Herma’s News – Tea for Two and Cookies too – This Saturday!

It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! – Mark Twain

Mondays in May – Village Kitchen Luncheons

This past Monday Herma enjoyed entertaining guests in our Studio. She provided Fresh Green Pea Soup with a dollop of Crème Fraiche, a lovely leafy green salad with avocados,  three kinds of lasagna (meat, veggie, and spinach chicken), and La Rocca’s Caramel Cake. It was absolutely delightful. What better way to spend a rainy Monday than to be entertained by Herma at one of her lovely luncheons?
If you are interested in attending one of the other luncheons (May 8th and May 15th @ 12 p.m., $29.99), call 905-885-9250 to reserve your seat at the table.

Special thanks to Margot Silver!

We would like to extend a big thank you to Margot Silver for all the lovely pastas and oils she provided us this past Saturday. Her passion for delicious foods was certainly contagious and we appreciate the expertise she shared with us on Saturday. Also thanks to all those that participated and took part in this event.

Cheese Department

Come see all the amazing cheeses we have in stock and remember that we are available to create beautiful cheese platters for entertaining. This weekend we will feature the following cheeses…

Featured Cheeses – This Saturday

Cape Vessey Goat

This delightful cheese won the Grand Champion Goat Cheese award at the 2008 Royal Winter Fair. Salty and complex, this award-winning cheese is creamy on the palate with a rich flavourful finish.  Pairs well with fruity complex red wines like Pinot Noir, Cabernet, and Merlot.

We feel so lucky to have local cheese producers near by, especially Fifth Town Cheese, which is just down the road. Another 5th Town Cheese we will be featuring will be Capreggio. Capreggio is a goat cheese similar to Taleggio DOP, a cow’s cheese which we will also feature on Saturday.

Kaamps Original

Made in the Netherlands for generations, this is one of the few remaining Dutch farmstead creameries. The colour is orange with beautiful crystallization. It is a buttery cow’s milk cheese with a savory, nutty bite. Pairs beautifully on cheese board with cherry jam.

Special of the Week

Crossroads Sheep Cheese – 25% off while supply lasts!

This gouda is made in Dutch tradition with a wax coating and aged for six to eight months until its delicate flavours develop.

It is creamy with fruity notes that make it complex, evolving from an approachable combination of buttery sweetness and slight tang into deeper smoky, nutty notes.

Come in now for the savings!

Back by popular demand!

Its baaack! Choco 21 (chocolate infused blue cheese) and Amaretto Cheese (amaretto infused blue) were such a hit over Easter.  We are so happy to be able to offer them once again.

We hope you will visit us on Saturday and throughout the week. Have a wonderful weekend.
