Herma’s News – Tagine Cooking – The Village Grocer – New Policy and Hours

Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight. At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more. When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death. And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again. – C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Dear Customers,

Once again we must batten down the hatches in order to weather a crazy storm that will leave us homebound for days. We know it is difficult, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

The safety and well-being of every person who sets foot in our store is our top priority. That being said we are remaining open to a limited capacity of 6 customers at any given time along with also offering curbside pickup service.

At Herma’s we hope to be of some help during these trying times by providing delicious foods and new ways of cooking that will allow you to experience an adventure within your very own kitchen.

The unique shape of the ceramic lid allows evaporated juices to circulate, providing us with tender, moist and flavorful cuisine.

Tagine Tips

Begin on low heat. – Make sure there is always some liquid in your tagine when cooking. – If necessary, add a small glass of water. – The tagine steam cooks the food, so keep the lid on during cooking. – A long cooking time on low heat gives the best results.  – Marinating your meat with Moroccan spices the night before will provide extra flavour.

Moroccan Meal

Moroccan food is often eaten directly from the Tagine. Bread is used to mop up sauces and to pick up foods. When using a plate to eat from, however, use the bread to mop up sauces and clean your plate. Rice served on the side helps soak up the tasty juices as well. 

Find Emile Henry’s Ceramic Tagines and Epicentre Spice’s Moroccan Blend at Herma’s. (While supply lasts. Feel free to call 905-885-9250 to inquire about availability.)

Village Grocer Foods

This week Harry will be filling our shelves with all of your favorite Village Grocer foods. We love the many sides, entrees, soups, gravies, sauces, quiches, meat pies, steaks, hams and chicken that the Village Grocer provides us.

Their packaged meals are healthy, fresh and easy to prepare. To keep abreast of what we carry from the Village Grocer, be sure to check Facebook on Saturday mornings as we will be providing current pictures of much of what is in our freezers.

NEW! Herma’s Store Policies and Winter Hours

After careful consideration, in addition to curb-side pickup, we have decided to open our doors to a limit of six customers. We feel this will adequately keep customers spaced apart at a safe distance while shopping.


OPEN 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. everyday.

Ordering Curbside Pickup…
Call 905-885-9250 to order with method of payment ready. Call when arrive. Stay in car. We will bring items to you.
During in-store shopping…
We respectfully ask that you wear a mask over both mouth and nose, use our hand sanitizer located at the entrance of the store, keep a safe distance from others and touch as little as possible. We appreciate your understanding in this matter as the safety and health of everyone is our top priority.
We look forward to seeing or hearing from you in the coming days!
Stay safe and be well.
