luncheon Class will take place this Saturday in the Studio. Thanks to all who made reservations to attend. We can’t wait for her to share with us all the new and exciting food trends that pertain to Summer Luncheons and how to make them special.

Summer Luncheon Recipes – available to ALL next week!

We realize only a small group will be able to attend Chef Renee’s class. Because of this, we would like to offer an information sheet which will highlight some of Chef Renee’s talking points with recipes she will use during the class. Look for them to be available at the front desk sometime next week.

Drew Jacobson of Hurt Berry Farms has a passion for spicy foods, gardening (especially chili peppers) and travelling the world. He and his business partner, Steve Best, who also has a passion for the culinary arts, create their sauces in small batches using ingredients from local Ontario farms.

They have concocted a fantastic fusion of ingredients for each of their very unique sauces. Each sauce, salsa and syrup is unique in its own right and will certainly make dining at home an adventure. 

We carry…

Viridescent (Mexican and Indian curry influences) – Starless (award-winning, dark and smoky) – Charred Threads (tropical, the hottest) – Pyrolatria (Asian twist) – Salsa Calefacto (super hot tomato-based salsa) – Smoked Chili Infused Bourbon Mash Maple Syrup

To find out more about the fresh ingredients, various hot peppers and spices that were used to create these exciting sauces and how they may best be paired with foods, check out our blog at hermas.ca.
