Herma’s News – Inspiration for Spring, Easter Gifts and Savings

The cool wind blew in my face and all at once I felt as if I had shed dullness from myself…The birds were singing. It was spring. – Burl Ives

Dear Customers,

While the beauty of spring has not yet sprung outdoors, one can still enjoy the beautiful home décor, fragrances and foods that bring the beauty of spring indoors. Let us inspire you for spring.

Springtime Inspiration

Herma’s beautiful gift wrap exudes the beauty of spring like nothing else. Any gift purchased at Herma’s may be wrapped and adorned with pretty flowers for just $10. Let someone know at the front desk that you would like your item wrapped and they will be happy to assist you.

Pretty spring pillows can really give your room a makeover, adding cheerfulness and bursts of color to your otherwise plain sofa or wing back chair.

We’ve carried Sophie Conran for several years and are happy to provide you with the ability to grow and add to your collection. Did you know we now carry a 20-piece cutlery set and serving spoon and fork set from Sophie Conran?

Gifts for Easter

Now that we are in the month of April you may want to think about shopping for the Easter Holiday. Little bunnies in pretty dresses and PJ’s may be found in our children section along with a furry monster/book box set, books and tulip fairy dolls.

We consider Herma’s to be the official confectionary store of Northumberland County this Easter season as we carry an amazing selection of chocolates, truffles, chocolate bombs (for hot chocolate) and caramels galore, all charmingly packaged.

Herma’s Juicy Drumsticks

Herma surprised us one afternoon at the store by simmering drumsticks in an Emile Henry Tagine for 2 hours. Also in the pot were shallots, olive oil and 4 tablespoons of Ti Kay La’s Red Pepper Paste. Because of the circulating steam created by the tagine’s cone-shaped lid, the meat on the legs ended up being fall-off-the-bone amazing. And the red pepper paste added just the right amount of heat. Yum!

Find Emile Henry Tagines and Ti Kay La’s Red Pepper Paste at Herma’s!

Other suggestions for Ti Kay La’s Red Pepper Paste –  You may also add a little paste to grilled shrimp, meatloaf or a meaty stew which will give them that same subtle heat.

Herma’s Cheese Shop

Our coolers are stocked with an amazing selection of Goudas, Blues, Cheddars, Brie and more including Parmigiana Reggiano, Pecorino, Raclette, Gruyere, Emmentaler, Burrata…even a beautiful large wheel of Stilton that is just waiting to be cut open. Come see all we have to offer.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Tips for your Springtime Spread (as seen in the above picture)

prosciutto-wrapped asparagus (steamed) – fennel salami rolled and placed in a pretty crystal bowl – springtime colors that compliment each other like Brebirousse’s peach-colored rind, peaches, carrots (not seen in picture) and yellow miniature tomatoes – Tiger Shrimp placed on the rim of a martini glass filled with one of Herma’s Signature Products – mini blueberry shish-kebobs

Notice that the cake plates and crystal bowls allow for different heights, which makes the spread more visually pleasing.

Also with this particular spread, green garnish and bibs of lettuce are key to filling empty spaces.
