Herma’s News – Open House – A Dutch Affair, Gift Ideas, Holiday Hours and Food Orders
The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life and become more interested in people than in things. – Thomas S. Monson
The hustle and bustle of customers choosing thoughtful gifts for loved ones and friends warms our hearts and makes us excited for the upcoming holidays. The Christmas season has begun and nowhere more so than at Herma’s. Come celebrate with us this Saturday.
Herma’s 25th Anniversary Holiday Open House
This Saturday…A Dutch Affair
Lets celebrate with traditional foods from Holland.
Herma and Harry were both born in Holland and truly have a soft spot in their hearts for the delicious foods that are traditionally served there. It is for this reason they waited until the final Open House Saturday of 2018 to serve beloved Dutch foods while simultaneously celebrating their 25th anniversary.
Foods to be tasted…
Kasseler Pork with Sauerkraut – Bitter Balls – Mashed Potatoes – Dutch Cheeses – Sweets – and more
Celebrating 25 Years!
We will also be presenting 5 cakes, each with 5 candles, to commemorate 25 years of Herma’s Fine Foods & Gifts.
Bitterballen – A Dutch favourite!
Bitterballen is to the Netherlands, what fish and chips is to England. In Holland about 300,000,000 are consumed each year. Delicious served with mustard, Bitterballen is a bite-size beef and gravy croquette. Come try this special treat in our Studio this Saturday. NOW available in our freezers.
An abundance of Christmas cheeses are ready for pick up!
Be sure to peruse the abundance of beautiful cheeses that are available for purchase in our cheese boutique. Many were especially chosen for holiday entertaining.
Cheese Department at Open House
While Dutch cheeses will be served in the Studio this Saturday, cheeses from around the world will be served in the Cheese Boutique. A few of these cheeses to be sampled are French cheeses like Marc de Raisin (a cow’s milk cheese aged under a thick layer of grape Marc) and two pyramid shaped goat cheeses…Valencay and Pouligny.
Beautiful meats will be served in the Cheese Department as well, along with Herma’s Signature Products.
Emile Henry’s Ceramic Cookware
At Herma’s we carry an array of beautiful ceramic cookware from France. For those that like to play chef, be sure to give a gift that will allow them to bake bread, lasagnas, pizzas or create exotic, juicy meals like with tagines as seen above.
Special for the holidays, we are now offering an Emile Henry Tagine that is white with red interior (available only while supply lasts). Also find special boxed sets of Emile Henry Dishes and Pizza Stones with special pizza spatula.
For the men we love…
Visit Herma’s to choose the perfect gift for the man you love. Masculine fragrances, soap-on-a-rope, specialty whiskey glasses and the high-class silver jewelry of Thomas Sabo all make beautiful gifts for men.
Complimentary gift wrap is available for items of $25 or more upon request. Later pick up time may be required at this time of year as the demand for gift wrapping is high. We do appreciate your patience concerning this matter.
