Herma’s News – Introducing “Cooking with Cheese”

Eating is so intimate. It’s very sensual. When you invite someone to sit at your table and you want to cook for them, you’re inviting a person into your life. – Maya Angelou

Cheese Special of the Week

30% off Gorgonzola – Saturday, while supply lasts

Gorgonzola is one of the world’s oldest blue-veined cheeses. It is produced in the northern Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy and contains unskimmed cow’s milk.

This cheese has a heavenly soft and crumbly texture with nutty aroma. It melts beautifully, making it a very popular cheese with which to cook.

Pairs well with Bordeaux and Zinfandel.
