BONO Extra Virgin Olive Oil 25% off
We are excited to offer BONO’s beautiful Italia Olive Oils at a special price this week. Each individual olive oil is fashioned and named after a specific tarot card. What does the future hold for you in the kitchen?
The olive oil that bears the name of the temperance card offers rich floral notes and a pleasing fruitiness, with hints of banana, vanilla and a dash of sage, mint and basil. The full, refined flavor offers traces of dried fruit and celery, whilst providing a balance between pungency and bitterness.
Makes a beautiful olive oil dressing for chicken and mango salad or fish. Also nice with soft cheeses.
The olive oil that bears the name of the hermit card offers a full bouquet, rich in traces of dried fruit, lettuce and artichoke. The taste presents us with almond, fresh walnut and artichoke along with hints of pepper and bitterness that balance beautifully.
Use this olive oil in a salad with apple, celery and feta or as an accompaniment to soup.
The olive oil that bears the name of justice is both eclectic and balanced – perfect for any dish. A workhorse as we like to call versatile types of olive oils.
Great to use while cooking on the stove or any type of food preparation!
The olive oil that bears the name of the sun is hearty, generous along with being titillating and a bit spicy. It has a fine, unmistakable nose – an explosion of fresh tomato pulp and tomato leaf, followed by oregano and marine-like aromas. The flavour is full and strong with more than a touch of vegetable, freshly cut grass, celery and lettuce.
Use drizzled over a Caprese salad, in guacamole or a Bloody Mary.

The Cheese Shop
A decadent way to spend Valentine’s Day is with a beautiful cheese tray that you can snack on and pick at as you enjoy time with your loved one, friend or while treating yourself to a romantic movie. Find brie – our favourite for romance, along with cheddars, blues, Parmesan and so much more at Herma’s. We even carry a Chocolate Wensleydale Cheese.
Le Délice de Bourgogne
Le Délice de Bourgogne is a French classic triple crème cheese with a bloomy rind that is perfect for Valentine’s Day decadence. This seductive cheese is made by blending full fat cow’s milk with Crème fraîche. The result is a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth texture with a fine, delicate taste. The mushroom aroma of thin rind contrasts beautifully with its rich, creamy, buttery and tangy notes.
Pair with Champagne!
Created by the Borgo family in Vaughan, Ontario, Ashley Goat has a bloomy rind and pasteurized goat’s milk cheese interior. It also contains a line of ash running through the middle. FYI: The line of ash is reminiscent of olden days when monks would separate their morning milk from their evening milk. Enjoy its fresh, tangy flavour with a touch of earthiness, caused by the ash.
Pairs well with a crisp White, fruity Red or dry Rosé.
From all of us at Herma’s, we wish you a lovely Valentine’s Day and a beautiful Family Day weekend.
