Cheese Department

Cheese in the Winter

Cold winter nights at home can be truly glorious if spent in the correct way. Certain cheeses have been produced and enjoyed by Europeans for centuries. There is a reason they have stood the test of time. They are the ultimate comfort food and some are especially amazing when enjoyed in the winter.

We are excited to feature two of our favorite winter cheeses this weekend. What’s more? They are being offered at a special price.

This Weekend – 25% off Raclette & Roquefort Blue

Also enjoy a taste of melted Raclette in the Cheese Department as it will be sampled this Saturday, January 20th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Raclette is a fantastic way to enjoy winter fun in the kitchen. Swiss-German convent texts dating from as far back as 1291 describe Raclette as a nutritious meal that was consumed by peasants in the mountainous Savoy region of Switzerland and France.

Just imagine these peasants on snowy mountains in snug, candle-lit kitchens.  So cozy and charming! You can bring this exciting ancient tradition to your own kitchen along with the oozing, seductive texture and taste that only Raclette has to offer.

Invite friends and make it a party!

Raclette Machines

Also find Raclette machines at Herma’s. They come in all sizes – from mini on-the-go to party size.

Roquefort Blue

In France, it has been called “the cheese of kings and popes” as it was a favorite of Charlemagne early in the last millennium.

Rich, creamy, tangy and salty in flavour, this blue will make your salad a work of art. Crumble along with walnuts or create your own delicious dressing.

Cathy suggests drizzling it with honey for a nice sweet-versus-salty combination. Of course don’t forget how lovely this blue is when crumbled over a baked potato or placed on a juicy hamburger or steak.

Purists, of course, will tell you that it can stand on its own without food – perhaps by the fire while enjoying a glass of whiskey
