Herma’s News – Rememberance Day and Event Reminders, Entertaining in Style
With our backs to the wall and believing in the justice of our cause, each one of us must fight on to the end. – General Sir Douglas Haig
While we are looking ahead to the exciting holidays that bring the hustle and bustle of party preparations and gift giving, we also want to recognize the importance of taking time to remember all those that have served and are serving our country.
A time to reflect and be grateful.
From the bottom of our hearts and at the core of who we are as Canadians, we hold dear the rights and freedoms that we possess. It is because of these freedoms that we should meditate upon and be grateful for the men and women who have served our country – the men and women who have stood on guard to preserve our way of life.
After our moment of silence this Sunday, Novmeber 11th, we welcome you to join us for a slice of cake in our Studio as we commemorate this special day together.

Entertaining in Style this Holiday Season
While entertaining for the holidays keep in mind that guests should feel pampered in subtle ways by appealing to their senses. You may do this by providing delicious food and drink, lovely music to set the mood and beautiful serving dishes, crystal and home décor to delight the eye. As you prepare for your next party, keep in mind that Herma’s is the perfect place to make entertaining elegant, easy and fun.
Cathy has been raving about all the interesting and beautiful cheeses that have recently arrived at Herma’s. She is bubbling over with excitement as each shipment arrives for she anticipates they will make holiday entertaining an absolutely lovely experience.
Le Maréchal from Switzerland
If you like gruyere and appenzeller then you will love this flavourful, robust cheese which exhibits a creamy mix of nuts, flowers and herbs. Like other Swiss cheeses, the wheels of Le Maréchal are rubbed with fresh herbs. Pair with figs, fig spread or olives with a nice white wine. This beautiful cheese may also be enjoyed melted as fondue or on raclette for cozy winter experience. Sample Saturday!!
Dubliner is an original, award-winning Irish cheese produced in County Cork. Sweet, mild and mature, this cheese takes the nuttiness of a Swiss cheese and combines it with the bite of a Parm. Calcium lactate crystals in the cheese cause the Dubliner to have a high content of calcium. Pair with a full-bodied wine like Cabernet or pint of Guinness. Nice used in sandwiches, pastas or served with fruits like apples and pears.
