Herma’s News – Time to get cozy in the kitchen!
There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been! – Percy Bysshe Shelley
Preparing foods in your own kitchen with ingredients that have been handpicked yourself adds to that warm, cozy feeling of being home. The aroma, the taste, and the act of creating can often be so much more special than any holiday or adventure. At Herma’s we have special items that will help with those long-awaited moments of creativity in the kitchen that friends and family so appreciate.
NEW at Herma’s
Centonze Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Centonze Olive Oil offers a beautiful bouquet of fruity olives freshly squeezed – very rich and complex. Its flavour contains grassy notes with hints of tomato and artichoke. This superb Italian olive oil has won countless awards and we are very proud to carry it at Herma’s.

Valtellina Casera DOP
Lovely Alpine cow’s milk cheese with an intense piquant taste and a hint of straw. Soft and elastic in texture, this cheese pairs well with red wines, blueberry jam, and rye bread.
Capreggio – a Taleggio-style goat cheese from 5th Town in Picton, Ontario that we will be sampling this weekend.
Herma’s Cheese Special of the Week
25% off Gorgonzola Dolce DOP
Gorgonzola “Dolce” DOP is a soft, blue, buttery cheese made with uncooked cow’s whole milk. This cheese, which was first created in the 12th century and named for a town in Lombardy near Milan, has a pale yellow, buttery paste speckled with blue coloured veins. It is sweet and mild with notes of sour cream and lactic tang. The cheese pairs well with wine, and especially Champagne. Also nice with walnut bread
