Herma’s News – Guest Margot Silver in the Studio, Black Friday and Gift Ideas

Christmas is a tonic for our souls. It moves us to think of others rather than of ourselves. It directs our thoughts to giving. – B. C. Forbes

Lampe Berger Consultation with Elizabeth Martin

This Saturday, November 24th,  is the perfect time to purchase your very own Lampe Berger or to give as gifts. Elizabeth Martin, our Lampe Berger Representative, will be visiting Herma’s, answering any questions you may have concerning your Lampe Berger lamps. Don’t let this opportunity to speak with her pass you by.

Lampe Berger – 120 Years of History

Originally designed to purify the air of hospital rooms at the beginning of the 20th century, the little lamp of the pharmacy technician, Mr. Berger, quickly enjoyed phenomenal success with the public. It gradually became a style icon, appreciated as much for its elegant lines as its delicate fragrances and used by leading figures like Coco Chanel, Picasso, Colette and Jean Cocteau. – Maison Berger

A Taste of Spain continued…Ole!

We will be enjoying a taste of Spain by sampling two very lovely Spanish cheeses. After sampling these beauties, be sure to try Margot’s Tapas and Paella!

Cabra al Vino

Queso de Cabra al Vino, which hails from Jumilla, in Murcia, Spain, is a drunken goat cheese that has been submerged in a bath of Doble Pasta wine for 72 hours. This submersion gives the rind a beautifully vivid purple hue.

Mild, sweet, and fruity, this goat cheese has a smooth, creamy, semi-firm texture. Pair with a bold Spanish red, such as Rioja, and figs.

Manchego 12 year DOP

The Manchego is a sheep cheese produced in the La Mancha region of Spain, also home to Don Quixote. It  is one of the most popular Spanish cheeses.

Our Manchego cheese, aged for a year, is crumbly in texture and has a sweet, lingering taste. Manchego cheeses are best paired with a sherry.

Rocce Sarde will also be sampled this Saturday. You’ll love this beautiful, fresh cow and sheep’s cheese, handcrafted in Sardinia, Italy.


Provolone is a delicious, versatile cheese that can be used in many lovely recipes. Here are a few ideas on how one might use this delectable cheese…

Pizza – Sandwiches – Quesadillas – Enchiladas – Stuffed Mushrooms – Open-Faced Bagels – Pasta Salad – Sliders – Garlic Cheesy Bread – Prosciutto Provolone Panini – Skewers – and so much more

Find a very nice Italian Provolone in our coolers!
