Herma’s News – Foods to Enjoy, Let our favourites be your favourites.

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. – Lord Byron

Black Currant Spread -and- Full Berry Sauce & Drink Mix are both ALL-NATURAL black currant berry sauces that provide amazing flavour to sweet dishes. More than just adding a burst of berry flavour, this sauce is high in antioxidants which provide great health benefits.

As you can see, we placed our ice cream in pretty cups and saucers as well as long stemmed glassware which  made our food-tasting experience extra pleasurable.

An unforgettable prosciutto pairing!

Prosciutto-Watermelon-Pecorino Romano

We love Prosciutto’s dainty, almost sheer quality and its balance of sweet and salty not found in other meats. The sweet side of prosciutto pairs beautifully with the saltiness of Pecorino Romano while the slight saltiness of it also pairs beautifully with the mild sweetness of watermelon.

Combine all three and you have a refreshing treat perfect enjoyed outdoors on a hot day. 

Find both Pecorino Romano and Prosciutto at Herma’s – fresh from the shores of Italy.

While prosciutto comes from the hind leg of the pig, pancetta comes from its belly and is salt cured. We think it adds amazing flavour to pasta dishes, like Carbonara, added to soups and sprinkled over salads. We especially love it used in a Caesar salad.

Cooking Pancetta

Preheat oven to 375° and line sheet pan with parchment paper. Place prosciutto sliced thin in single layers on a pan and bake until crisp, 15 minutes.

Ask to have both prosciutto and pancetta sliced to your liking. Janice, Margaret or Herma will be happy to assist you.
