Herma’s News – June Brides and Mother’s Day – Dream Destination for Gifts

Cheese Department

Cathy just completed her first Cheese Presentation for Spring. What a treat!

Cathy began the class by discussing the many ways in which a cheese platter might be put together. She also arranged a beautiful tray of her own.

First she situated fruit of different height and color throughout the board. After that, she artistically placed each cheese on the platter. Lastly she filled in the spaces with crackers and breadsticks. In this case the breadsticks were beautifully wrapped with scrumptious prosciutto.

We enjoyed listening as Cathy discussed the knives used for each cheese. She also shared with us the many ways in which a cheese may be presented.

After the above beautiful cheese platter was created, Cathy, with Margaret’s assistance, presented each guest with a beautifully displayed group of cheeses to taste and discuss. Lovely condiments were provided which greatly added to the cheese tasting experience. A delicious cake was enjoyed after.

All in all, a wonderful cheese tasting experience. Cathy and Margaret did a marvelous job.

Note: Harry’s small cheese boards proved to be an ideal vehicle for serving cheese to each guest. They are available for purchase.

Join us for Cathy’s next cheese presentation!

If you are interested in joining Cathy and Margaret for our next cheese presentation on Wednesday, May 9th, call 905-885-9250 or stop by to reserve your seat at our table. Please have method of payment ready to secure order ($50 pp + tax).

Gruyere NOW at Herma’s!

Gruyere is an excellent Swiss cow’s-milk cheese whose nutty flavour has a wonderful melting texture. Melt as Fondue, bake with pasta, pour over potatoes, or use as a sauce with a soufflé.

Margaret recommends using Gruyere to make this Cauliflower dish…
